I vaguley remember doing a few interviews at C4, but never thought I’d see any of them. But today I found one on Youtube.
I forgot to blog this back in September, but here it is now for your perusal.
Here’s a list of photo albums from various builders at C4 – Updated 7/12/07
Official SW Blog R2 Builders Flickr Pool
SW Action News Flickr C4 Pool (not an R2 Builders gallery but lots of great droid photos)
Here’s a few more photos from C4. First up the group picture after the droid parade.
Here’s a video of the parade itself
Next up, me in the replica Tantive IV hallway
and finally me driving R2 around
I’m back from C4 and R2 performed really well.
I was able to finish the basic structure, the dome, the electronics and he was fully RC’d and running around most all of the days at the con. As you can see I also fixed the dome and got most of the blue painting done. Battery life was excellent and the Roboteq AX3500 speed controller / NPC-2212 combo worked out great. I was in both races and the little guy far exceeded my expectations of what I thought I’d be able to do at C4.
This is me driving back to the hotel on the last evening ready for transport back to the Bay Area – Yes I drove him home 1/2 mile to the hotel without incident.
I still need to sort through my photos and upload them and post a full write-up, but wanted to post something other than having my dented dome as the top post in the blog 🙂
I also intend on going back and catch up with blog posts on all the building I did before I left.
Got my pass today for Celebration 4 🙂
It only feels like last week that I was posting something similar about C3.
They did a real bad job of laminating it, but I’ll be swapping it for a volunteer pass anyway.
