Talrik JuniorTM
Talrik JuniorTM, affectionately known as TJTM, is an excellent entry level vehicle for introducing you to the exciting area of programmable, autonomous, mobile robots. TJTM costs 30% less than other comparable robot kits. A completed TJ is 7 inches in diameter and 3.5 inch tall. TJTM is available in 5-ply model aircraft plywood or black ABS plastic, and rides on two, 2.75 inch Du-Bro wheels and a rear skid. A pair of servos hacked as gearhead motors move TJTM at about 1 foot per second.
