Tamiya presents its next Robocraft Series item, the 4-leg walking-type Mechanical Giraffe. Motor rotating power is transferred to the legs via crank plates to make the Giraffe walk. The long neck and legs, which have been specially molded to replicate the unique motifs of the actual giraffe, and body on which the gearbox is mounted employ transparent-colored parts, giving the giraffe a funky look. Reverse switch is also transparent, giving you a peek at the giraffe's internal mechanisms. Assembly is very simple with use of screws and snap-lock parts.
Run on flat, smooth surfaces. Avoid running over slopes, on bumpy roads or on long-haired carpet. The relaxed, long-legged walking style of the mechanical giraffe will provide hours of fun!
When walking slowly, it also uses its front legs (just like they do down under) and when running quickly, it uses its tail for balance.
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.
This is a larger IG32 gear motor robot that utilizes three omni-wheels to vector it in any direction. By changing the speeds and directions of the motors the robot can drive in any direction without needing to turn. Customized version of TP-253-003.
This is a 1.75" x 1.75" x .125" thick aluminum plate designed to mount our IG42 motors. It is used in our IG42 Heavy Duty Robot Platform.
