This kit has evolved over the last 5 years to become one of the most advanced robotic development platforms on the market, bringing unparalleled performance and quality the hands of robotics enthusiasts, educators, and researchers.
These hexapod kits are the collaborative effort from some of the top talent in the robotics community: Next-Gen AX series DYNAMIXEL robot servos, the ArbotiX-M Robocontroller, and a fantastic open-source development system make this an extremely durable and versatile robot that will grow with you as you learn more and more about robotics.
Previously the kits used plastic servo frames and plexiglas leg and body components. The MKIII now features 5052 aluminum servo frames, leg components and body set and comes with an expansion deck, making it even easier to add your own sensors, actuators, computers and more!
The LiPo battery has been upgraded to a 4500mAh battery along with an easier bottom-loading battery tray design.
This Comprehensive Hexapod Kit comes with everything you need for a fully-featured robotic platform. All 18 DYNAMIXELs, frame components, anodized black socket-head hardware, an Arduino-compatible ArbotiX Robocontroller, FTDI interface for programming, the handheld ArbotiX Commander, a set of paired Xbees, a PC-side Xbee USB interface, a 3S 4500mAh LiPo Battery, Multi-Function LiPo Balance Charger, and even a bottle of Threadlocker! We also have highly detailed step-by-step assembly manuals to ensure your kit goes together smoothly.
