There are a LOT of parts to assemble in this kit, including the hard-wire remote control. You do, however end up with a fantastic piece of robotic gear. It is primarily a terrestrial 6 track (i.e. 3 separate tractor-crawlers each side) unit. The crawlers can be reconfigured to operate as grippers, or even as a forklift type mechanism. You will need lots of time to put this thing together, but it will be a pleasure as the 50 page instruction manual is superb with dozens of good old-fashioned line drawings, which are still the best for clarity. There is very little electronics (indeed none really,) but a tremendous amount of mechanical assembly. Electric motors are included.


This kit could form the basis of a sophisticated robotic platform with the addition of feedback systems, much of which are in the Jaycar catalogue.


• It would make a fabulous gift for a very bright 13+ year old

• Batteries AA x 4 are extra
