About the AH2 Walking Robot
The AH2 hexapod robot uses an advanced mechanical advantage leg design. This leg design provides the maximum holding strength with the minimum current draw. The two DOF (degree of freedom) allows this robot to be steered like a tank. Forward, reverse, gradual and in place turning is supported. The robot uses 12 HS-422 servos for the legs. The combo kit includes everything you need to make a functional robot except batteries. This is sure to be a popular implementation of the traditional inline hexapod design.

The Mechanics
The robot is made from ultra-tough laser-cut PVC structural components, custom injection moulded components, and high-quality aluminum Servo Erector Set brackets.

Controlling the Robot
Several different kits are available. By offloading the servo pulse generation and sequence movement timing to the SSC-32, your microcontroller has plenty of power to do some really cool things. The current programming allows the robot to walk from PS2 control or autonomously. Note that this robot takes full advantage of the SSC-32's built-in hexapod sequencer; simply send the right commands from a serial source and watch the robot walk!

Powering Options
The robot is compatible with the following batteries and chargers.
  Chargers
    > NiCad & Ni-MH Universal Smart Charger (USC-01)
  Batteries
    > 6.0 Volt Ni-MH 1600mAh Battery Pack (BAT-03)
    > 6.0 Volt Ni-MH 2800mAh Battery Pack (BAT-05)

Important!
To keep costs down we are not providing printed Assembly Guides. They are provided online, so you will need to print them when you order the kits. By providing the Assembly Guides online we can provide more detailed and up to date information than the old hardcopy method allowed.
