ALL ROBOTS BACK IN STOCK!

Build Your First Robot Chassis Kit (BYFR), from Servo Magazine - ArdBot II

Make your own super-affordable and super-expandable Arduino-based robot. As seen in SERVO and Popular Mechanics magazines!

The Build your First Robot (BYFR) chassis kit includes all body parts: top and bottom decks, servo mounts, and fasteners (screws, nuts, and washers). Assembles in under 15 minutes. You must add your own servos, wheels, Arduino Uno microcontroller, solderless breadboard, wiring, and other electronics.

The BYFR kit is highlighted in SERVO Magazine in a series of articles starting with the August 2013 issue, and another version in the February 2012 issue of Popular Mechanics.

The BYFR chassis kit contains the following:

  • 7" x 5" bottom deck, with wheel well cutouts for the drive wheels.
  • 7" x 5" top deck, pre-drilled for Arduino Uno board mounting
  • Servo mounts (2).
  • 90° plastic L brackets, for attaching the servo mounts to the bottom deck.
  • 4-40 machine screws and nuts, for attaching the servos and servo mounts.
  • Deck risers consisting of: (4) standoffs with matching machine screws.
  • Skids consisting of: (2) 6-32 machine screws, (4) 6-32 hex nuts, (2) 6-32 acorn (cap) nuts.
  • Mounting hardware for microcontroller board.

Your kit of chassis hardware may vary slightly from that shown in the photograph, as we refine and improve BYFR. We strive to get you the best parts at the best price.

Note! Servo motors, wheels, breadboard, piezo speaker, Arduino microcontroller, wiring, switches and other electronics are NOT included. You may purchase these from numerous online retailers. See the updated parts list for details.

Available in dark blue only.


ArdBot Chassis Kit

As seen in SERVO Magazine! Make your own super-affordable and super-expandable Arduino-based robot.

Includes all body parts: top and bottom decks, servo mounts, and chassis hardware. Assembles in under 15 minutes. Just add your own servos, wheels, Arduino microcontroller, and other electronics.

The double-decker ArdBot measures 7" in diameter, and is made of 1/4" expanded PVC plastic. Plenty of room to grow, with over 60 square inches of usable mounting space (you can even add a third deck for another 30+ square inches!). Add sensors and other accessories in a flash.

The ArdBot chassis kit contains the following:

  • 7" diameter bottom deck, with wheel well cutouts for the drive wheels.
  • 7" x 5" top deck.
  • Servo mounts (2).
  • 90° plastic L brackets, for attaching the servo mounts to the bottom deck.
  • 4-40 machine screws and nuts, for attaching the servos and servo mounts.
  • Deck risers consisting of: (4) standoffs with matching machine screws.
  • Skids consisting of: (2) 6-32 machine screws, (4) 6-32 hex nuts, (2) 6-32 acorn (cap) nuts.

See ArdBot Construction Notes for building instructions (contains parts 1 through 4 of the SERVO Magazine series). See also ArdBot Manual for construction details.

Note! Servo motors, wheels, breadboard, and Arduino microcontroller are NOT included. You may purchase these from numerous online retailers, such as Sparkfun, Jameco, and Pololu.


Expansion unlimited! ArdBot fully configured with feeler bumpers, line-following sensors, infrared proximity sensor, and ultrasonic distance ranger. See the articles in SERVO Magazine for construction and programming details!

Arduino Robot Bonanza Teachbot Chassis Kit

Here's a ready-to-build mechanical parts kit for the Teachbot chassis, from the new book Arduino Robot Bonanza.

The Teachbot chassis kit includes all body parts: top and bottom decks, servo mounts, and fasteners (screws, nuts, and washers). Assembles in under 15 minutes. You must add your own servos, wheels, Arduino microcontroller, solderless breadboard, wiring, and other electronics.

See Arduino Robot Bonanza for more information on the Teachbot.

The Teachbot chassis kit contains the following:

  • 7" circular bottom deck, with wheel well cutouts for the drive wheels.
  • 7" circular top deck.
  • Servo mounts (2).
  • 90° plastic L brackets, for attaching the servo mounts to the bottom deck.
  • 4-40 machine screws and nuts, for attaching the servos and servo mounts.
  • Deck risers.
  • Skids consisting of: (2) 6-32 machine screws, (4) 6-32 hex nuts, (2) 6-32 acorn (cap) nuts.
  • Mounting hardware for Arduino Uno (or compatibles) microcontroller board.

Your kit of chassis hardware may vary slightly from that shown in the photograph, as we refine and improve the Teachbot. We strive to get you the best parts at the best price.

Note! Servo motors, wheels, breadboard, piezo speaker, Arduino microcontroller, wiring, switches and other electronics are NOT included. You may purchase these from numerous online retailers. See the updated parts list for details.

The top deck, bottom deck, and servo mounts are machine-cut out of dark blue 6mm expandable PVC plastic. This plastic is easy to cut and drill should you wish to expand the Teachbot by adding your own custom features.

NOTE: Available in dark blue only.
