servos, chapulas, cylinders and Skyway...in other words...

Random Questionage:

1.) Can we use more than 2 servos on the robot?

2.) Has anyone recieved any of their ordered pneumatic cylinders yet?

3.) Has anyone had any issues with Skyway? One of our engineers called friday and was on hold for quite a while…and if not, does anyone have any specs/pics on the 9"x2" pneumatic wheels?

Thanks everyone…I know some of these have probably already been answered, but if you could take the time out to do so that’d be great.

The Skyway computer decided that they had a certian type of tires that we wanted but they didn’t, so instead of getting them Fri, we should get them on Tue. That’s about it.

Don’t forget that the torque motor is basically a powerful servo, and can be used as such.

The Syway website is; http://www.skywaytuffwheels.com/products/beadlok/index.html and there are pictures there.
Does does anyone know if we can use any of these other wheels? (The Yahoo forum is just not working for me :frowning:

Thanks,
Jim

The AHL says ANY wheels from Skyway this year, so go nuts…

i must confess…

that i did chat with a Skyway Wheels salesperson for about 30 minutes or so. he was friendly and i felt like talking (about robots and stuff)
