Had trouble finding time to build R6 and update this blog due to being very busy at work this past month. but now I'm on vacation this week for Droid-Con 2. Let the games begin.
Version 2 foot drives are now complete, assembled, installed and tested.
It's a bit sluggish on the carpet, but I think I can fix that by tightening the drive belts a little more.
In addition, I've started working again on the Logic Displays. My big road block of late has been securing the fibers in the bezels. Recently it was suggested to me to try using a hot glue gun. Amazingly that worked perfectly. I now have both halves of the Front logic Display fibered up and ready for installing.
But before I do that, to give the logics more depth, I glued in another piece of styrene behind the logic cutouts in the head. When dry, I'll cut out the holes, fill the seams and then install the Front Logics.
To fill in all the gaps and seams on the head, I'll be using a product used for minor automobile body repair, Bondo. I've never used this stuff before but I'm told it's the best stuff to use for this purpose.
This weekend is the 2nd annual Droid-Con! If you're coming, see you there. Of course I'll be taking some video and pictures.
