I would like to see that go in where I could not, any video of tight spots (lack of clearance)?
Did you do testing on different types of chassis before settling on the format you did? Named after a famous Marvel character, I believe.

We tried many. The crawl space seen here was inaccessible due to the access size.

Yes, we will get a tighter space video.

Pretty soon, I won't fit in any crawlspace! Won't have to, won't need to; won't.

Materials costs alone on this machine is well in excess of $1000.

You'll notice in the video how the camera can turn and pivot to any angle- and the bot doesn't get caught on anything on the floor. We have tested it over 6" pipes, loose wires, very steep and rough terrain...we even put it in a space no human could go underneath the stage at #PUC3 where it made its debut in front of a live audience of hundreds of inspectors.

Nothing else like it.

You can make a cheap version if you want, if you're an experienced hobbyist in may be fun.

That's officially awesome! In Arizona it would be great just to be sure the area was clear of dangerous critters before entering, but then again, why enter? Really cool.

Maybe to some inspectors... clearly workers or tradespeople have been down there before, based on the video.
The opening is small but accessible, and once inside the headroom in there is generous compared to the really cramped ones.

Yesterday I got a call letting me know it is built and ready to ship, However they are still waiting on 1 thing. They asked if I wanted what was done or if I wanted to wait another couple weeks. Depending when you get your call, you may have it before then.

Say the word and I can ship it right now, less the case and top. The tops are about done and then the cases have to be cut to fit the tops.

I will eat the shipping costs to ship separately later and you can have right now sir.

You are a true Gent! Please ship away - I'm showing this thing off to 700 realtors on Jan. 8th and I need to practice not looking up dresses.
