Product Description

A running robot for beginners as well as experienced developers: With the "Hexapod Robobug" complete set, consisting of electronics, mechanics and digital high-performance servos, you can build your own Hexapod running robot and enter the exciting world of robotics! The "Hexapod Robobug" complete set is the ideal basis for entering the fields of electronics, mechanics and programming: it enables a large number of extensions by using additional user boards such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi or NodeMCU and offers space for many additional components. The robot is designed in such a way that it can be controlled without programming using the controller supplied, similar to an RC model. Thanks to its expandability and flexibility, the robot is perfect for hobby, research, schools, education and training and encourages independent development and expansion.
