VEX2-D2 - Updated!

I made a VEX IQ version of R2D2 a little while back and while it was a lot of fun, it wasn't quite right.  I built it just using the parts I had on hand and as a result it ended up predominantly grey.

See it here -

Cue version 2, in the appropriate blue and white that you would expect from R2-D2 :)

The head is a *little* bit better than V1, but it is still really difficult to do a dome with the VEX IQ parts.

Was wondering if the project build instructions would be available. Wanted to utilize it as a possible club project.

Thank You
