Assembled EdTank with cannon on top.  However, EdTank seems to have a hard time turning left and right.  EdTank Basic (without Cannon on top) turns left and right without any issue.  My Son thinks that this issue is caused by heavy load of cannon…. any advice/help is appreciated.

Hi Nader,

Just like many real tanks, the EdTank’s design means it will be slow to turn left or right. When the EdCreate tracks are brand new, they may be extra grippy, which will make the EdTank turn even slower. Your son is correct that the Cannon on top of the tank adds extra weight which will increase grip, causing the tank to turn even slower. You can reduce the grip by removing the tracks and lightly dusting them with talcum powder. Be sure to knock any excess powder off the tracks before putting them back onto the EdTank.

Please let me know if this advice helps in your situation. (Also note that the tread is likely to work without adding any powder as they wear in.)

The Australian Federal Parliament has passed a law that extends goods and services tax (GST) to low value imports of physical goods imported by consumers from 1 July 2018.

This means that all customers purchasing Edison robots and accessories with an Australian shipping address must now pay GST. The GST will be automatically added to your purchase and show as a line item on your invoice.
