Unfortunately Dagu no longer sell this as a standalone kit.

The Quadbot kit is a small walking robot with 8 servos controlling its legs. It requires a microcontroller and/or servo controller to drive the servos (not included) and a power supply (not included).

We recommend the Dagu Spider robot controller for this chassis or your own microcontroller with one of our other servo controllers.

The kit requires assembly and contains:

  • 1x laser cut acrylic mounting plate
  • 4x foam rubber feet
  • 8x leg segments
  • 8x Miniature Servos
    • Servo specifications:
      • Weight: 8g
      • Torque: 1.5Kg / cm @ 6V
      • Speed: 0.1 sec / 60 degrees
      • Max voltage: 6V
      • Operating Angle: 180 degrees
  • 4x 3mm x 12mm pan head screws
  • 8x 2mm x 6mm self tapping screws
  • 8x 2mm x 8mm pan head screws
  • 16x 2mm x 6mm pan head screws
  • 16x 2.3mm x 8mm self tapping screws

Here is the quadbot chassis in full flight with driven by a Dagu Spider controller and some blinky lights for the fun of it.
