BRAT      
slide 1
                3 Servos per leg. Battery is in front held with white tie wrap              
slide 2
Back of the BRAT, on-off switch front, SSC32/U sequencer board on top. Heat sink on right side under                wood base is big power diode to reduce voltage from Lipo battery (7.4 v) to something safer for the servos.

                PS2 Controller. Buy from eBay for $5.00              
 
I'm currently trying to make it walk using Lynxmotion Visual Sequencer commands. Once I get that done, then Ican replace the SSC32/U with a "BotBoarduino" board and progam the board with the same commands, controlled  by a PS/2 Controller.                     
BRAT is the name given to a semi-humanoid walking robot by Lynxmotion. The acronym represents the words Bipedal Robotic Articulating Transport. I don't like it (too pompous) but the acronym is simple and easy to refer too, so I kept it.        
I didn't get a BRAT kit from Lynxmotion. I had some servo brackets and servos left over from other projects and decided to make one of these. I got a few parts from my Humanoid-Biped (17 DOF) which I find too hard to program at this stage. Making a 6 DOF walking-only robot is a better starter.
