Description [Hide]

Please note: We are back to the GWS Modified (continuous rotation) servo, for $5 less.

 

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 (EZ-B, 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. Stay tuned, we'll have some project/application tips and tricks available shortly.

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.
