Quadropod - New version
This is the second generation of Quadropod. Features:
Replaced logic board. Moved from ESP32 to Arduino UNO + Servo Shield (16 servo, 2 DC motors). Although nice, ESP32 was giving me headaches with generated PWM for servo. Sometimes the signal was interrupted, giving wrong position to a servo. Plastic gears didn’t like that at all. 3 servos went out of order.
Upgraded motors from SG90 with plastic gears to MG90S with metal ones for more reliability and power.
Upgraded design of some plastic parts. Replaced parts that required extra assembly with solid ones.
Tips of the legs can now be augmented with rubber pads for more control on slippery surfaces.
