Jointed Arm Stilt Video Tutorial [Apr. 16th, 2011|10:10 am]
Four legs are good!

Update: I also added some elastic to the backs of each arm so that the legs pop up more. There's a comparison video in my videos too, though it's not so important that I feel like getting the link. =P

Hey there! Just wanted to post the link to my video tutorial about how I made my jointed arm stilts. I hope you find it useful. =)




Also, here is the video of me walking around. I didn't have the feet attached so I'm walking kind of awkwardly, not trying to put too much weight on them or having the feet fly off. Once they are attached and finished then I will be more comfortable putting a little weight on them (thereby straightening my back. If you notice it's a little arched in the video).
Anyway, here is that too.

Very useful vids, thanks a ton. ^_^b I understand why many quadsuit makers don't often share their tricks of the trade for business reasons but I'm glad to see someone contributing back to the community and helping it be more available for everyone (or at least us not-so-mechanically-inclined folks). Much appreciated!
