Two Knex Walkers of mine Answered

Picture of

Here are two knex walking machines of mine. Neither are bad, but both aren't great. I Might post the second one if I can make it better. They are both powered by two Knex Powerpacks. The first video is of the smaller one, and the second and third are the larger one.

You have to save it to your SD card, and give it a name you'll remember, then just do what you would do with a picture, but find where you saved it, and open! simple as.

That second one is great. You'd get a smoother ride if you could connect each leg 90o out of phase with the next, instead of 180o as you have now, then you will have less time between foot-falls, and less up-and-down motion.

That is, if those pieces will let you connect at different angles?
