This 4WD Chassis is simple yet versatile robot chassis designed specifically for students and hobbyist. Featuring large size chassis plates cut from acrylic and designed with numerous holes and mounting points, providing plenty of space to carry a PCB board and any additional components that you choose. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
This kit includes all of the parts needed to assemble the chassis as well as a 4xAA battery holder and four gear motors with 65mm wheels.
*Note: This kit does not include any control circuit
Specs: Length: 180mm Height: 80mm Width: 155mm Motor rated voltage: 3V Motor stall current: 170mA
The motors do not move at all at 3V or the whole frame moves slowly at 3V ? These have geared motors and will not move very fast but will have a lot of torque / pulling power. Get a Tamiya dual / twin gear box motor drive and you can configure how fast you like the wheels turn given a constant voltage. Mix and match gearing para makuha mo ang gusto mong bilis.
He, he ... wild thumper ... looking at this frame .. parang mild whisper ang lalabas. I'm thinking of something like a rock crawler that is intelligent enough to find it's way to get to a predetermined point via GPS ... then move around obstacles via sonar and still be remote controlled via APC or 3DR ... basically to look for downed quadcopters in tall grass .... hi , hi .... Marunong ka ba ng Ardjuino programming? Baka puedeng magpaturo ng konte ....
He, he, row four ako sa Arduino ... compile ako ng compile the sketch - panay error - kulang pala ang isang library sa Arduino libray folder na ginagamit ko .... kamot ulo.... Malayo pa po tayo .. ika nga, ilang cavan ba ng bigas ang kakainin ..... pero kung may tanong ka sa Multiwii - baka makatulong ako.
being a novice in robotics , i decided to start with inexpensive parts. i have settled down with **
i am using chassis , which has 4 dc motors each rated as 3volt and 170mah stall current.
as a motor driver i am using 2 motor driver , which can run from 6-35volt and provide 2A per channel
i do have a 5v/6v voltage regulator which will power my arduino and raspberry pi-
the lipo i am using is of 11v 2200mah:
now i am confused because i am afraid that using 11v lipo for 3v motor might fry the motor? is it safe to use 11v lipo for four 3v motor's even though the lipo power is given to motor driver (i am not sure whether motor driver has any inbuilt regulator to handle such scenario)
do you think that 11volt 2200mah - can run raspberry pi, arduino and motor all together?
This kit came with a 4xAA battery holder. This means 6v (4x1.5v). I use a 2s Lipo to power the motors and i don't fry them. So if you power the motor to 5-6 V. I think that it would be ok if you power the motors throught the 5-6v voltage regulator.
greetings, writing from Colombia to ask me listed 60 units of this module arduino one Product ID: 381 000 030 and 60 units robotics kit Product ID: 385 000 004. I ask then I listed these sending teams to Medellin, Colombia. the quote should come AFRIX SAS company name.
I appreciate your prompt attention
steering is achieved using skid steer. To go left left tires stop and right wheels go, vise versa.
Great kit for the price, everything included. Rubber tyres are great, not hard plastic like I've got from another wendor on eBay. The only drawback - no encoder. But like they say - "The possibilities are only limited by your imagination."
Just received this in the mail a few days ago, took quite a while to get here but for the price I could def wait. upon opening it everything was very nicely packaged. I currently have mine hooked up to a arduino uno and seeeduino motor shield, FINALLY a small affordable base for beginners and advance hobbyists, the only thing that sucked was while building this i had 2 of the 4 long spacers come with the product unthreaded so i had to replace them with second hand ones and lastly 2 out of the 4 motors work actually only one works at 100pcnt the other one works when it wants to, maybe i had a bad batch but i'd like to see if hobby king can replace the motors, over def worth every penny

Excellent platform for DIY robotics. Four wheels give stability, robustness and nice differential steering. Smart structure with interlocking motor/wheel sets, fast to assemble and repair if needed. Not really durable, broke one by dropping from table. This kit is so cheap, one can have another for spares.
Smart design for battery location between the chassis plates frees a lot of space and mounting holes for sensors/actuators/whatever. The best product of its kind IMHO at the moment of writing.
4 cells is not enough if you want to use Adafruit Motor shield and NiMh's. The regulator drops off 1.5V so you are left with 4.5 or less - no good. Double the number of cells to 8 and you have power to play. Tried with very good results. Have more duration too.
Highly recommended for basic robotics.
