This the third in the series of Clayton Boyer’s Robots. This was a real fun adventure building these little “Bots”. There were some challenges, at least for me, but all workable. Good plans and instructions. I had a real good time building them. I emailed a question on this last one and he was quick to respond and very helpful

Short video of the bot.

This is so interesting and it’s a nice and well done project. It also looks like a lot of fun.

That is really cool. I like how the gears are triangles. Ive never seen that, one would think that it would bind up by looking at it but it runs like a champ.

Thanks for the nice comments. The designer of these bots likes gears. The Creepy Bot has a five sided gear working with a square gear. This bot has the triangle gear, and patterns for round gears should you prefer them. Makes it interesting.
