VertiGo - a wall climbing robot

Update: added a new longer video and a high resolution image of the robot

Highres Image

How cool is this? I want to build one.. I have some drones laying around and a 3D printed version of this where I use the parts from a drone is my next project. Need all your good ideas to make it work.. Needs to be light to make it work.

I was thinking that I 3D print the frame and wheels to make it as light as possible. And then I use parts from the drone to add motors. Problem will probably be weight so maybe I need bigger motors and propellers :)

Any ideas are welcome. I think it would be awesome if we could make this work with only cheap parts from Banggood or similar.

That's a very cool robot. Do you want to make it just for the fun of building it or do you have any specific use (even if for fun) in mind?

I just want to try building it. Have been thinking about ways of using drone technology for something else. To me that's more fun than flying, but I'm weird. Have to finish The Beest before I try to make this.. Not sure if it's possible with my skill level at all! Hehe!
