Description [Hide]

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. These are brand-new and are shipping immediately. Project build-list and source demo code coming soon!

Kit Includes:

Dimensions:

  • 17.2cm (6.77") in length from the edge of the front acrylic to the back of the caster
  • 14.2cm (5.59") in width from wheel edge to wheel edge
  • 6.9cm (2.72") in height to the top of the wheels

 

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 more budget-friendly standard whisker-less version.
