I have been designing products for DAGU for over 2 years now and have always tried to provide product support here on LMR. One problem I have had is that sometimes the manuals are too big to upload.

If you have any problems with these kits then you should ask questions in the component section. I answer questions there so that others with similar problems can look for answers.

The components on LMR are here:

    Hello all!This is my robotic arm project. It is almost finished it just needs the controller and a bit of programming it finish it up. Read more
