About the A4WD1 v2 Robot
The Lynxmotion Aluminum 4WD1 Robot Kit is a robust, modifiable, and expandable chassis for your RC or autonomous robot experimentation. By utilizing popular RC truck tires and wheels the robot has excellent traction. Using our small NiMH battery packs and the Sabertooth 2x10 R/C motor controller means there is plenty of room inside for additional electronics. However, if you run out of room inside we have additional decks that can be added to the top for future expansion. The decks can stack on top of each other, so you can add as many as your project requires. If you have an idea for a deck that you'd like to see, email us! The robot is capable of carrying up to a 5lb payload. We have optional accessories, such as a Pan & Tilt or a Gripper with many more in the works.

The Mechanics
The robot chassis is made from heavy-duty anodized aluminum structural brackets and ultra-tough laser-cut Lexan panels. It includes four 12.0vdc 30:1 gear head motors and our 4.75" tires and wheels.

Controlling the Robot
This version of the robot uses our Bot Board, Basic Atom Pro and three GP2D12 sensors for obstacle detection and avoidance.

The robot is compatible with the following batteries and chargers.

To keep costs down we are not providing printed Assembly Guides. They are provided online, so you will need to print them when you order the kits. By providing the Assembly Guides online we can provide more detailed and up to date information than the old hardcopy method allowed.
