How it works

Motor rotation is transferred to the legs via crank plates and linkage rods, causing the Mechanical Tiger to walk. The tiger’s stride depends on the crank holes to which the front legs are attached, which means there are four possible strides for you to choose from. Put this together with the two possible gear ratios and you get eight possible speeds. A reverse switch also allows backward movement. The body is made from a transparent yellow ABS resin that allows you to see all of the motors, gears, cranks, and linkage rods in action.


Basic specifications

  • Total length: 155 mm
  • Total weight: 105 g (without batteries)
  • Body material: ABS resin
  • Gearbox, motor, control switch, and decorative stickers are included.
  • 2 possible gear ratios coupled with 4 different strides let you choose 8 different speeds.
  • A screwdriver for the assembly is provided.

Note: This is a kit. Assembly requires using a screwdriver and snapping parts together. No soldering is required. Run on flat, smooth surfaces; avoid running over slopes, on bumpy roads, or on thick carpet.
