Body - Wiring
I'm getting close to having the main body wired. Final hookups for the servos and a few smaller wires to power the 5v systems to go. I also need to figure out the wiring system for the 2-3-2. 

Since my eyes aren't getting younger, I installed four strips to LED lights and wiring them to the 12v bus. They can be turned on by a small toggle switch inside the right frame.

Here are the shoulders and motors for Martyman's 2-3-2 system. Only half of the shoulder parts are in this image. The other half is mounted to the center supports.

I redesigned my dome and utility arm servo mounts. I also needed to redesign the gripper and data arm servo locations due to interference issues with the 2-3-2 system. This wiring is still rough...

This is my removable electronic board. The four LED displays to monitor the power levels of the different power buses. One is for the 12v system and one is for the 5v system. The other two monitor the power levels of the two 6s Lipo battery packs and will sound an alarm so I don't discharge the lipo packs too far. (The servo leads in this image are temporarily attached and will connect to the back of this board)

The electronics board also swings open so you can access the back and work on the 2-3-2 system.

The back of the electronic board. I'm still adding wires...

The challenge of wiring for a 2-3-2 system is keeping the wiring out of the way of the center leg lift. The XT-60 connectors in the upper right of this image connect to the main drive motors.

This is a battery tray I designed to hold my two 6s lipo batteries. The balance plugs are wired to the battery monitors on the mainboard. The switches are there so I can power down the monitors without unplugging the batteries.

Batteries installed. Simple cap head bolt with a printed knob holds it all in place, plus the back cover.
