Special limited offer for all LMR members!
October 14, 2013
Ok, officially this offer is over but if you contact Pome and tell her how beautiful she is (flattery will get you everywhere) you might be able to get this deal until the end of the week (9th of November 2013).
The shipping of these kits is taking a little longer than planned. This is entirely my fault as I am a perfectionist and keep making last minute modifications. The end result is that I've almost doubled the lifting capacity of the arms from 250g to 450g (about 1lb). This is enough for a can of beer or softdrink (no beer = no good).
The panels are being laser cut this week. I will update this post again when shipping begins.
Good news for LMR members. DAGU is offerering the Service Droid V3 to LMR members for the distributor price of $85 if you pre-order before the end of October. This price does not include shipping or a Rover 5 chassis.
If you want to see what's in the kit and what's involved with assembling the kit then the complete assembly manual can be downloaded from here:
For that price you get:
- Full set of laser cut parts in black and white.
- All mounting hardware including ball bearings for wrist and shoulder assemblies.
- Aluminium pan / tilt assembly.
- 2x 12Kg.cm metal geared servos with dual ball bearings on output shaft.
- 2x 3Kg.cm standard sized servos with ball bearing on output.
- 4x 2Kg.cm little black duck miniature servos with ball bearing on output.
- 4x servo extension cables for wrist and gripper servos.
- Assembly instruction manual (PDF).
It should be noted that this kit is just the robot body and does not include the Rover 5 chassis which is sold seperately. You must add your own controller and sensors depending what function you want. A minimum configuration would be the addition of a Mini Driver and a bluetooth module so you can control it with an app on your mobile phone.
If your interested then contact Pome to organize payment and shipping details. Payment must be made by the end of October to be eligable for this offer. Delivery should be early November.
Here are some basic dimensions to give you an idea how big the robot is.
The pincer on the right arm opens quite large and is intended for picking up glasses, cans and small bottles. The sweeping gripper on the left arm is spring loaded allowing it to hold objects of different thicknesses from a piece of paper to a tv remote or ash tray.
Although designed for a Rover 5 chassis this kit has a flat base with 4 mounting holes making it easy to fit on other bases.
