T'Rex Tank Robot Chassis, All Metal, 2x 12V Gear Motors US$249.95

T\'Rex Tank Robot Chassis, All Metal, 2x 12V Gear Motors

The T'Rex Tank Chassis is a fully metal all-terrain robot platform designed to handle extreme driving conditions. This chassis offers the best of two worlds: It takes almost no time to go from un-boxing to rolling chassis, but it's also ready to be expanded upon and makes a great basis for a serious robot.

The chassis is equipped with two independently driven 12V gear motors with a typical current rating of 4A (No Load at 1.3A & Stall Current at 11A with a 5000mAh LiPo Battery). Each motor drives one tank tread with three lower wheels that help to improve traction and reduce shock to the main body and controller. The gears, tracks, suspension struts, and wheels are all made of die-cast zinc which offers a fair amount of corrosion resistance, reducing the constant need of maintenance.

Inside the aluminum body you will find plenty of space for your motor controller, batteries, sensors, and anything else you could possibly need space for. Two top panels can be removed easily via four spring catches mounted between the wheels. Additionally, the front hinged cover plate can be removed to affix any large sensor(s) to your T'Rex, you can even attach a custom plate to fit your preference. Note: Since the chassis has a full aluminum body, it will block any electrical noise and radio signals, so you will need to attach any receiver or transmitter to the outside of the T'Rex.

This is not a complete robot! This is only the chassis with motors. The recommended control system is the Dagu T'Rex Motor Controller (we no longer carry it, unfortunately). It's possible to use the Propeller Project Board instead.
