  • Dagu Wild Thumper 6WD All Terrain Chassis (Black, 75:1)
    Fun
    Review by Kbressman
    The dagu stomper is a very fun bot. paired it with a t-rex controller and a sony action cam. Now I can drive it remotely with my rc gear and phone.

  • T'Rex Tank All Terrain Metal Chassis
    Great for RC, needs design mod for good autonomous
    Review by JMFV
    A very sold and mobile heavy metal tracked chassis. The only flaw is that in reverse over obstacles, the rear most idler wheel swing arms might get pushed down and forward, making it difficult to climb the obstacle. Going forward, the chassis is fast and the suspension works great. Also, if you use indoors, there are plastic tracks you can get from the UK for hardwood floors.

  • Dagu All Terrain Wheels Four-Pack
    Great for off-road applications
    Review by AHaeusler
    These are the biggest wheels available off-the-shelf, and since they're not solid rubber but air-filled, they are /the/ choice where the robot is likely to be operated outside of laboratory conditions.

    One star less than optimum since, in my opinion, the axle mount could've been constructed better. The way it is, you'll always have the mounting screw revolving with the wheel, which renders a close-to-chassis operation of the tires as good as impossible.

  • Dagu Mini Pan and Tilt Kit
    Good but screws are easily broken- don't over tighten
    Review by Stephen
    Good but screws are easily broken- don't over tighten,

    I am using this with FPV camera on a model tug boat.
    Very handy for pan & tilt video.

How Important is The Speed of My Mobile Robot?

Posted on March 13, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Industry.

The velocity of a mobile robot is entirely up to the user. A robot that moves too fast might be more difficult to control whereas a robot that moves too slowly tends to appear sluggish. Given the diversity of robots possible, there is no set standard (nor should there be) for determining a robot’s ideal [...]

What Wheels Should My Robot Use?

Posted on February 29, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Industry.

Designing a mobile robot and wondering what wheels (and how many) you should incorporate? You’ve come to the right place. Mobile wheeled or tracked robots have a minimum of two motors which are used to propel and steer the robot. Hobbyists tend to choose skid steering (like a tank) because of its simplicity to design, [...]

The wheels we have in stock all include the 4mm hubs. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and will look into the price discrepancy.
The wheels we have are silver.

I would like to replace my Rover 5's tracks with wheels. Do the Dagu wild thumper wheels include the needed 4mm hubs that work with the Rover 5's 4mm D-shafts? I don't think they do since they are priced well-below Dagu's MSRP for the 4 pack of wheels.

Do you mean RB-Dag-08? The servos are included. These are the servo motors used on the Dagu arm, so it depends on if you want the gripper motor or the wrist rotate motor: http://www.robotshop.com/en/dagu-12g-mini-servo.html http://www.robotshop.com/en/s05nf-std-servo-motor.html ...

What model and make would that be. I have ordered many servos and they are too small, too large, or continue motion instead of 180 degrees.

Thanks,

We are currently looking at two platforms to build on - the Dagu Wild Thumper ( http://www.robotshop.com/en/dagu-wild-thumper-6wd-all-terrain-chassis-aluminum-75-1.html ) and the Arduino track kit ( http://www.robotshop.com/ca/en/arduino-tracked-mobile-tank-robot-kit.html ...
