Tamiya Sumo Wrestler Robot w/Wind Up Generator
Item No: 71123 - Educational Robocraft Series No.23
You've Got the Power
This wind-up generator set allows you to create electricity to power your Sumo wrestler robot. You create your own hydro-electricity by turning the generator's handle which puts the electricity producing motor into action. Through this simple action you create ample electricity to power your robot, therefore no batteries are required! The sumo wrestler robot moves and pushes when the generators crank is being turned. In addition to the easy assembling, the generator unit and the robot can be securely attached with connectors.
The generator unit has a gear ratio of 38.2 : 1. Robot walking speed is determined by winding speed. Generator produces approximately 2.5V (no load).
Grips attached to the legs allow the robot to adequately move.
The movement of the crank shaft is conveyed to the link rods which produce the arm's push and shove actions.
Forwards and reverse walking actions are controlled by which direction the generator's handle is turned. With slow turning your robot moves slowly, fast turning your robot moves quickly.
You can have a lot of fun setting your sumo wrestler robot on a round ring and wrestling other robots.
