Kicking a ball:

Kicking  a ball

The kicking action runs the knee/hip servos at full speed, instead of slow smoothly interpolated sweeps like used in walking/ leaning

E.g.
CODE: SELECT ALL
Servo.hip = 90
Servo.hip= 140

vs

CODE: SELECT ALL
For sweep in range (90, 140):
Servo.hip = sweep
time.sleep (0.1)

Here’s a quick vid of it falling over when the battery pack detached, causing it to lose balance:
