Buster Robot ® Repairs and Internals
Got a new toy robot, and it's a Buster. Here is the general rundown at The Old Robot's Web Site. Buster was working except for it could not close it's arms. Another issue was that it takes 6C cells. Some pics of the dissasembly and repair.
I took the Buster robot apart and cut out the battery compartment to hold a 7.2v rc battery pack, and added a standard connector for it. Disassembled the the arm unit and found that one of the posts for a gear in the gear box had broken. Was able to fix that with some 3M potting compound. Even fixed the arm does not have much clamping force and cannot lift much without popping the clutch.
