The Rover 5 is a new breed of tracked robot chassis designed specifically for students and hobbyist. Unlike conventional tracked chassis's the clearance can be adjusted by rotating the gearboxes in 5-degree increments. “Stretchy” rubber treads maintain tension as the clearance is raised.
This robot chassis is designed to carry a PCB board of your choice and can be outfitted with any components that you choose. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
*Note: This version includes two motors and two encoders.
Other websites say that this has 4 motors...
Like on sparkfun (ROB-10336) would this be worse than that?
Does this have 4 wired together or just 2?
Is this ass good as the other ones i see on youtube like this?
thanks for any help.
Motors can be changed if you can find a motor that fits. The gearbox and motor assembly is held together with screws.
I bought this platform from another vendor and was disappointed with the quality. One of the "arms" that contains the encoder, motor and wheel was cracked open out of the box, and the wiring is flimsy. It is usable, but I was overall disappointed with it.
