Flash Back Friday: September 9th, 2009 - Day 19 of building R2-TD, TOUCHDOWN!

Day 19 was a slow night. I began the night grinding the last little bit off the bottom bolts.

Than Moose and I drilled the holes in the center support pipe so the legs move as one.

After a quick trip to the hardware store, The legs now move as one! Heres R2-TD as we score! :)

Flash Back Monday: September 4th 2009 - Day 18 of building R2-TD, more support and dome motor holders

Its a Flash Back Friday Monday - (Happy Labor Day!)

Day 18 of R2 brought more work on the internal support and dome motor holders. Here I finished assembling the pieces for the motor holders and actually got the motor on it. I had to modify one of the pieces because the motor I'm using is larger than everyone Else's. I also got the internal support bolted down so now R2 will be solid on his legs. Here are some pictures of tonight's build.
