    A: Hi Erwin, We are in the process of getting the items cut and kitted together ready for dispatch. Currently we estimate that they should be in stock either later this week or early next week. Order can be placed and it will enter a pre-order state so you would then receive stock before it is available on the shelf.

    A: Hi, The issue you will face is that due to the way the micro:bit is designed it is limited to being able to run 3 Servos at any one time. So you could alter kit to run the Klaw but this would mean the LED strip would not run as this is run as if it were a servo extension. The way to cut out the LEDs and add the extra servo would be to look at the servo lite board and on the back should be a point which has cut track for servo 3 and solder link for servo 3. You would need to cut that track and solder that link so that you could run the third servo from that point. With the extra LEDs add on you would be best off soldering a Male Pin header to the PXL extension again found on the back of the servo lite board and then connecting the LEDs to this. I hope this helps. Cullen

    A: Hi John, This isn’t something that has been mentioned before so it is a little odd. However there may be a couple of reasons for this. Firstly can I check that the servo is being powered from a supply of 3-6V’s? Anything higher and that is likely to be the issue. Secondly, can the Klaw move freely once built without and power on the servo? Third, can the servo rotate when the Klaw isn’t attached, and does it get hot at this point? If you drop an email through to support@kitronik.co.uk we may be able to help further.

    A: Hi Rufus, you could modify the line following buggy plate to allow for the Klaw to be fitted onto it.
