  • The MostUseless Machine Kit
    It's useless alright!
    Review by Andrea
    Let me start be saying that I am a novice to this sort of thing, the last time I had anything to do with electrical circuits was in elementary school, and I'd never soldered anything.
    The manual was of limited usefulness to me, so I relied on online descriptions/videos to understand how to connect all the parts. The actual assembly went quite fast then, it took me maybe an hour, and the biggest chunk of time was spent on getting the quite small screws in place.
    The box works perfectly, and the friend who it was gifted to couldn't stop laughing hysterically as he kept flipping the switch, so I'd say that went well!
    Four stars overall because the instructions could be a tad better and because the box isn't very sturdy, I spent more time re-assembling it than assembling it.

I use this a lot with my rover and really appreciate your software.

It would be very nice if there was control for a pan and tilt camera and maybe an auxiliary latch for headlights and other gadgets. :D

If you could do this I'm sure the community and I would be very thankful!
