Video Update

**** Warning Large Video File ****
This video may help explain the direction I'm going with the code, computer and Phidgets. It shows what I have so far.
Once I get all the Phidgets I'll need and the other parts for the computer,
I should be able to start wiring R2 and finally have him moving.

Looks pretty cool man!!

I would prefer the joystick up and down for moving R2 and left right for the dome. How does he turn?

The left joystick is setup for Arcade control. So it drives R2 like you were playing a video game.
It can be set for Tank mode just by switching the servos around.
The right joystick runs the dome.
I'm looking into adding more features to the joysticks by holding on of the other buttons.
