#318 parts for robotics hacking in Valencia
Closed: Fixed None Opened 9 years ago by yn1v.

= phenomenon =

We have a hacking planned and we need some parts that are not easily available. We have come with a list of parts and selected those that will be necessary or better to be purchased on the USA and brought to FUDCon. The list can be found at the following link:
[https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Hacking_Robotic_Valencia_2012#Shopping_List Shopping List]

= reason =

As stated availability in LATAM is difficult and if found prices are several times higher.

= recommendation =

To assign one person with purchase authority and travelling to FUDCon to buy those items and carry them to Valencia.


Am I correct in understanding that I need to purchase only the webcams and servos?

Also:
Is this servo: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXH288
the same as the one listed in the wiki page?

I would prefer to not purchase from China since the shipping can take up to a month, and additionally, these are cheaper. :)

If I need to bring other items on the list (I am looking at only the ones that need to come from the US), or others still are unpurchased, let me know.

Yes that is correct.

Yes those are the same. You can purchase those instead.

I will ping Valentin Basel to check, but I as far as I know he already got the rest ready.

Okay, webcams and servos ordered. Hopefully I have a big enough suitcase for this stuff. :)
