First I gotta say in my "personal" opinion..
I REALLY love the appearance of RQ & RB..
cuz..you know.. they don't pretend to be like a livin creature.
They just are what they are..a ROBOT.

So the thing is.. I'd really love to get both,but for now I just have to choose one.

And I'm gettin confused.

My mind is more to RQ(since it looks more flexible and the appearance and the 14feet 'scan' thingy).. But RB's features like 'alarm' and by watching the DEMO video
where it actually follows the hand when you move in front of it..looks so cool.
And I'm really hopin that when I get one of these two..it'll get along with my cat.

So I need some advice. Which one would you suggest?

the RoboQuad or the RoboBoa?
(I read enough reviews..I need to here some personal exp. it would help me out a lot:)

Damn the expense

RoboQuad for me, You could alway add those features with a mod if you into that. GWJax

GWJax, To Hack and make mods on robots is a life style and comes natural and not by choice. If a robot has a screw to open it then it must be opened!

Thanx for your advice. I think I am actually gonna go for RQ.
The Boa still looks like a proto-type to me.

Anyways~  I have to say I am really into modding but I'm not good at it.
So you know I really would like get some help here :)
And I found this solar panel and am still thinkin if I could use it for something.
Any good Ideas?

Damn the expense

RQ for me he is really cool.  Has Roboboa come out yet?  He is not on the Wow Wee website.

Not yet a mainline product though it's out in several countries already. Best tip I can give is to have the salesperson demo both to you & try both out yourself as well before deciding. Usually at that point your gut will tell you which to go for :)

When you get you Quad and need help just let me know and i'll do what I can to help. If I were you I would start of with the LED mod first for the quad Roboseipian-mems8 really has a great article for this and I have a battery monitor article that includes adding a circuit to the Quad. You can free form the circuit or board it like I did.

What is you level of electronics and soldering? So myself and others in the community can help you make the mods you want at the ease of your experince in electronics. GWJax

Thx y'all for those advices. They're already sellin them here in korea..
but they never let you try out before you buy..shame.

and Mr. GW I already saw the articels about the LED from Mr.Mem8 and your battery monitor.
I think those articles were really awsome and helpful. The LED mod is the one I'm gonna 
get my hands on as soon as the RQ arrives.

I dunno if I even got a elec. level..I'm quite familiar with the electronics on a computer
but actually never tried robots before..so this is gonna be a whole new exp. to me. 

Damn the expense

Bender, Welcome to the robot community and we all will help you in any way we can. All you have to do is ask. I'm glade your doing mems8 first this is really a neat mod for extra color. And this will help you to become a good or even a great modder. Good luck and remember help is only a question away. GWJax

Ps also when Robo BG's article comes out, I'll have to try it.

January 28, 2008 7:46 PM

Well, I have a Roboquad, want a Roboboa & an RSV2, and think their all really cool. But, its your choice.

Bender Has already bough the Quad and very excited about it. I have the RSV2 but had to do a lot of rewiring on it because of bad wires. But I love it now. and the Quad is my fav. though. I leave all screws out of him but a few because he is my testing platform for enhancements. GWJax

I guess If you want to call me that. LOL I just love to help people out including my self by enhancing the quad to my liking or to theirs. My quad has wires comming out of his head right now. I'm trying to bypass the IR RX to control it with a Basic Stamp2 but I may need the BS2sx for this because it has a faster response rate @ 0.8ms "or is it 0.08ms, I'll have to check this again" verses 1.0ms.
