Good Starter kit with some limitations
on 7 January 2016
It's a very good starter kit for someone trying to build his first project. Not very difficult to assemble and build quality is ok for the price.
The main disadvantage I found with this kit is , it does not go straight without encoders. Means with if you just add batteries to the battery pack and then connect them to the motor wires, the robot will not always follow a straight line.
But I don't think for simple projects that's a problem.
I have added the kit to a raspberry pi and motor controller and powering both from a RavPower 13000millamps battery pack and it worked fine.
The motors are not very powerful but powerful enough to carry 500gram battery pack on its back :-)
