Rover 5 is a new breed of tracked robot chassis designed specifically for students and hobbyist. Unlike conventional tracked chassis's the clearance can be adjusted by rotating the gearboxes in 5-degree increments. "Stretchy" rubber treads maintain tension as the clearance is raised.
Inside of the chassis are 4 noise suppression coils at the bottom and a battery holder that accepts 6x AA batteries (not included).

       It is recommended to use NiMh batteries as they last longer and have a higher current output than Alkaline batteries.

      Each gearbox has an 87:1 ratio. The chassis can be upgraded to include four motors and encoders making it ideal for mecanum wheels.
