SES Electronics mount
Pan/Tilt assembly for head
2x RC shock assemblies
Traxxis steering blocks
Various standoffs/hardware
6 HRS 5990 servos [ Shoulder and elbow ]

7.2v NiMh 2800mAh Battery- Gearhead motors for drivetrain
6.0v NiMh 2800mAh Battery- Servos/SSC-32
9.6v NiMh 4200mAh Battery- Pico-ITX

SSC-32 Servo Controller
Sabertooth 2x5 Motor Controller
VIA EPIA PX1000G Pico-ITX Mainboard w/ C7 1ghz cpu
1gb DDR2-667
60w Pico-PSU
120gb sata 2.5" laptop hard drive
2x 640x480 VGA webcams
USB 802.11g wifi adapter

Windows XP Pro- Stipped down using nLite
SEQ SSC-32 Sequencer

I have made a small change in as much that I will be installing a solid state 16gb hdd.

I have ordered most of my parts for this project now and should get them in the next two weeks, So I am looking forward to this project. I have to thank Andrew for ALL his help in acquiring the ITX and some other accessories for this project, Also for his permission to replicate this design.

 Here is a video of Andrews J5

I now have my Parts for my J5, They arrived a few days ago and I have laid them out so you can see just how many parts there are to this moddified kit. Enjoy.

Here are a few pics before I open them up, I am looking forward to this project in conjunction with Tyberius's help.

Most parts Except the ITX PC components, These coming soon.

There are some parts that may not be used, But purchased them just in case I do.
More to come as I start building this project.

I have laid out the parts to look at and peruse through and get used to what they are and where they go.
Also note there are NO pico ITX parts shown here, These are being sent to me by Tyberious soon.

J5's Track and base parts.

ER1 in the background.

7 HR5990 servos top back row.

I am supposed to finish Wall-E first before I start this project, but the suspense is killing me
so I may have to do both at the same time.

All components for the track system.

Lexan sides and alloy blocks.

Alloy blocks bolted to Lexan.

Stand off's screwed to lexan.

!2v motors installed 50:1 ratio.

Alloy hubs.

Hubs attached to motor.

Sprockets with bearings attached.

4 Sprockets for drive system.

Sprockets and bearings.

Sprockets attached.

Track sides now together.

Tread components, These were pretty easy to assemble.

Assembled track.

Both tracks now assembled.

Tracks now laid over the side plate housings.

Lexan base and stand off's.

Top lexan sheet added.

Base fitted between the track sides.

Hitec servo programmer and HR5990 Digital servo, These are being used for the upper shoulder joints and elbows. This programmer is handy for testing each servo when setting up the joints.

Rotation base for J5. The 5 plastic balls need to be put on 400 wet n dry on a flat surface and a flat board on top of the balls and moved in a cirular motion to take any high points of the balls.

Plastic balls with pins inserted.

Plastic balls inserted into their recessed housings.

Hitec servo controller testing the rotational base.

Rotational components that fit on top of the base disc.

As above.

Bracket fitted to disc.
