Wowwee Roboraptor

Help needed please.. I had a Roboraptor arrive today. It came with batteries installed and when I pushed the on button It fired up okay. It does a few things but seems very sluggish. When I push the button to move it forward the little arms move and you can hear the mechanisms working but he dont go knowhere fast and when you lift him up his legs are moving only slightly would this be the cause of low batteries or could it be a more serious problem... any help would be appreciated regards...Armo

Definitely low batteries. Change them to something high powered like Energizers or Duracell. I use Energizer NiMh rechargeables.

No, definitely not fast! But rather cute and amusing. I'm about to upload a video of my Raptor (Fido) roaming my house. Actually there are 3 for the different moods he has. In the video you'll see how he moves with fresh batteries in.

Nope Armo it not me bidding, Sorry! I agree with you Idrum with the BATTERIES, this will really boost up Armo's Raptor. I have the original WowWee White and Black one but I would love to change its color but this will have to wait till the other projects I have get finnished.

Sorry I'm soo late on this thread but work was calling all day long and every once in a while I could check my E-mail when I'm in my car going to the next client that has a copier down and with the tax season just starting here, there will be a boost of machine that will need repairing so I guess alot of overtime for me hehehe.

Robo, BG - if you're low on funds, see if you can get a Roboreptile first. Much more agile and entertaining.
