Walks while swinging its horn to avoid obstacles

This amazing beetle-robot walks with its four legs while swinging its horn. When it bumps into an obstacle, it turns around automatically and will continue walking. Horn, legs and body on which the gearbox is mounted employ transparent-colored parts, giving the beetle a funky look. Reverse switch is also transparent, giving you a peek at the beetle's internal mechanisms. Assembly is very simple with use of screws and snap- lock parts.

All you need included

Assembly is very simple with use of screws and snap-lock parts. Cable ends are rubber capped with cut areas pre-marked for easy wiring.

Walks while swinging its horn

A link rod attached to the front right leg allows the horn to move right and left and when it bumps into an obstacle, the beetle automatically turns to avoid it.

Low speed, high speed, choice between two gearboxes

You can choose between 2 different running speeds. A reverse switch also allows backward movement.
