Everything is finished..

Not really, you need to hook up the shell to the robot.

To connect the shell to the robot, you can glue it directly to the battery holder, or you can use magnets; glue one inside the lid and another in a mathcing position on the battery holder.

I have switched the yellow tape with black to make it nicer. I have also painted the antenna black for aesthetic .

Congratulations, your beetle robot is done!

Dude i have not evin built my bot yet and i want 2 build another! I just want to know if the spdt switch is the same as a spdt microswitch? I'm from south africa and its not as easy to get the right parts, I have built the most useless machine EVER! and since then have been searching for another robotic project and now I found the best , thanks!!!

haha Thanks!
hello everyone and robomaniac
i wanted to know that is it neccassery to half the voltage if yes why
can solder it under inside where battery is (with batery)
why motors should be 1,5v not 3 plzz tell

ok look maybe it would help if you understood what happens, if you put the two motors hooked up to one battery, youll get a really slow motion, because the battery is beng cut to half its voltage being used. but if you put a second battery, youll even out the Current and Voltage being put. study a bit of DC Vol 1, that should help.
