This beginning robotic kit includes everything you need to get started in robots at a bargin price. This bundle requires some assembly including simple soldering.
The Gobbit chassis is a dual gear motor with rear ball caster base. It is ruggedly made from both rigid and expanded PVC, and features snap together tool-less assembly for the major structural components which allows for quick assembly and access.
The included chassis has pre-configured mounting screw holes for the arduino Uno and Pololu QTR-8x line sensors. Additional components can easily be located and mounted with double sided foam or Velcro tape, or simply by screwing into the PVC with typical wood screws.
Kit does require some soldering.
