To make the shell, you can use any sort of plastic container. The dark green is a peanut butter cap and the transparent green is from a gel container.

I decided to use the transparent cap to make my shell. I then cut out the cap to make room for the motors and the switches.

hello, did you look at the pictures in step 16?

Look where the switch is place

There is a picture where there is a single wire

then the second picture is the same angle but with a switch that is in the middle of the wire


This mean you cut the wire in 2 and solder a switch to the wire you just cut.

The "third connection wire" is the wire that you cut.
Look closelly at ALL the pictures.

That is it!
its good but step 16 is not clear
