Got a robot chassis and no control system to drive it? You need AndMark’s new U-Drive (Universal Drive control system). The U-Drive was developed to be used as a control system, as a teaching aid, or as a simple way to control demo 'bots.
This control system works with any of our chassis and wheel configurations (except Swerve and Steer), from the simple 2-wheel NaviGator Robot to a 4-wheel mecanum rover and anything in between. Add a battery and speed controller of your choice and install our U-Drive system and you will be driving in minutes. A simple web-based configuration tool lets you configure speed controller type, wheel configuration, and drive control from your phone or PC. Using the web tool allows users to control the robot via virtual joystick, and read battery telemetry and gyroscopic data.
Settings are saved and restored on power up. Settings can be easily cleared and reconfigured when moving to a new robot configuration type.
Note: This control system is not legal for any FIRST programs.

The NEW 40:1Tetrix Max; TorqueNADO Motor Gearboxes give more rpm when compared to the 60:1 gearbox included with the TorqueNADO motor. These gearboxes are designed with the same 37 mm diameter as the original 60:1 gearbox, while using the same 6 mm D-shaft and alignment pins, so getting the additional speed you need is a breeze.
Churro is a versatile extruded aluminum hex profile. The outside of this part is a 1/2 in. hex with small concave dimples which act as weight savings. There is an inside hole is sized at 0.2 in. in order to fit 1/4-20 thread forming screws. No tapping or threading is needed, as long as a thread forming screw is used. The outside hex size fits a 1/2 in. wrench or socket.
The 3-foot churro, our most popular length and the best value on shipping, is available anodized in red, blue, purple, gold and black to dress up your robot. Anodized finish is hardy and doesn't flake off or add thickness like paint, but it is possible for a scratch to expose the bare metal beneath. Take basic precautions in your shop like watching for sharp tools or overtightening this churro in a vise.

The Studica Fast Multi-Mode Smart Servo features all-steel gears and large amounts of torque. This angular programmable Servo can fill a variety of roles on your robot or project. In standard mode, it operates on a +/- 150-degree range. Using the Studica Smart Robot Servo Programmer (sold separately) the Fast Multi-mode Smart Servo can be configured to run in continuous, standard, and custom angular mode. In continuous rotation mode, the servo will have proportional speed control based on the PWM signal that you send with your servo controller.
