Description:

This is a configurable robot kit with selectable options at the bottom of the page. The options are pre-selected to reflect our recommended configuration but can be changed to suit your needs.

This small-but-useful robot is designed and fabricated in North Carolina USA and fully supported by SuperDroid Robots, an industry leader in robotics. It is a smaller version of our LT2 and HD2 tanks, but built with the same high level of quality, strength, power, etc. This is not a plastic imported robot that will disappoint you. It performs exceptionally well for its size and is intended as a small, maneuverable, customizable tracked robot platform.

The robot comes with a welded aluminum chassis, wheels hubs and tracks. Each track is driven by a planetary gear motor delivering smooth reliable power. The sprocket wheels are mounted directly to the motor output shaft and an idler wheel is bolted to the chassis. The tracks are molded 4 ply seamless tracks offering exceptional strength and quality. The motor and track combination allow this robot to go over most terrain, yet its size makes it very maneuverable indoors. 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 tracks). The kit provides you with what you need to make a compact affordable All-Terrain tracked robot.

Standard Configuration:

  • Includes chassis, hardware, electronics, etc.
  • MLT-42 Pair of Molded Spliceless Tracks and wheels Set.
  • Qty 2: IG42 24VDC 240 RPM Gear Motors.
  • Qty 2: LiPo Battery 11.1V 2200 mAh battery providing a up to 2 hours of operation depending on use. (LiPo batteries do not have low voltage protection circuits. Consult LiPo product page for important information).
  • Includes battery charger.
  • This robot comes complete with a Sabertooth Dual 12A RC Motor Driver.
  • Dimensions: ~12.5" Wide x ~16" long (tip to tip) and ~4.7" tall (wheel/track height).
  • Capacity: Handles up to 15lbs of additional payload in most terrains.
  • Speed: Variable speed and direction differential drive/steering. The motors drive this robot up to 300 feet per minute.
  • Weight: The total weight of this robot is ~7 lbs.
  • Assembly: Assembled.

Available Options:

This robot can be configured with encoders used for telemetry and/or speed control. They are very useful if you are planning on making your robot semi-autonomous. Our motors use hall-effect encoders.
