1st Upgrade

The square 4x3 inch aluminum tube has arrived and I've already started measureing
and cutting.
I've been worried about my A&A Foot Motor Holders not being able to hold R2 when he makes a turn, So this is going to change.
The tubing has a 1/8 inch wall and I plan to only cut away what is needed.
I will also add some additional bracing inside the tube.
I need to stop at the shop and pick up some aluminum bathroom partition mounts to make the channel where the ankle fits.
More to come.

Finally a Post

Hey Guys,
I've been very busy these last few months and I'm waiting on parts now.
I have many new ideas for R2 and as soon as the new scooter motors and the
aluminum channel arrives, I will be rebuilding R2's foot motors.
The A&A motor holders are OK for a light weight droid but since R2 is gaining
weight I wanted something stronger.
So, Stay tuned for the improvements.
