I just pulled this drive system out of a brand new garage door opener and it fits in the Dave's frame like a glove.
It has a worm gear setup and has built in limit switches.
I was thing about using it to rotate the outer legs, 1 drive on each side.
The only thing is the shaft that goes into the worm gear is kinda large.
Could a adapter be made to reduce this down to a smaller motor shaft?
The assembly looks cheap but it is pretty rugged.

I'm not sure about the cost.
I will find out and let everyone know.
I was hoping that everyone's local Garage Door company would give them away for free. You may have to get a 20.00 gear kit if you get a used housing.
The Opener the gear housing came out of is a Linear 1/2 hp chain drive opener. You may check around and see if you can get a free one.

Well, Old J.C. must be looking out for me.
I got my other Drive system today, It's used to barely worn.
I'll get it mounted and all I'll need then is 2 motors.

LOL, too late I already saw it. I'm not jonesing for 2-3-2.

Besides I got the Jedi system. I just want to be able to do the scream thing like Todd's R2. People love it. So they will love my droid even more.

Oh darn Galadriel speech coming on..... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhfTsXSlFjc)

Is it wrong that I want to get the sound system done & in my R7 before I finish anything else on her?
