2. What you will need
In addition to the Zumo chassis kit, you will require these items to construct a working robot:
- Small Phillips screwdriver
- 3 mm Allen wrench (hex key)
Additional required components (not included with the kit)
- Two micro metal gearmotors (we recommend 100:1, 75:1, or 50:1 HP or HPCB versions)
- Four AA batteries (we recommend rechargeable AA NiMH cells)
- Electronics to control the motors (e.g. the DRV8833 dual motor driver carrier)
Additional optional components (not included with the kit)
Please see the product description for the chassis kit for more information and recommendations about selecting these components.
You will also likely need a soldering iron to connect your motors and batteries to your electronics.
