This robot is obsolete, recommend you make our other robots.

Sorry... really new to all this, so this may be a stupid question. When I look at the specs on the servo motors it show that 0 is the middle and +90deg is all the way right, and -90 is all the way left. When I set the servo motors to all the way right the robot goes nuts. Do you mean for them to be at 90 relative to 0deg being all the way left?

They have different interpretation. Looks like they share same view of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Servo_control.
Here, the servo 90 degree is the middle position away from the most left (or right depends which direction you looking to the servo).

That was my gut feeling at first! Thank you for all the work and the quick response. You are helping my son and I learn so much, just from this one project!

when I try verify the .ino file , hv error

ezarduinoquadruperobot.ino:5:26: error: Oscillator.hpp: No such file or directory
ezarduinoquadruperobot:154: error: 'Oscillator' does not name a type
ezarduinoquadruperobot.ino: In function 'void setup()':
ezarduinoquadruperobot:165: error: 'servos' was not declared in this scope
ezarduinoquadruperobot.ino: In function 'void locomotion(angle_t*)':
ezarduinoquadruperobot:325: error: 'servos' was not declared in this scope

I guess you need to update your arduino ide, this is the demo of uploading https://youtu.be/hrOBFPLUjd4

Looks like a fun little thing. Collected and queued to print / build. Thanks for sharing!

we have another design http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2317065, perhaps you will like it too.
