    Thanks for the info! After some testing, the power supply I have (MeanWell LRS 200-5) allows for up to 5.8v, 38A capacity. I’m doing some testing this weekend and report back if it works well.

    The connections in the picture weren’t yet hooked up since we had just finished the left-arm. Our power supply (5v (variable to 5.5v), 40A) just came in a few days ago. I’m waiting on a few more pieces and then everything will be wired up. We have tested servos individually, but soon we will be able to test it all together!

    • Very good!
      5V power supply will be secure for your tests. Though I suggest, to increase speed gestures, it is better to use a 6V power supply.
      It makes a difference!

    WOW! That finish looks great!

    Does the mesh connecting the clavicles near the neck get in the way of the shoulder pistons?

    Our InMoov (named Andy) is starting to come together! Andy will be part of our display on 3D printed robots at my university’s Engineering Open House come this spring.

    • Cool!!
      Is Andy connected or not yet? It seems on the picture that the cables are still running loose.

    Hey Rodolfo. I know you replied to Gael, but I just wanted to say that the HK1529B has equal (and in some cases, better) specs than the HS-322HD. It should work fine. That being said, I haven\’t personally tested them, so I can\’t attest to the quality of servo.

    • Really my question was to you Celeb. Many Thanks for your fast reply Already I’m waiting my first hk15298b servos, but here in spain is easier get the hi tec servos. But as you said the hk is better that hs, then I will continue using the hk because I’m not expert servos user to configure and hack another ones than are not in…[Read more]

    Getting the shipment of servos for our InMoov was like Christmas coming early!

    • luky ….

    • Oh my!!

      • Is a pleasure To meet you, I have a question: Does The servo HK15298B is equivalent to Hitec 33322S HS-322HD Standard Deluxe Karbonite Gear Servo, as show it in your picture? ?????
