Let's Make Robots!

DAGU Promotion, Cheap HW, LMR Mr. Basic Special LMR version + 3 prizes!

Update: --== DAGU ROCKS ==--


Update: NEW manual attached! Replacing old one. Sorry for the format, PDF was too heavy :)


 Hi dear fellow robot builders, members of LMR.

As I am sure you know, OddBot has made us some cool contact with Jack from China, the guy behind DAGU Electronics.

Now I also had some talks with Jack himself regarding a production of some of my stuff (Thanks Odd).

And I tell you, the guys at DAGU moves fast, sends money as promised, and the hardware is actually REALLY NICE! 

And I am NOT just saying this because he is supporting us, I have tried quite a lot of HW that people wanted me to promote on LMR, and it was not all that good ;)

However - now I just got this cool mail from he’s assistant, Claudia:

Dear Frits,
How about these days?
This time I'll show you a great kit, named Mr. Basic, consisting of a aluminum alloy chassis with an extension PCB, which provides a reliable expand platform for DO-IT-YOURSELF. You can find the photos of it in attached files.
So far, we just have Chinese package for Mr. Basic, but there are English user manuals, so everybody can assemble it with his own hands depending on the manuals.
For Chinese market, our original idea is letting all robot hobbyists can create their own robots with our Mr.Basic.So Jack thinks this product will also be a good choice for the members from LMR.
We are excited about your idea about "LMR members editon", so we would like to offer 50 sets Mr. Basic printed with LMR logo with a special price only for LMR members, it just cost them 22USD($15 per set and another $ 7 for shipment) to own one. Every member who bought one and designed a new variation can put their creatures on LMR, and you can let other members and users vote out three best ones, each winner will be offered $100 from DAGU as prize.
What do you think about the above idea? Hopefully waiting for your respond.
Kind Regards,
Claudia

No there's not!
Thats what happens when it is written in one language and translated to another.

Which "forced" me into having to order some more electronics pieces and parts.  Darn. :)

 Now I need to start planning how I'm going to win the contest....

Claudia send me a new manual, replacing the old one :) Attached!

THis is cosy.

We should order the same stuf some more :D

The manual attached to this post only displays two wheels driven. I am hoping we all ordered the four wheel driven model as photographed.
The model shown in the manual is the same as the photos but the manual does show front axles without drive gears, two shaft connectors instead of four etc.
I disagree - I see 4WD in the manual ?

In the list of components, compare nrs 7 and 8. Front and rear axles. The rear axles have crown gears on them. The front axles don't. Also other driving components required for 4x4 drive (extra "joint devices" and "gear axles") are missing.

I am just hoping this is a manual for a different version.

Yes i agree with you rik.

Also . If it where true 4x4 then it should only have 1 motor - correct me if i am wrong.

As there appears to be no steering mech (did anyone twig this) - the steering has to be done by driving the Left or Right motors. The (front-back same side drive) will give an interesting turning ability on such a long wheelbase.
