5.... 4.... 3.... 2.... 1.... Turn your Raspberry Pi into a spaceship!

This robot chassis is designed to be used with our Explorer HAT, or Explorer pHAT boards though it will work with other motor drivers!

The kit is a great way to introduce yourself to robots and controlling motors with your Raspberry Pi. It even includes a camera mount so your little robot can take pictures while it's roaming around!

There is no soldering required and the whole kit can be put together with asmall flat-head screwdriver.
