"Hello everyone! I'm Coolios RoboBrrd, and it is time to assemble your RoboBrrd Chassis! Waahahahahacooocooo~~~ Let's goooo!"
In the following steps we will be assembling the RoboBrrd chassis, so you can attach all of the pieces together in the right directions.
Make sure you have hot glue available, as well as some tools such as: screwdriver, snippers, and pliers.
The photos are quite clear, so they should be able to guide you through the build! But don't worry, if not, you can read the step description below. If you get stuck, leave us a question on the forum! Let's get building!
Here are all of the pieces that you will need for assembling your RoboBrrd chassis. Your colours may be different from ours.
If there is a component missing from your bag, feel free to contact us and we can try to help you.
Three servos, four paperclips, two 1" rivets, and two 1/2" rivets:
Plate pieces for the chassis:
More pieces for the chassis:
|2||Wing Arm & Base|
|2||Beak Bridge & Base|
|1||Beak Servo Horn|
|2||Wing Servo Horns|
|2||3D Printed Washers|
|1||Rotational Wedge Piece|
Grab the servo plate and yoke clip.
Orient the servo plate so that the tabs are facing down, and the servo holders are at the top.
Find the marking on the yoke clip that is next to the servo holder.
Insert the yoke clip through the opening of the servo plate. The marking on the yoke clip should be on the right side.
You may want to use hot glue on the servo plate where the yoke clip comes in contact with it. Push the yoke clip through so the indentation touches the servo plate.
Flip the servo plate over. Make sure the yoke clip is flush with the sides. It might require some fidgeting to get it to fit properly.
Note: In some models, the text on the yoke clip will indeed be oriented upside down (our mistake, oops). As long as the servo holder is on the right side, then this is correct.
Grab the back plate. Orient it so the glossy side is facing up, and the little circle tabs are at the top.
Insert the yoke clip into the opening. Similar steps as above.
You may want to use hot glue on the back plate where the yoke clip comes in contact with it.
Push the yoke clip through so the indentation touches the back plate.
Flip the back plate over. Make sure the yoke clip is flush with the sides. It might require some fidgeting to get it to fit properly.
Grab one of the servos, the scotch yoke horn, and yoke piece.
Attach one of the small, white, plastic servo horns to the servo. Position the horn on the servo so it rotates within these boundaries. (see below photos)
Chop the last 2 holes of the servo horns off.
Hot glue the scotch yoke horn to the existing horn.
Move the yoke piece into the yoke clip.
Then, insert the servo through the holder in the yoke clip. The servo horn should go through the yoke piece. The servo horn and wires should be near the back of the holder on the yoke clip.
You should apply hot glue to the spots where the servo contacts the yoke clip. This will secure it in place.
