I have decided to model my robot after the nara cricket, the link below is a video of it walking. I choose this bug mainly because I wanted to use a 6 legged insect.

I have been trying to build a six-legged robot and it is getting pretty large, so I may decide to knock it down to four legs. I orginially wanted to use six legs because I thought it would be easier to balance when walking, but now I hope I can manage to do that with just four legs.

Also, I found a site http://www.philohome.com/motors/motorcomp.htm with different motors including the one that is in our kit. This site just tells you about them, but I have also found places to purchase some of them (ranging from $20-30.) If anyone needs motors (or has extra motors) please let me know so we can figure out if we need to place an order asap.
