ask for any colour if you like
Nil, just put down in such a way, sorry for the confusion. Should be changed. By the way, some are super caps some are just normal caps.
Will try to incorporate into the videos or do you mean you like to buy one. Just specify in the purchase order when you pay for one....cheers
You need voltage trigger with trigger value 2.4v to 2.6v and below to go forward otherwise the voltage release by the voltage trigger will affect the whiskers. You can actually notice the HEXBUG will try to go forward 3-4 seconds into the release because the voltage has now dropped in time to about 3volts, than 2v than even lower until the lowest threshold voltage reached which shuts out the voltage trigger for releasing.
Its the voltage trigger holding off till about 4.5v how ever if you are using it for the hexbug it should just go backward if you notice you need the lower voltage trigger to go forward. That is way we say to specify your use on our web site. Not to worry it still works. As for suggestions if you use more super caps (6) and change the discharge cap you can even dive a mini spy cam. I try it. Or even portable fish pumps. See our website under diy project express under useful links
Will do in our next set of printings.

There is no reason for the circuit not to work....this will naver happen.
Most common mistakes people make or even with our own techno guys are:
1) The components are soldered on the wrong side. Check the circuit again and take note to where the Transister front is...the rounded side of the transister should be facing you and the rounded side of the voltage trigger should be facing down.
2) Did you add the extra wire next to the diode.
