Get your project off to the right start - a perfect set of motors and wheels to build your own buggy:
Wheel for Geared Hobby Motor
This is a 90RPM Geared Hobby Motor. It runs off a voltage of up to 6V and can be used with our matching tyre.
The Laika Explorer Board provides powerful robotics control for the Raspberry Pi. Andy Bakin, the creator of Laika, demonstrated several projects at the OCR Raspberry Jamboree, held at Manchester Central on 27th and 28th February 2014, to illustrate the different ways in which students can introduce real world physical devices to programming projects. Presenting from the CPC stand, we exhibited several Laika modules including our most recent addition: the Laika Pen-wielding Buggy. The Pen-wielding Buggy is controlled by a joystick device, powered by a Laika Explorer Board and a Raspberry Pi. The buggy’s motors and wheels, and thus the pen, follow the motion of the joystick, allowing you to write your name, the Raspberry Pi logo, or anything that takes your fancy.
This is a Low Inertia Solar DC Mini Motor. Operating voltage: 0.5V to 3V. Axle diameter: 2mm. Starting speed: 1000RPM. Starting current: 30mA at 0.5V.
This large propeller can be used with any motor with a 2mm shaft. The diameter is approximately 90mm.
Together, the Solar Motor and the large propeller are great for powering light weight buggies, air freshener projects and much, much, more.
