Can someone who has already built the robot recommend a servo engine model?
Hopefully it is sold on BandGood

You can watch my youtube for guideline

Hey, the android app is not available on google play... any alternative?

The app is not working even though you have installed it.

Hi, I can't download the android app from your website, can you help me? Thank you.

I just finally was able to craft the correct servo arm for this project. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3016736# enjoy.

Thanks.I have used yours and created mine also.

So I have printed all of the items now, and I’m looking for direction on where to purchase the electronics needed for this project? I am really looking forward to the coding exercise but would like to get the rover fully assembled first.

you can watch my youtube channel and subscribe it if you dont mind

Hi, is there an option for a DC motor instead of continuous rotation servos? I imagine you can mount an L293d in one of the insert, but I'm just wondering if you've made a part designed for DC instead of the servos. :) TIA!

Hello, how to buy these modules? Btw, I am in China.

A question for those who have made this - running LEDs off a 6V source without a current limiting resistor will burn them out quickly.
Is this everybodys experience?
What other problems have others had?
Is there a trouble shooting guide and a proper wiring diagram?

That is a great question! We are going to update our instructions - for example, we use LEDs with resistors added. We would love to hear other problems so that they can be addressed in updated instructions.

The files were last updated in 2016, and there is no mention on the assembly instructions on your website about using resistors for the LED's.

I mean I'm sure I could figure it out eventually ... but is there an updated assembly document coming?

Ok thanks. Am looking forward to your updated instructions. I note that there is a working Arduino code on youtube too but have yet to try it. At this stage I've assembled my Juno and will run it later this week. I will share my findings with everybody. To those people who have already made Juno - what did you find ? What did you have to change?

awesome :) would be nice to turn it autonomous with an ir sensor also.

Can this be printed with a 3D printer with a plate size of 4" x 4"?

GREAT GREAT ROBOT! Does Juno balance itself like a self balancing robot? See this other as refence: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2306541

Remotely controlled - Arduino Self balancing robot

It doesn't - but that is a great way to extend the project

great project, I have on problem. My servos did not come with the quadhorn that this model uses, I tried to find something I can print but only found this : https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:180394 and it is to big to fit. anybody got a stl file / link for one that fits ?

9G Micro Servo Quad Horn

I had the same problem, I remixed a servo that I found in Thingiverse, but while arms are perfect, now the hole in the middle is not quite big enough. So close to the end of this project!

Great project! mine is almost complete... are you planning an iOS release or should I think of buying an android phone?

We are hoping to do a web-based control but that is some time away.
There are some bluetooth modules that will talk to iOS but they are more expensive (probably cheaper than new phone though)

Im having a lot of problems communicating through bluetooth, is there a troubleshooting guide for this project?

Great project, I'll try it!

Nice Work !!!, Thank you for sharing .I will make one.

Wow!!! Thanks for sharing this very nice project!!!
