Welcome back Bob! I wish the P2 was more mature so you could jump in. The hardware is there but SPIN2 is a little way off, maybe just weeks. You can sure benefit from some of the new instructions in the P2.

I was worried that you where pinched and held hostage by your robot in your own basement, and you just did a road trip!
But the first thing you should do is try out Eric's Flexgui and his SPIN 1.5. It does not just work for the P2 it works with the P1 also.
And it compiles P1 SPIN to P1 PASM (LMM) thus is WAY faster then the SPIN interpreter, but need more space also, SPIN byte code is compact, PASM (LMM) needs more HUB.
But your P1 LEG controller might gain a lot of speed/reaction response if compiled by flexgui/fastspin as long as they still fit into HUB.
The good thing would be that you can just use the code you have and gain speed, instead of switching the MC and rewrite everything.

I seem to sound like a fan-boy, but what Eric has done there is simply mind boggling. He seems to have the passion and skills you have for machining things just using it in his software forge...
...the sheer AMOUNT of work Eric did put out for the P2, makes me wonder how he does it.

If you know that the value you may not even need an ADC, just a voltage divider that will change state on a pin. Contact/no contact scenario, without any superfluous info or code.

Amazing progress, DiverBob! You are the most tireless builder I have ever "met" and your persistence is incredible. Keep up the excellent work!

I was looking at your battery wrapping, not sure, but you might have a heat build up problem.
Out of curiosity, how much does your battery pack weight? So, you have a 14.4V 28Ah battery back, what kind of voltage regulators will you be using?
