I thought I'd post a short tread with a link and video of my Moebius B-9 robot build. I usually post at hobbytalk but the site has not worked right since it was sold about a year ago, so I'm going to move over here from now on. I love this kit and think Moebius did a great job engineering the layout. I took my time, about a year and a half, but this was a "Holly Grail" kit for me, so I wanted to do it right. Rather than repost from hobbytalk, I hope you'll take the time to look over my thread there.

Your work is really amazing. Both inspiring and frustration inducing (because I can't match it) A wonderful accomplishment. Hey, I wonder if playing around with white balance on your video camera might help the chest lights look better on "film." You can also pose the robot at a 3/4 angle to the camera so that the chest lights don't shine directly into the lens -- if you just want to pose the model for a moment. Finally, and this is a question I've had for years, is there any way someone might dampen or eliminate the servo "grind" sound when they move? Do silent servos exist? Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for the kind words Alan..... With my good camera at work, I just wanting to show that the old boy is done, sorry for the poor video quality, but it gets the point across, I hope.
