Motor Shaft Modification Tutorial

Based on popular request, the Arts & Bots team has created a video which gives a brief tutorial on how to modify the motor in the Hummingbird Kit for easier gluing and attachment. 

This method, developed by Tom Lauwers of BirdBrain Technologies (thanks Tom!), uses materials already included in each kit and a phillips-head screwdriver (not included).

The device, built using 2 narrow servo horns and 2 screws from the servo accessories bags, is placed over the motor output shaft and tightened to snugly fit against the flat sides of the shaft. The device can then be attached to other surfaces using hot glue and other adhesives.

Watch the video below to see how:
