    What is the actual size of the completed tank?
    A shopper on Jan 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately we would not have the exact dimensions available. It would be roughly 7" in length and 6" in width. I would recommend reaching out to the manufacturer Makeblock for exact dimensions. I hope this helps!
    IR version what does the IR stand for?
    A shopper on Jan 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Infrared. This one comes with a small infrared remote control. Another version of this set comes with bluetooth, which can be controlled with a phone or other bluetooth device.

    It may be possible to upgrade this kit to bluetooth by purchasing the appropriate Makeblock bluetooth module.
    What's the age group for this toy?
    A shopper on Nov 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: My 8-year-old granddaughter had it up and running quickly, but it's her 11th robot and the 3rd one she's built from scratch, and she already knew its programming language.
    Does this kit include the Arduino Uno board. I ask because I already have the board and don't need a second one.?

    great kit
    quality parts and fun to build. It was a shame that they don't include the batteries to the remote. We had to go to an electronics store to get them

    Turned my husband into a kid for Christmas!
    This is a great gift for anyone wanting to start learning coding and robotics. My husband received it as a Christmas gift and immediately opened it up to put it together. Once together he spent the day learning what he could do with Aduino. I very much recommend this to anyone interested in robotics but not sure where to start.

    Satisfied rover owner
    I bought it for my son's fifth grade science fair project. Worked perfectly! Exactly what I expected and was hoping for! Fast, efficient shipping. I will definitely purchase future projects through monoprice.

    Good robot for the masses.
    This robot is pretty much exactly what I expected. Rather than going through all the good things I want to post some thing you may not know when buying. The connection for the front motor has poor ground clearance so this won't be good over rough terrain even with tank treads. All the connections for the modules are plug and play which is good for beginners but if you want to tinker with pins like on an arduino uno you will have to do some work figuring out the wires. Don't know where to find the default program the board is using.

    Overall quality product!!
    This was a gift for my 13 yr old grandson. He used it to prepare a "how to" video in his 8th grade computer class. What a terrific robot that was well made and fulfilled the task perfectly.
