Inchie

Introduction: Inchie

About: I'm dude who loves to rock! pretty ordinary at that.

An amusing, three-legged robot named 'Inchie'. Feel free to copy or change him. I don't care if you 'republish' him. Please be patient with the movie. It takes a while to load after you click on it.

Step 1: Step 1

Make three. These are the legs.

Step 2: Step 2

Make the... well, I don't know what it's called. If you don't have this type of engine(yes, you need an engine for this to work) I'm sure you can figure out a way to put a different one on it.

Step 3: Step 3

Put it all together. Attach the red connecter thingies on the thing whose name is unknown to the blue rods on the legs. Turn left for best results.(Due to the way the motor isn't balanced. You can stand it up the way I have it, or you can lay it down so the K'NEX logo on the motor faces up. It works both ways.

    Oh, you have the gray motor. try my other design. The gray motor is fast, but gutless, it has no strength. the purple motor is slower, and stronger. Just click on my picture, and you can see the other model.

    You could really fix this up. You could include how many parts needed and much more through pictures.

    He put 'much more through' and I was asking if he meant thorough. You can tell if someone is replying to someone other than you because their comment is staggered.
