Great little robot platform
This is a great little platform for a small (10 x 10)robot. I only wish it had the encoder option on the motors, but hey, for the price it's great. It is basic so you will need a controller, motor drivers, sensors and some kind of remote or wireless. The frame is very solid and pretty roomy. Lots of holes to attach standard sensor frames and servos. I'm using it to debug software and it's perfect for what I want. I love the SainSmart store too. I usually run out of money before I can put everything I want into my cart because they have so much to offer. I have never been disappointed with them.
nice product for the price
It moves fast even on hard floors but a little slowly on carpet. Overall I am satisfied with its performance.
It looks smart. It works but moves slowly on the coarse floor. what a pity that it has no manual.
It's a good idea and a great looking chassis, and it has plenty of mounting points, including some that align with the arduino. However, the motors are far too weak. They'll drive forward and reverse but struggle to turn on hard floors, such as carpet.
