How it works

Motor rotation is transferred to the legs via crank plates and linkage rods, causing the Mechanical Ostrich to walk at one of two selectable speeds. The body is made from a transparent purple ABS resin that allows you to see all of the motors, gears, and cranks in action. The battery and motor are positioned for optimum weight balance.
