This is a pack of 20 :MOVE mini MK2 kits for the BBC microbit.
The Kitronik :MOVE mini MK 2 buggy kit for the BBC micro:bit is the latest version of our ever popular :MOVE mini that provides a fun introduction to robotics. The :MOVE mini is a 2 wheeled robot that is suitable for autonomous operation, remote control projects via a Bluetooth application or being controlled using a second BBC microbit as a controller via the microbits radio functionality.
The Kitronik :MOVE mini MK2 is powered by two continuous rotation servo motors. The speed of these servo’s can be controlled by simply altering the PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) signal to the servo, which is easy to do using the Servo blocks in the Microsoft MakeCode Block editor. We have also produced Kitronik custom blocks for the Servo:Lite to make the task of coding as quick and painless as possible, see the resources section at the foot of this page for more information.
The buggy also has 5 x RGB individually addressable ZIP LEDs (NeoPixel compatible), which can be used as indicators, reverse lights etc...
It is possible to add a pen or other extra parts to the kit to increase the range of tasks for which it can be used.
The included Kitronik :MOVE servo:lite board can also be used in conjunction with a BBC micro:bit to build other movement based projects. We've produced a wide range of tutorials and guides that can be found in the resources section below. We have guides detailing; how to control a third servo, how to code the buggy to draw shapes, how to write code for the on-board ZIP LEDs, how to code the buggy for Bluetooth control and how to use a second microbit as a controller.
This kit requires mechanical assembly.
The kit offers a fun introduction to the world of DIY robotics.
This product is designed and manufactured in the UK by Kitronik.

We recently bought the pack of 20 and having a few issues with them.
At least half do not drive in a straight line? They begin to drift to the left or the right. This makes even drawing a square difficult.
Is there away to fix this easily or do you have to continue adjusting the servo value through 0 -180 as the booklet suggest, until it runs straight. Is there anything we can check on the servo or micro bit. e.g voltage, so they run in straight line.
Thanks and they are fun,
Asked by: Richard
Thank you for your question, and I glad to hear you are enjoying the kits so far. Unfortunately the drift is a result of the servos in the boards. Because they start by turning a small cog and then scale up to larger ones very small differences in the cog sizes on the internal workings lead to this drift as each servo will be slightly different in speed to the other ones and this is a slight issue of using a two motor/two servo set up. The advice in the booklet is the best solution we have come across so far but I have swapped servos around between kits to try and get a closer pairing of speeds with some success in the past.
