    Great Kit

    Pros

    • Rugged
    • Versatile

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about RadioShack Make: it Robotics Starter Kit:

        Nice starter kit with good instructions. Plenty of parts to make modifications or your own design. I added the motor add on kit and made a 4 wheel drive and 2 wheel ballencer.

        The only down side is the motor controller. It limits creativity. It requires an Arduino Uno to work and the Arduino with a motor controller is well capable of doing it all. without this board it's much easier to program your own robots. If the board were taken out, I would have rated this 5 stars.

          I like everything about it but mostly the quality, that something I almost forgot existed. It was easy to assemble with good instructions.
