The NOMAD is a great product but I wanted it to build a arm for it and with the understanding that it would need to be light weight but strong, compact and relative to the NOMAD's size. This can be done in a few different combinations using servocity parts and this is just the way that I have chosen to do it. Balance would need to be close to the batteries and center mass and fold into position for the arm to hold any weight. This project requires five channels on a RC receiver and a 5volt connection. By my estimate this arm can pick up a total of 10lbs safely and possibly more with this configuration. I also want to add that I am using 4 lipo 5200mah batteries and have moved them to counter balance the system inside the the rovers bay.
