K'nex Micro Crawler/Walker

About: I make K'nex guns, specializing in semi-automatic, RBG-Slingshot hybrid systems which i use in most of my guns. Note: I am not responsible in any way for any damage, injury, or death caused by my Instructab...

This is probably not the best one out there but it is probably one of the smallest. It doesn't do much except crawl forward (or backwards). It can climb over some obstacles but not all. It is also easy and fast to make.

    Do you know how to modify it to use a green motor?

    I think that one could easily scale up this design, most of the changes would probably be just exchanging some of the rods for longer ones. As for next time I doubt there will be one. I've become rather inactive when it comes to K'nex and a crawler/walker isn't high up on my things-to-make list.

    You think so? Maybe the next time I make a walker I should give it a face, and a smile. Make my own version of a Wall-e walker ; )

    But they don't have K'nex voice recorder piece, at least not that I know of, and I don't like using non-K'nex stuff in K'nex projects (except rubberbands) : (
