About the 2WD Servo Robot
This kit can only be made as part of the Lynxmotion SES V1.1 kit and is not available separately.
The Lynxmotion Aluminum 2WD Servo Robot Kit is a robust, modifiable, and expandable chassis for your RC or autonomous robot experimentation. By utilizing plastic wheels with rubber rim, robot has excellent traction. Using our small 6V NiMH battery pack and the BotBoarduino means there is plenty of room for additional sensors and electronics.

The Mechanics
The main robot chassis is made using Servo Erector Set modular brackets while the electronic carrier is made out of ultra-tough laser-cut Lexan. It includes two Hitec 1425CR continuous rotation servo motors and our 2.63" wheels.

Controlling the Robot
This version of the robot uses our Botboarduino, and comes as a bare-bones kit. You can control the basic robot via USB cable, or purchase the optional RC-01 V2 PS2 controller kit and PS2 Receiver Carrier to convert it into a remote controlled vehicle. Alternatively, you can add sensors to make it autonomous, or arduino Shields to further increase the functionality and capability.

Powering Options
The robot is compatible with the following batteries and chargers.
  Chargers & Accessories
    > 6.0 - 12vdc Ni-CD & Ni-MH Universal Smart Charger (USC-02)
    > 6.0 Volt Ni-MH 1600mAh Battery Pack (BAT-03)
    > 6.0 Volt Ni-MH 2800mAh Battery Pack (BAT-05)

To keep costs down we are not providing printed Assembly Guides. They are provided online, so you will need to print them when you order the kits. By providing the Assembly Guides online we can provide more detailed and up to date information than the old hardcopy method allowed.
