Set of Metal Gears n.4 for Robobuilder Kits
This set of gears is aimed at upgrading all the servos in
early Robobuilder kits* that came with gear n. 4 in plastic.
Upgrading Gear number 4 offers improved durability and reliability.
The kit includes:
- 12x Metals Gears n. 4 to upgrade the 12 units of 1108 servos included in
- 4x Metals Gears n. 4 to upgrade the 4 units of 1111 servos in the kit
* Please note the latest Robobuilder Kits already
include the 4th Metal gear; servos purchased separately do not include this
If you are unsure, remove the cover of a servo and check if the bigger gear
(gear 4) is metal or plastic. If it is metal, then this upgrade is already
installed in your Robobuilder.
This set assumes you have the standard Robobuilder Kit with 16 DOF / servos.
If you have additional DOF please upgrade those gears accordingly. Please refer
Standard Gear List and Upgrade Guide for more information.
This guide is also useful if you wish to upgrade the rest of the gears to metal
(Upgrade the Robot to Full Metal Gears).

The guide also offers additional information on what the Gear Numbers mean
and how to identify them.
