Using the Solar Car Assembly is a great way to experiment with gear ratios and the angle and intensity of solar light. With three gear ratios, high speed (1.7:1), mid speed (2.2:1), and low speed (3.4:1), you can see the difference gear ratios make under different conditions. The ball-mounted solar panel allows you to angle the panel towards or away from the sun, showing how direct and indirect solar light can affect power. Experiment under a variety of conditions (sunny, cloudy, etc.) and different gear ratios.
Tamiya is proud to announce the Remote Control Robot Construction Set DX, the latest addition to our unique Educational Construction Series.
Debuting in the 1992 Solar Car Rally In Noto, Japan, the Toyota RaRa X introduced it's four-wheel design in the typically three-wheeled competition.
This is a 2.25" x 3.25" x .125" thick aluminum plate designed to mount our IG52 motors.
The InvenSense MPU-6050 sensor contains an accelerometer and a gyroscope in a single chip. It is very accurate, this sensor is used in self balancing robots, drones, smartphones, etc. The sensor uses the I2C-bus to interface with microcontroller.
