The Robot which Moves with a Spring in its Step!
This is an assembly kit of a model which uses two springy "arms" to bounce its way energetically forward over small undulations and steps, as well as flat ground. A righting post on the front allows the robot to turn over if it flips over onto its back, while an under guard made from the same material as the arms cushions landings and protects the gearbox. Rear bars ensure that the model springs in a stable manner, and changing their alignment can make the model turn. Includes everything needed for easy snap-fit/screw-together assembly, with simple wiring required to complete the model.

Change the Robot's Direction!
Positioning one of each of the rear bars upwards and downwards influences the direction the robot takes. When the right bar is upwards and the left down, the model moves to the right and vice versa. What's more, by changing the gearbox and arm attachment directions like so, the model moves forward using a crawling motion.
