The price is quite steep at £180, but once you take into account the sheer amount of kit, the quality of the motors and the included software, I think it’s about right for what is supposed to be a premium product.

    I’ve seen this robot, and it is a lovely piece of kit. Very good quality motors – none of those cheap yellow ones from China – solid metal ones! PiBorg certainly know their kit.
