Introduction: Stuart W.R. V4.0

Picture of Stuart W.R. V4.0

Check my NB-4 Pistol too!

After a period of almost more then a year of improving, testing, etc..
He is finally is here!
Stuart, Version 4.0.
A fun little concept i got from watching some videos of walking machines on Youtube (God bless Youtube), and his first version couldn't even carry it's own weight, it had to be suspended from a rope in order to walk.
I soon found the solution to this problem, because the gears have to always make contact with each other, but they sometimes slipped, so i put a small bar to keep the pressure on the gears so they weren't physically able to slip, one problem solved. Next problem, the legs.
In the begin those were very fragile and were most likely to break under the force in which the body came down with.
This one was easy, just put on smaller legs.
Only one problem to go.
The leg supports:
They kept breaking and making him basically "break his leg", which made him really unbalanced.
Again easy.
Make the bar which kept the pressure on the gears to hold up the leg supporters..
And so, the V4.0 (4.0 already?! Wow!) was born, and finally cleared of bugs.
Thats basically this creations story and now;
I'll say some pros and no's:

-Low part use.
-Fun to watch.
-Sturdy (survived a drop from my desk which is 3 feet high).
-Will keep your lil' bro or sis busy for hours if you need to babysit (lol).

-Hard to time the legs when building (it will look retarded with a wrong timing).
-Lots of grey and light blue spacers needed.

You like it?
Lets build then!

Step 1: Leg Support

This is one of the leg supports, build it 6x.

Step 2: Leg

This is one of the legs.
Again, build this 6x.

Step 3: "Roof"

The top of the frame, without this part, the chassis will be alot less sturdy.

Step 4: Sides

The sides, not much more.

Step 5: Chassis (Down Frame)

This is the frame which hold the legs, engine and the gears in place.

Step 6: Assembly: Sides + Chassis

Step 10: You're Done!

Well, you can finally have your own robot-ish thingy.
Have freaking much fun!

All motors that look like that blue one works and the blue rod is a gray rod and it can also move sideways and upside down

dracorabbid (author)2012-02-04

danbaha (author)2010-08-09

rybubbles (author)2009-09-27

its working suckish for me

Skreetsha (author)rybubbles2009-09-28

Did you build everything exactly the same? Did you time the legs right? Is the engine low on batteries? Check that first before you say it sucks next time, ok?

Hiyadudez (author)Skreetsha2009-11-12

He didnt say it sucks, he said that its working sucksh for him.

Skreetsha (author)Hiyadudez2009-11-16

Yes i know that, but i don't like it when people say it's suckish or only for them when they don't even give the reason why.
Because then i could help them but i could not otherwise.

Hiyadudez (author)Skreetsha2009-11-16

Ah, ok.

Mr. Muggle (author)2009-10-17

I made this but it doesnt walk straight!!!! its wobbly! plz help!!

Skreetsha (author)Tmbo179322009-09-19

Did you time the legs right? 3 legs go up, 3 stay down, the legs land, the other 3 go up. Thats how it's supposed to go.

Tmbo17932 (author)Skreetsha2009-09-19

ok thnx!

Skreetsha (author)Tmbo179322009-09-19

You're welcome

knexsniper1 (author)Skreetsha2009-09-06

fo sho!!

Skreetsha (author)knexsniper12009-09-06

Lol, go to Youtube and search K'nex Creations By Viccie.B1993. You see the V2 walking there, but it isn't any different from walking patterns then the V3 and 4. I wrecked it already, now working on a assault rifle, y'know, give the AR-V3 some competition :P

DJ Radio (author)Skreetsha2009-09-14

you liked it that much lol. If you make it regular loading, you won't be able to beat my gun.

Skreetsha (author)DJ Radio2009-09-15


DJ Radio (author)Skreetsha2009-09-14

The AR-4 v3 already has enough competition....

knexsniper1 (author)Skreetsha2009-09-06

ok, ill check it out!

knexguy (author)2009-09-09

Now to make a caterpillar! A trekker motor should drive the whole thing, I might try it.

Skreetsha (author)knexguy2009-09-09

D'you even know what trekker means in Dutch?
Makes sense now, ey?
Btw, catterpillar walker = guarenteed win for the K'nexers here.

DJ Radio (author)Skreetsha2009-09-13

You better not use ball joints, Knex_Pls made a caterpillar once, and it used a whole bunch of ball joints.

Skreetsha (author)DJ Radio2009-09-13

Lol, just make a Stuart with more legs and a different timing on the legs, duh.. :P

Electroinnovation (author)2009-09-10

Pretty cool. Can you post a video by any chance?

Theres already one on Youtube where you see the V2 walking. I didn't make one with this one ;) It's called "Knex Creations By Viccie.B1993"

I didnt realize this b4 but im guessing Viccie's ur name and B1993 means you were born in 1993 so your 15/16 now. Am i right?

Lol, a guy named Viccie? No way, my name is Victor. XD And B stands for Bischoff which is my last name, and 1993 is my birth year. :P

DJ Radio (author)Skreetsha2009-09-13

Now tell him to bisch off. You will get it only when you say it out loud.

Skreetsha (author)DJ Radio2009-09-13

The Jamalam (author)2009-09-12

Skreetsha (author)The Jamalam2009-09-13

Skreetsha (author)The Jamalam2009-09-13
