Instant robots! If you need holiday gifts – quickly – for that special robot enthusiast in your life, consider one of our robot kits. These can house a variety of wheels, tracks, motors and frames. Different gear and motor combinations and gearing can be selected to suit different applications. SuperDroid kits are designed and fabricated here, in NC USA.
This is our 6WD robot kit that uses our heavy duty 135 RPM Wheel Chair Motors and our 13″ tiller tires. The wheels are mounted on 0.75″ OD solid steel axles, each of which are supported by two heavy duty pillow block bearings. The three wheels on either side are chain coupled, making the robot 6WD. The robot uses differential steering (movement is based on two separately driven wheels placed on either side of the robot body). It can thus change its direction by varying the relative rate of rotation of its wheels and “pivot turn” in place.
