Pack 9 contains issue's 31-34.

Issue 31

Your parts: Servo motor.

Saved parts:
You will be using parts from the previous issues, so be sure to have these to hand before beginning: Right leg assembly, Servo cable 70mm and Neck stand.

The Servo and cable
Remove the servo cover and save the long screws then attach the 70mm servo cable from stage 30 to the servo and replace the cover.

Testing the servo
Take the neck stand and make sure the power pack is turned OFF. Carefully attach the servo cable connected to the servo in Step 3. With the servo connected, switch the power to ON. After the LEDs blink twice, only the 1 LED should light up.

To test the servo, press the TEST/SET switch: the servo’s shaft should rotate 45° to the left, stop, then move back across to 45° to the right. The next step is to set the servo’s ID number, so keep the power on. If the test does not run, refer to the HELP box on page 6 of Issue 8’s Assembly Guide.

In the coming stages,you will again be setting a servo’s ID number using the test board, so re-familiarise yourself with the board’s lights and switches which were first explained in the assembly Guide of Issue 8. These are used to set the ID numbers of the servos. Each time you press the UP switch,the ID number increases by one, and the result is displayed by the two banks of LED lights. The top row reads in tens and the bottom in units. For example, to set the ID to 21, as you will do in this stage, you press UP 20 times. This will light up the 20 LED and the 1 LED. (If you overshoot, press the DOWN switch to take it down one step at a time.) When the ID number is correct, you set it by pressing and holding the TEST/SET switch.

To set the ID number of the right foot servo to 3, press the UP button 2 times. Confirm the setting by checking that the 3 LED is lit, using the UP and DOWN buttons to correct the number if necessary.

Confirm the setting by pressing and holding the TEST/SET button for a few seconds. The 3 light should flash, then go out.Leaving the servo connected, switch the power OFF, then back ON. Only the 1 LED should light up. To check the ID number, press TEST/SET. Now the 3 should light up. Note: It is crucial that all of Robi’s servos have the correct ID numbers, so check thoroughly that you have set the desired number.

Once all is well, switch the power pack OFF, then carefully unplug the servo from the test board. It will retain its setting, ready to fit into Robi’s right leg.

Fitting the Thigh servo
Take the right leg assemble and the servo you just prepared and attach the cable from the leg assembly to the servo. Now pass the unattached cable through the hole at the top of the leg assembly then carefully insert the servo into the thigh making sure you do not pull or pinch the servo cables. Once it is fully seated use the four long screws to fix it in position.

Issue complete store any unused parts in a bag labeled with the stage number .
