  • 4WD Arduino Compatible Basic Mecanum Robot
    Over priced, poorly made
    Review by Paul
    Maybe $250 worth of hardware being sold for $900. Non-existent documentation. One motor encoder was jammed on arrival and had to be fixed before it would spin. Chinese manufacturer's website offers little to no help.

  • Lynxmotion Aluminum A4WD2 Rover Kit
    Nice kit, outstanding customer support
    Review by Chris
    The kit only contains mechanics and motors (plus on/off switch). This was exactly what I was looking for. I ordered the batteries as well and worked on my own electronics. I'm so far quite happy with the result.

    My experience with the customer support was excellent.

Robot Construction Kits

Posted on April 23, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under Robotics Projects & Kits, Where to Start.

Robot Construction Kits can be distinguished from normal robot kits since they use modular parts and allow you to assemble different robots using the same parts. A robot kit on the other hand only allows you to build one robot. Robot construction kits are a great investment because they tend to include everything you need [...]

Cleaning the wheel sensors would be a good idea. If you open the robot up, you might as well also clean the bumper sensors thoroughly with compressed air. They are found on the robots motherboard in two black holders. You will see a black arm moving inside the sensor ...
