If you’ve always wanted to build your own robot, or have been looking for even more advanced Robotics Kits than the classic AlphaBots, DFRobot has recently introduced their Devastator Tank Mobile Robot Platform, and we just knew that we had to get our hands on some of these fantastic kits!

This Devastator Tank Platform is an all-inclusive kit that contains everything you need to build a beastly tank robot, with tracks to give it impressive manoeuvrability over all kinds of terrain, Metal Geared Motors for lasting durability, a tough metal frame with mounting points for a near-excessive amount of extras, as well as all the small bits and pieces like nuts, bolts, screws and other peripherals to connect all of the important parts, modules and components together – with a handy guide to ensure you know precisely how to set it all up.

Additionally, one of the cool benefits of this kit is that all of the Connectors & Wiring have been specially designed to be completely solder-free, making it both safe as well as incredibly easy to assemble even for young hobbyists. It can operate on standard 1.5V AA Batteries via the included 6-slot battery holder, but can also be modified to accommodate almost any power source you want to use up to 7.5V, which of course allows you to use two common 18650 LiPo Batteries, or a dedicated 7.4V LiPo battery, depending on your specific needs or available equipment.

These features make this kit the most impressive Robotics Kit that we’ve had the pleasure of stocking, and we’re certain that, whether you want to use it as a standard robot or equip it with your own customised extras, the Devastator Tank Platform is the very best in terms of multi-functionality and hobbyist affordability.

Please Note: The RomeoBLE from DFRobot is the ideal controller board to use with this chassis, as it features an onboard H-Bridged motor driver and Bluetooth capabilities built directly into the board for ultimate convenience.
