so I have been working on a design for a humanoid robot. as far as cad models and everything I will show them when I finished with the initial design. But I ran into something a little odd when I was looking into components the last few days.
HSR-8498HB servos when bought individually are around $59.99 a piece. So lets say that the robot requires 16 servos.... 16 multiplied by 60 is like $960. Part of my goal of this project was to completely make the robot with my own design, and avoid kits such as the Robonova. But what I didn't realize is that the Robonova would be around $899.99 for the kit, which includes 16 HSR-8498HB servos.
What I am getting at here is that you pay less for all the servos, a micro controller, battery, frame and everything else that come with the robot than you would if you purchased all of the servos individually. I know they are the same servos, but is their something not included with them in the robot that isn't with them individually?
(I would also like to say that I will be using the axon for this project and not the Robonova controller just because of the more versatility of it)
