    I didn't realize until I got older that the large Gilbert motor with gear shifting, ran too hot a slight change in design would have it made it more fun, longer run time without over heating. ( Still have the 9 1/2 with the Parachute Drop.)

Check out Omar’s 2017 TEDMED Hive Talk to learn more about how this simple and inexpensive diagnostic tool has the potential to make a big impact.
