Robotics for the class
by Francisca on December 24, 2016
We are a robotic workshop in Mexico and we have been in the position to purchase 8 mbots which have been well receive by the children. This is a great robotic kit.
Very fun and educational for my 7 yr old.

Very robust, easy to assemble. Bluetooth interface with iPad mini 2 was easy. The only problem was that one of the Drive motors was weak causing the robot to travel in an arc instead of a straight line. Upon further research, I discovered this is a known problem. Instead of attempting resolution with someone in Hong Kong, I elected to purchase four replacement motors. They are about $4.00 a piece. Swapping out the weak motor with the replacement has fixed the issue, and I have three spare motors now.

Xmas present, so haven't tried it out but Studica definitely had the best price & shipped within Canada so no duty. Great.
