Also, again the propeller, the shaft is way too tight to allow the propeller to spin on it as I believe it is supposed to do. Instead the shaft turns in the holes in the framework, lots of friction. No way you can blow hard enough, I finally tested using compressed air and got it to walk. Now I need to figure out how to make it work right.
Be careful when assembling. Test the sub assemblies for free swinging and if the bind, get out a magnifier and very carefully trim flashing. I took my time and had very low resistance when operating by hand. The prop implementation is a disappointment.
I've continued to work on this and it now works right but only after reattaching propeller blades. They stay on long enough to make the point and visitors are charmed, as I was.
Still, fun to build. Well worth the price.
The strandbeest walks just like it should, you do need to use a fan to make it walk. Just blowing on it is not enough, and will probably make you dizzy if you tried.
