The DragonTail Deluxe Kit is a sturdy 3-wheel robotic platform that includes a pair of bump-sensing Dragon whiskers which allows the DragonTail to unleash it's full fury on obstacles it comes in contact with.
Please note: We are back to the GWS Modified (continuous rotation) servo, for $5 less.
Chinese dragons traditionally symbolize auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, hurricane, and floods. The dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck. Our DragonTail has powers unparalleled, powers over surfaces such as carpet, linoleum, grass, as well as other obstacles negotiation. It is a symbol of enlightenment and the intellectual energy of our RnD team, yay!
Say hello to the DragonTail - a simple robot platform for all your robot platformin' needs. Basically, we set you up with a nifty aluminum base, acrylic top and front panels with a range of mounting holes some servos with wheels, an omni-direction caster/roller, and a battery pack. The rest is up to you - we've worked hard to make this as flexible as possible, so that you can configure it with your choice of microcontroller brains (Arduino, PICAXE...) and whatever sensors or accessories you feel like slapping on there.
The clear acrylic front plate has mounting holes for all our common distance sensors and other accessories, from the Maxbotix Ultrasonic Line to the Robotic Claw. These are brand-new and are shipping immediately. Project build-list and source demo code coming soon!
We recommend using this kit with the Freeduino and GVS shield, but we also have to a convenient complete bundle to get you on your way with bringing the DragonTail Chassis to life.
We also offer a less-expensive standard whisker-less version.
