R2-IQ: Parts Received

Build Day 7:

I received two boxes of parts today for my R2-IQ build.  One was 11 lbs, and the other was 22 lbs.  

After a bit of sorting and counting, I verified that the shipment included everything I was expecting.

The only real new parts (for me) are the Mecanum wheels, which I plan to use as the main drive wheel[s] on the front (third) leg.  Hopefully, with two opposite-direction wheels mounted together, it should act like a powered caster wheel that can drive any direction.  I still have to work out the exact size of the feet/wheels. 

Tonight I'll start snapping panels together and get a mockup of the body and really start to see how it will look.
