Motor is fitted in the sidecar and drives the sidecar wheel, steering servo attached to the side of the bike with a pushrod to the front forks.
Receiver goes in front pannier with speed controller under spare wheel in sidecar, battery will go under legs of sidecar passenger.
Running on 11.1v Li-Po, gives walking speed

Motor = Pololu 30:1 gearmotor 37mm dia, 52mm length
Wheel hub = 6mm hub 60mm dia
Servo = small metal geared
Receiver = FrSky 4 ch only 2 used but it's quite small

I also modified the Dragon rider figure to have flexable arms using silicone tubing and a different set of gloved hands. No head movement as I wanted to keep the weight down
