Possible with Arduino?

Is something like this even remotely possible with arduino (well at least the programming and servo controlling):

Thinking of starting a project much similar to that but with less features/functions … is arduino a good/possible choice ?

Any recommendations/suggestions, even about the rest of the stuff, radio, control, etc would be appreciated.

I think controllibg 18 servos directly with Arduino would be quite a task. You can get some l controller borads that can be serially controlled from Arduino and they can con trol some servos. Thats probably the easiest way to do it.

quite… however I recommend you use lynxmotion’s own SSC-32 servo controller

that way you can control up to 32 servos using nothing but a serial connection to the arduino. plus it’s quite affordable (~$35 USD)

I probably should have just included this link in my last post:

I built a hexapod using the arduino and SSC-32

Thats good advice. And a cheap way to control 32 servos.
