Solar Spider


I was doing lots of 1381 solarengine, and since the 1381 can’t be found in local electronic shops here, I decided to build a fled one. I have picked the FRED circuit, as it is the one with the highest performance among the fled engines.
I have bought 2x 1.5 v solar cells. (as you need minimum 3V to run a solarengine)
2 little pager motors at the end of the back legs are used as the muscles.
The 2 red fled (this is why the circuit is called Fred =) ) are the eyes and the voltage pumpers of the solarengine.
Here is the result;
Isn’t it cute? ^_^

Here is the circuit, taken from solarbotics.net;
And here are some photos of the free-formed FRED.
