Lotus is a four legged Walker using two modified standard 
Hobbico servos.  check out my details of Lotus at:

Features of the bot include:
*Speed of 1 foot per 2 seconds! (on a fresh charge) 
*Tactile Sensors/ Reverses for 10 secs 
*Flashing LEDs 
*Chirps When In Reverse (really cool!) 
*Never ever tips over! 

Lotus is based on the "complete walker circuit" found at:

Athough I made a few changes! 
Parts used were:
Standard Aluminum Angle bar, electronic components found at radio 
shack, 1/8" welding rod for legs, 4.8V NiCd recharchable

Cost:about $40
