I came up with a few enhancements for the Hexbug Balancer

I wrote up a document that shows some of the improvements I made to the Hexbug Balancer. I also shared a few thoughts I had about its operation.Hexbug Balancer Improvements.pdf (5.3 MB)

Oops. I made reference to an inverted pyramid design. It is not a pyramid, I should have said Inverted Pendulum. My bad…

Here is a good reference for how the inverted pendulum design works:

Hello Ernest,
These are some great upgrades/enhancements to the Hexbug Balancer. I’m the same way; if something doesn’t feel right or fit, then I’m experimenting and rebuilding. Wonderful work and thank you for sharing your ideas.
Best regards,
