Join the race with the first product that blends RC racing with Open Source and Arduino.
Created thanks to the contribution of a successful crowdfunding campaign, I wanted to bring a new, videogame-like twist to the classic RC car races.
With the free smartphone app, you can join the race with up to 1.000 other pilots, and compete for the palm of the fastest pilot and smartest mechanic with the power of Arduino and Open Source hardware.
The 3DRacers Pilot board sports a Bluetooth Low Energy radio, ATMEGA32u4 MCU (the same of Arduino Leonardo), USB micro for programming and charging.
LiPo Charger, 2-motors controller with 1 high power micro motor on-board, 2 micro JST plugs for servos and expansions, an RGB led, ON/OFF switch.
On the bottom there is a IR sensor for gates and lap detection.
The micro servo weight less than 3g, with a 160° rotation angle.
The kit contains also a 150mAh 20C LiPo battery and a full set of gears, axles and screws.
You can 3D print your own car (no supports required!) choosing from 10 different car bodies and 100 accessories, Also download new ones from the community forum.
And with the programmable ATMEGA32u4 Arduino MCU, create new vehicles and autonomous robots. Make things move!
No coding skills? No worries: the board comes pre-programmed with RacerOS, the exclusive Arduino-compatible software that power each 3DRacers.
The Kit contains everything required to build you own 3D-Printed car or robot: with a 3DRacers Pilot control board, high speed steering servo, LiPo battery with charger and all the mechanical parts.
The car body prints easily in less than 2 hours, and it is designed to circumvent the most common print problems. Assembly is easy with and requires less than 10 minutes and is supported by a detailed guide.
