Rover 5 Robot Platform

1 item left

If you\'re looking for a chassis base for your next robot, look no further than the Rover 5. The Rover 5 uses 4 independent motors, each with a hall-effect quadrature encoder and gearbox. The entire gearbox assembly can be rotated at 5 degree increments for different clearance configurations. You can even replace the tank treads with traditional wheels.

This isn\'t a wimpy or flimsy robot base. Weighing in at over 2.5 pounds without batteries, this base is heavy duty and can drive over quite a bit. Check the manual below for dimensional drawings.

**Features:**

* Adjustable gear box angles
* 4 independent DC motors
* 4 independent hall-effect encoders
* Thick rubber tank treads
* 10Kg/cm stall torque per motor
