Hi. When moving forward or backwards my R2 turns slightly to the right. Ive looked at the middle caster and this is moving freely. Has anyone had similar problems and been able to fix it?
Thanks. Paul

Hi Paul.

On the back of each leg foot motor there is a white wheel with a black rim - make sure these are not loose as they are part of the speed control for the motor - If loose, just remove & add a dab of superglue to the center before reattaching.

Another thing to check is to run R2 on a different surface and see if you get the same result, but it's more likely the speed sensors

Cheers!

Hi. Thanks for the advice, I only seen the first response. So took the feet apart tightened everything up and then put it back together. Problem remains so ill take it all apart again and try the speed sensors. At least ill be an expert on taking the feet apart Laugh

The white wheels both seem to be attached the same, not lose and moving freely.i will attach pictures.

On closer inspection the black rim on one of the wheels isn't as smooth as the other. It has a few small chips taken out of it. Would this effect the speed of it?
