Take control of your insect

Now you can control where your robot will go. Thanks to a 2-channel remote control, you can make your mechanical insect move forward/backward or make it turn to the left and to the right

Everything needed to assemble your model is included. The kit features 2 gearboxes, one for each set of legs. The remote-control circuit is pre-wired to the motor and the gearboxes are pre-assembled to achieve ease of assembly.
Two gearboxes for liberty of movement - The Mechanical Insect is equipped with two gearboxes, one that controls the right hand side legs and one that controls the left hand side legs. While working in the same direction, the gearboxes allow your robot to move forward and backward. While working in opposite directions, the gearboxes allow your robot to turn right/left.

Two-stick remote control - The remote-control allows you to control the two gearboxes. Each lever controls one gearbox. After some practice, you will be able to make your insect go anywhere you want.

Goals and ball - In order to offer you the possibility to play soccer with friends, the kit includes a ball and parts to build goals. Stickers with numbers are also part of the set so you can organize a full competition.

Let's play soccer with friends - To play soccer, you just need to make a rounded field with fences and draw lines on it. Then take two Mechanical Insects as players and you are ready to start. By pushing the ball with the legs of your robot, you can dribble and score goals.
