  • The screw on the coupling might get loose after long-time working, so please pay attention to lock it tight.
  • When DIY Control on the App, the message to make Tumbller turn right is “i” instead of “r”. We wrote “r” in our paper manual.
  • When assembling the expansion board, if you find the infrared sensors on the sides are bent, please twist it a bit and make sure it stands up vertically on the board so it can work properly.
  • When you pick up the Tumbller vertically, the wheel will still rotate. After tilting the Tumbler ±27º, the rotation will stop.
  • Tumbller can’t be used in places where the sunshine or light is too bright if you are using the IR function, because the strong brightness will affect the sensor.
  • The LED will flash red when the battery is running out of power.
  • The USB interface is only used for burning program. When burning programs, please turn off the battery to prevent interference.
