PicoCat V2 Update Video


Redesign

PicoCat v2 is a complete redesign of the original opensource Opencat project; that is to say each part has been remodelled in Fusion 360 to allow for the different size of servo used. The old model used either the SG90 or the MG90. The DS-929MG is slightly longer than the sg90 and mg90. The only parts not changed are the head assembly parts.

Servo Comparison

You can see the DS-929MG on the left, the MG90 in the middle and SG90 to the right.
