Lynxmotion R/C Spider Uses PS2 Controller

For those who love everything R/C, this Lynxmotion hexapod kit is pretty
dorktastically awesome. While technically 2 legs short of spider
status, this hexapod has excellent mobility, as 18 servos drive the
legs (featuring 3 degrees of freedom) a foot per second and over
obstacles up to 4" high. Oh, and it's preprogrammed to work with a
2.4Ghz wireless PlayStation 2 compatible controller.

The thing to remember here is that, as a kit, the $750 Lynxmotion BH3-R
doesn't have all the polish of a retail product, but it leaves the
platform open to robot enthusiasts.

Windows software allows you to customize movement over its basic
programming that only supports multi-directional, multi-speed movement
and 360-degree spins.
