starsHard to put together, but rewarding! By Andrew G 2019-06-27 02:23:10

Some of the instructions aren't very good, but that just adds to the challenge!

Very nice car By Neal 2019-06-13 02:43:28

This product requires some tenacity. All of the parts were included plus some extra. It took me 3 hours to build and 4 hours to get programmed. The first attempt to get the program files from github seemed to work but I was missing files. So I deleted the SunFounder directories and restarted the download and install procedure. Then all worked fine. Not sure of the issue but some files must have been dropped or an error I missed in the download. This car was built with a PI model B+. The Raspberry PI board started with a sd card with Raspbian supplied with the board (Not SunFounder) then all of the required SunFounder files were loaded as per the instructions. Also a helpful hint get the pdf from SunFounder because the print is large enough to read.

The students really enjoyed working with it By Robert 2019-06-05 09:17:37

"I purchased this for a HS coding camp that I was running. The students really enjoyed working with it. I thought the vehicle was well designed and the instructions for assembly were ok. There were a few places that the language was a little awkward. Be warned, be sure the Pi is completely setup before mounting. Once it is done, it is very hard, if not impossible, to connect an HDMI cable.
Code for using the vehicle with of the three sensors is provided. It is a good starting point for working with the vehicle. The materials provided also provide a tutorial for how the code works, which is also helpful for learning the principles involved."

Im glad i bought it though By owen.T 2018-05-03 10:53:25

Contained clear instructions on website as PDF. I have not completed it yet but this is a decent quality kit if slightly overpriced at 110$. Im glad i bought it though. It was missing a small mounting piece but i just epoxied the motor right onto the plastic. Im building my own custom bot from this kit.

The instructions were pretty clear. By Mark 2018-04-23 18:08:43

It was a present for my 8 year old daughter. She did most of the setup by herself. The instructions were pretty clear. I only found that she had the servo plug in the wrong direction (all the other plugs are protected, and can only be inserted correctly). it is still very easy, and you can find plenty of advice on the web. The CD comes with example codes, instructions and step-by-step tutorials. Everything is running well. My daughter loves it and she is very proud that she built " a real robot" all by herself.
