Great fun for the kids to build and play with! This single kit can be built (and re-built) three ways to create a forklift, all-terrain rover or gripping ‘pick up’ machine. Lifting capacity H100g. Includes wired remote control.
There are a LOT of parts to assemble in this kit, including the
hard-wire remote control. You do, however end up with a fantastic piece
of robotic gear. It is primarily a terrestrial 6 track (i.e. 3 separate
tractor-crawlers each side) unit. The crawlers can be reconfigured to
operate as grippers, or even as a forklift type mechanism. You will need
lots of time to put this thing together, but it will be a pleasure as
the 50 page instruction manual is superb with dozens of good
old-fashioned line drawings, which are still the best for clarity. There
is very little electronics (indeed none really,) but a tremendous
amount of mechanical assembly. Electric motors are included.
kit could form the basis of a sophisticated robotic platform with the
addition of feedback systems, much of which are in the Jaycar catalogue.
