Let's Make Robots!

In need of a reputable Australian distributor

I am completely new to making robots and need to know of one or a few reputable Australian webshops, as it can be hard, risky and expensive to ship something literally all the way from the other side of the world. I am wanting to make the Start Here robot. Please let me know if you can. I also know a little about PICAXE programming, and know how to solder. I really want to get into robot building but am finding it a little hard, thank you.

You don't say where in Australia you are but a good start would be Jaycar and Altronics - not the cheapest but stores around Oz

Ok, great thanks, I am in QLD.

Hey CP, what are their postage rates like, seem very reasonable and had not seen them before.


I know you are looking for an Australian distributor but I bought the 'start here' robot from solarbotics in Canada. They were quick and I had no problems with them. But that was the old version, not V2.

Just sayin'    :)

Thanks for your reply, I am going through Solarbotics, because the webshop located in India was no longer operational and Jaktek is currently being redeveloped... Puts me at ease then. :)
