I've designed a hexapod with 19 servos and it needs some brains. I'm looking at Mega, Pololu, and ServoRotor boards. The research shows all will do the job. Since my programming experience is at the advanced novice state, I'm wanting something that will not be too much of a headache. So with that in mind, the Mega is low on the list for programming but tops for cost. ServoRotor is the same for programming but about double for cost. Pololu is number one for programs because of it's GUI but about 3X the cost of a Mega. One disadvantage is that it's language is slightly different from the Arduino IDE. I have an ultrasonic range finder that I want to use and writing the script for that would be a challenge. I have an UNO that I thought I could use for the sensor and feed the output to the Pololu but that's more parts.
Anyway, advice, suggestions, comments would be much appreciated.
