The name of our robot is FIER and here is a video of it saying hello to the world.

In this instructable, I will try to show you the basic steps to making your own walking robot for the most bang for your buck.

You may be asking why did I use balsa wood as the body for the robot. The reason I did this was to make the robot as lite weight as possible. In order to make the robot as cheap as possible I had to use the cheapest servos I could find since there is so many needed and because the servos are so cheap they have a low torque and can't handle much weight and in turn, balsa wood. Plus balsa wood is really easy to work with.
