The microbug was a good challenge for a third project. I have done this a few times now, because there is always one flaw or another. Either one motor was too weak and it would spin too much or one of the sensors was faulty or one of the knobs didn’t work.



Testing it out — the sensors work on THIS one, on others not so much.

This kit is not as high quality as other velleman kits. It has been replaced in their catalog by two other kits. I will try those too.
