Description: If you’re looking for a chassis base for your next robot, look no further than the Rover 5. The Rover 5 uses 4 independent motors, each with a hall-effect quadrature encoder and gearbox. The entire gearbox assembly can be rotated at 5 degree increments for different clearance configurations. You can even replace the tank treads with traditional wheels.
This isn’t a wimpy or flimsy robot base. Weighing in at over 2.5 pounds without batteries, this base is heavy duty and can drive over quite a bit. Check the manual below for dimensional drawings.

Using this chassis is fun. It was easy to hook up. The only problem I face with it is the tracks keep coming off, but otherwise it works great. Here is a cool project i built with it https://youtu.be/LcFL2Xf_sUM

It’s hard to find a chassis at this price with as much support. It’s no space grade chassis but it is great for testing code and playing with sensors. Little loose in the gears, and the wheels still got toe-in from the clearance combines with the tension of the tracks. Still works great for prototyping.
