Here's our new robot tank chassis that we've developed. We call it the Brutusbot, and no, it's not named after the evil villain from Popeye!
The Brutusbot is a new affordable mobile tank platform that is customizable and fit to suite. It can be used to mount your microcontroller of choice whether it being an Arduino, Freeduino, PICAXE-28 Project Board, EZ-B or you could always go with direct radio control to a motor driver. We recommend the following motor drivers: Compact motor driver or the CMDR shield to drive the Tamiya twin motor gearbox.
Included in the kit:
The assembled bot measures 18.3cm (7.25") long x 11cm (4.33") wide x 5.7cm (2.24") high.
Please Note the following: We are now shipping version 2 of the chassis and there are 4 different pieces of artwork available which are given out at random. Under the Resources tab you will find manual v1.0 which is used for the version 1 chassis and manual v1.1 which is for version 2.
