Tailspin Motorized is a motorized version of the Thinkfun Tailspin toy. The stepper motor makes the set of gears spin outward and then fold compactly back again. This version can be build from the following parts: the 3D-printed base (this), a Thinkfun Tailspin, a USB steppermotor with controller, a USB power bank, and six M3 slotted cheese head screws.
