It looks like the "cleanest" and most "durable" crawler I've seen - Some others have little spindly legs that break off and stuff. Only thing is if your motor is too weak it looks like it won't be able to move the whole body. 4.5 stars tho!

I know, the motor's power is disappointing and it has meant that my full size walking K'nex man may stay stationary for ever more! :(

why dont you get the trekker motor off ebay?

author

you could always add a gearbox to him to give the motor more power, but your knex man will walk like a senior citizen lol
