Hi All,
I've recently purchased  the metal work to construct a BRAT clone whilst recovering from an illness, construction was straight forward, thanks to pictures on the Lynxmotion web site!!! Now for the downside, my knowledge of programming is very limited, but I have managed to write a simple sketch to centre the 6 servos and make the BRAT stand, but trying to get it to walk without tying it's legs up is proving to be a problem!!!!!! My question is, is there anyone out there who has managed to get one of these walking, able to provide me with some example code to get me started????????

They appear to have a users forum ( http://www.lynxmotion.net/ ), that would probably be a better chance at getting help the here. But who knows someone may just pop up here and know all about that product.

Hi,
I've had a good look around their forum, but the majority of threads refer to their SSC32 interface board, I'm trying to keep the cost to a minimum and use an Uno to drive the servos directly!!!!

Could you post the code you are using for your robot, a wiring diagram, and give more detail on how exactly the legs are interefering with each-other (pictures or a short video could also be useful)?

The ssc-32 is part of making the brat easier to control. It can make slow timed servo movements via commands given to it. Somebody has posted a servo library that incorporates slow servo movement commands. You probably need to study the timing setup in the servo sweep example code if you don't want the servos to move at their normally fast speed.
Consider the daffodil. And while you're doing that, I'll be over here, looking through your stuff.   8)
