The little guy is assembled and calibrated. Ran WriteInstinct a couple times to make sure it took. Running a skill from the serial monitor or from the remote simply won't work, other than calibration mode. The servos jerk a bit and come to a quick stop. What could be wrong? I can manually move the servos from the serial monitor so the installation looks good.

@Rongzhong Li reloaded all software and now getting some movement! Woo hoo!
@Rongzhong Li another point is that when I turn it on it goes to the calibration pose. From the code it appears it should go to the rest pose, which I assume is with legs folded down to the floor.
@Rongzhong Li of course I entered the appropriate number of "Y"s at the prompt and uploaded the full sketch. My serial monitor is obviously working because I went through the calibration and saved settings. I know everything is wired properly because I can move every motor. The only skill that works is the return to the calibration state.
It's as if the other skills are terminated shortly after starting to run. Before I really start reading your code, I thought you could point me to what would be causing that behavior. Otherwise there could be a problem with my board.
The user manual is at docs.petoi.com.
After you upload WriteInstinct.ino, have you opened the serial monitor and entered "Y" after the prompts? Have you set up the serial monitor as "no line ending" and baud rate 115200? After that, you need to upload OpenCat.ino for the functional demo.
Do you have a screenshot or video to show the behavior?
