Description: Upgraded my Phoenix Spider from Bot Board II to BotBoarduino.
seems to be running good but might need some servo end points set, tried some of the several walking, shift and rotate modes but have yet to get to try the single leg or GP player modes.
Had some trouble at first doing the leg calibration , I installed the botboarduino using the phoenix botboarduino guide from the lynxmotion website. everything went good untel step7 the Hold the "A" butten use the Hexapod Calibration Program .NEVER worked! all I ever got was a "not connected" from that little program.
anyway long story short, I ended up using the Phoenix Botboard II guide without the BotBoard II a serial connection and LynxTerm and followed the steps to do the servo or leg calibration. worked great!
when all done calibrating just had to remove the 2 DB9 RX and TX jumpers and plug the cable back in on RX TX I also left the SSC-32 baud rate at how it was set for the BotBoarduino and just change it in lynxterm settings instead. worked for me anyways, don't know what the deal is with the Hexapod Calibration Program from the BotBoarduino guide.
PS2 wireless controller (lynxmotion).
The Complete H3/H3-R tutorial (BotBoarduino).
The Complete Phoenix Tutorial (Bot Board II) for servo calibration.
ALPHA1A Firmware in SSC-32.
1 serial to usb connector.
Arduino for windows.
Lynxmotion-3DOF-4DOF-Hex-5ed5421 it's the "BotBoarduino_CH3R_PS2" code for the arduino.
SSC-32 Baud rate to it's what the BotBoarduino uses and removed VL=VS jumper.
botBoarduino removed VS=VL jumper as well as JA JB JC jumpers.
SSC-32 TX and RX connected to Botboarduino red on 12 black and white on 13.
connected the PS2 to the BotBoarduino on "6789".
Hope this is useful to someone!
