Wow!!! After a first day of learning the how’s and do’s of my artoo the second days a blast. More pictures I will post in afew days but this video speaks for itself. First the artoo “builder” need to know information. After i did some small rewiring and reprograming of my vex controller last night artoo preformed like a pro. One charge lasted the hole day will not real energy drain. I’m using a 12v 25 amp gel battery for running both wheels and a 12v 4.5 amp battery for the dome (spinning). I may change it to a 24v’s in the future but that could be overkill as well as unnecessary extra weight. The light’s in the dome use four 9v’s, which seems to last forever. I’m only using 10 LED’s at present with a mile of fiber optics, lol. They have been running for days on the same charge. I used an additional 12v 4.5 amp battery for the soundsystem.
Ok, about the second. The public loved him. The kids touched him a little too much for my liking but I kept smiling. In the end i got a guarded escort by the 501st Nordic Garrison, which helped a lot. Also on day 2 I got the chance to do a photo shoot with actor Matthew Wood ( the voice of General Grievous )
