Building the quadruped platform

You'll first need some parts, so you can build your quadruped robot. There are several kit possibilities out there, including at http://www.trossenrobotics.com/p/PhantomX-AX-12-Quadruped.aspx. However, such kits can be expensive; so for this example, you'll create your own kit using a set of Lynxmotion parts. These are available with several on-line retailers, such as http://www.robotshop.com/. To build this quadruped, you'll need two sets each of the two leg parts and then one set each of a body. Here are the parts with their Robotshop part number:
