Robot not moving

  • Make sure pinion gear is pushed onto the motor pin until it is flush with a flat surface. This is important as the pinion gear will not engage the other gears if not pushed in all the way.
  • Make sure the burrs are completely cut off before assembling.
  • Make sure the red & black connectors are inserted correctly.
  • Take robot outside under direct hot sunlight or use a 100W halogen light. 
  • Make sure battery is fully inserted and fully charged.

Robot moving only a few seconds (battery dies quickly)

  • If there is too much friction in the gear box the battery will drain quickly and you will not get a lot of movement from the robot. 
  • This may be caused by not removing the burrs on on B8

  • Make sure all the burrs are shaven off to insure the smoothest movement.

 Make sure to check the placing of all other gears in the gear box.
