Remote Control IR Beetle Robot Electronic Kit
• Make a fantastic beetle model that can be controlled by a remote control pad
• Control forwards, back, left and right turning as well as opening and closing the claw
• No need to solder or glue the kit slots together
• Requires eight AA batteries (not included - Order Code L39BF)What can I make with this kit?
Create an amazing beetle robot complete with movement, a working claw and a built-in LED searchlight. You can control the beetle using the infrared remote control. The robot can move forwards, backwards, left and right, as well as being able to open and close its claw. No need to solder or glue - this kit simply clips together.
What is in this kit?
This kit provides a great way to explore mechanics. The beetle contains many different gears and three motors - see how gears interact with each other and how the robot transforms the output from the motors. The claw alone uses two motors, so you can explore how the different movements are generated. With 174 parts, this is a lot of fun to put together. You may require long nosed pliers, diagonal cutters and a screwdriver to assemble this kit.
Can I combine it with others?
Build yourself a fleet of beetles and control them all with the same remote. The remote control has four channels and can direct a different robot beetle. The robot beetle requires four AA batteries in the controller and four AA batteries
per robot (this kit contains one controller and one beetle robot).
