Firstly sorry if this post is in the wrong place, I'm new here and the website suggested to post here if I wasn't sure. I'm working on a replica R2-D2, part of the R2 Builders Club and I've come up with an idea of using a gyroscope for when he is in 2 legged mode.
I don't intent to drive him round in 2 legged mode cause well that's how accidents happen haha. When he is in 2 legged mode however I am going to give him the ability to adjust himself as he will have 2 linear actuators in his shoulders that will turn his legs from straight up to slanted. Sometimes he will be on a slope, not much of a slope but uneven floors and what not so I basically want to put a gyroscope in him and when they're connected to the shoulder motors if he starts slanting over he can adjust himself.
James Brunton from XRobots did a similar thing with him BB8 unit where the droid triggered motors to stay up right, I've seen a few youtube videos of this working however it uses a 3 asis board and I think I just need one asis so I was wondering if there was any type of boards in particular anyone would recommend if they haven't got board of reading this post already haha.
Any help would be appreciated!
