T'Rex Robot Controller Board Discontinued ???


Has the T'Rex Robot Controller board been discontinued?

I can't seem to find it in stock anywhere. All the sites I've checked has it listed as "Unavailable, Unknown Restock Date".

If so, why has it been discontinued?

And is there another board that is coming out to replace it?

Source for Wild Thumper Motors, Parts and Top Plate

Hello, I am wondering if there is a source for the individual components used in the "Wild Thumper" 6wd chassis? I would like to acquire another top plate and possibly some of the other aluminum chassis parts. Another question that I have is about the Motors with built-in shaft encoders for the Wild Thumper-- are these available in the 75:1 gear ratio? Will they fit the Wild Thumper chassis? I don't mind if I have to make something electronically to interface them, but will they fit mechanically? Is there a source for them? Thanks John

TREX USB Power for Idling

Hello, I'm new to this forum (but not to robotics). My wife & kids bought me a Wild Thumper for my birthday and I'm having a great time getting to know it. I also have a T'Rex Robot/Motor Controller along with an ODroid-C1 that I'm adding to the system. I'm connecting the ODroid to the T'Rex controller via the I2C interface.
