The Mantis™ 4WD rover will take your off-road robotics excursions to the next level! The bug-like chassis offers extreme A-arm style suspension and nearly 5” of independent wheel travel. With four 313RPM HD Planetary Gearmotors, you’ll have plenty of torque to turn the aggressive 5.4” offroad tires even when up against the toughest obstacles. The suspension incorporates 4.62” aluminum beams and our 130mm, oil-filled, aluminum bodied shocks. An 18” long boxed channel chassis provides a rigid backbone with endless mounting and customization options, making it easy to bolt Actobotics® components and electronics directly to the chassis of the rover. Rubber grommets and end caps are included for protecting the motor wires as they get routed to your motor controller of choice. The 2.2” diameter black revolver wheels are driven using 12mm aluminum hex wheel adaptors to ensure a solid, no slip connection. If you’re looking for a rugged, versatile and powerful off-road robot, the Mantis™ kits will not disappoint - order yours today and get building! Watch the step by step assembly video. If you already have motors you can purchase this kit without motors - be sure your motor work with this mount.
