Transit goods insurance
If you wish to insure, it will cost $1 for every $100 value or PART THEREOF. In other words if your order is for $145.00 the insurance will be $2.00. This insurance covers goods DAMAGED in transit. We do not automatically insure unless you specify it during the checkout. If you don't select insurance you are NOT insured.
We deliver to parcel lockers around Australia.
There are a LOT of parts to assemble in this kit, including the hard-wire remote control. You do, however end up with a fantastic piece of robotic gear. It is primarily a terrestrial 6 track (i.e. 3 separate tractor-crawlers each side) unit. The crawlers can be reconfigured to operate as grippers, or even as a forklift type mechanism. You will need lots of time to put this thing together, but it will be a pleasure as the 50 page instruction manual is superb with dozens of good old-fashioned line drawings, which are still the best for clarity. There is very little electronics (indeed none really,) but a tremendous amount of mechanical assembly. Electric motors are included.
This kit could form the basis of a sophisticated robotic platform with the addition of feedback systems, much of which are in the Jaycar catalogue.
