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
