My first of the three Clayton Boyer walking robots, with a Dragon twist in the design. This is a challenging and fun project as long as you go into it with a little patience. Getting the gear train and the legs set up to walk correctly can take some fiddling to get right.

This video is the first walk. which amazingly went without fiddling!! ThenI knocked the darn thing off the bench and something moved so I am still trying to get it reset to where it was!! This video shows it’s first steps alomg the bench.

Your really did an awesome job on the bot, Dan. Makes me want to build more. I still have the Puffer Engine to do. They are fun to build and great conversation pieces.

Dan, that’s pretty cool. I can see more of these in the future. Little motors and such can be found at allelectronics.com and you can just buy 1 of most things.
