This tiny DC Motor in Micro Servo Body is an interesting motor – it’s the same size and shape as our micro servo but it isn’t a servo. It’s more like a DC motor + plastic gear-train in a box. It’s not a super powerful motor, it would do well as a little robot wheel. It’s also a lot less expensive than a micro servo (continuous or non-continuous) because there is no control board inside. Controlling speed is done by PWM’ing the power leads, controlling direction is done by swapping the power polarity – just like any brushed DC motor.
When your little robot needs someone to lean on, it can lean on this support wheel. Perfect for use with 2-wheeled robots that need a third-point of support, this Support Wheel comes attached to a mounting plate and with 4x screws and 4x nuts for fastening to any robot or project. It can rotate a full 360° on the plate and the sleek black metal look suits any robot.
OK the name is a little…utilitarian? But this Anodized Aluminum Metal Chasis for a Mini Robot Rover does exactly what it says. You can build a very sturdy (and quite handsome!) little robot rover with this metal frame.
It’s made of aluminum so it’s light and strong
The anodizing is quite lovely to boot
Can be used to build a 2-wheel or 4-wheel robot
Tons of mounting holes & slots!
Easy to modify because you can drill and cut aluminum
Wont crack or break if it falls down the stairs (it happens)
This is a nice Top Metal Plate as an extra add-on for our nice mini rover chassis. You don’t need it but it let’s you add a little more storage to your bot. Perfect for housing your robot’s electronics and batteries underneath. This plate comes with two standoffs and the approriate screws. Made light (10.3g) and sturdy, it’s a great piece for your robot building future!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
