For example, people have expressed they would prefer the top plate to be more of a frame work such as the V4b design, however, the more holes there are.. the more machine time.. the higher the cost.

Sounds so exciting! Coupled with the pBrain, I think your hexapod will be one of the most powerful ones right out of the kit out there...

my comments for things i'd like to see in a kit.
- a version without servos - but including all other electronics and cables
- ability to power the hex with a single high capacity 7.4v lipoly pack
- ability to get it walking quickly - ie userfriendly software interface and included gaits (a mac osx option??)
- RC-like 'switch on and walk' using a PS2 type controller
- hop-ups including your video camera/face recognition kit

There are several aspects of work I've already done that I intend to apply to the p.Brain when it is available and I for one would be willing to share any such extension I create.
One of these is implementing the XBox controller (which is far superior to the PS2 Controller) to currently run my Lexbot.
