Bigger than Bigger

The Insectbot Hexa DIY Robot Kit is undoubtedly in a bigger body build than its ancestors: 15% larger in size and 20% heavier in weight. This, as a result, made Hexa the most powerful generation in Insectbot history: with three high quality 9g micro servos and four AAA batteries, Hexa walks steadfast no matter where it is.

Smarter than Ever
We've redesigned its code to make this robot smarter in motion, and has an improved capability in obstacle avoidance. However, it doesn't mean the codes are more difficult to read - you can still program your Insectbot with graphical language Ardublock, and spend some time tweaking it from head to toe. Improvisations and hackings are warmly welcomed - we'd love to see more diversified Insectbots!

A Brave Heart

The heart of Insectbot is "world's smallest Leonardo", a.k.a. Beetle. Deriving its core notion from minimalism without compromising functionality, Beetle comes with Atmel AtMega32u4 (datasheet) @16MHz clock time and has expanded amounts of interfaces: 10 digital pins, 5 analog pins and 4 pwn pins. To further make it user-friendly, it is compatible with Micro USB so that direct programming and testing is no longer a headache. Select "Arduino Leonardo (tools >board > Arduino Leonardo in Arduino IDE), the ATmega32U4 comes preburned with a bootloader that allows you to upload any new code that is applicable to Arduino Leonardo.

Great Item and Satisfied

Bought this item and sending to Singapore . Nice item and the delivery also very smooth . Overall satisfied . Will comeback to buy again . Thanks

walks backward

Kit was easy to assemble, but it walks backward all the time, trying to troubleshoot with help from dfrobot hopefully I soon get it working.

Fun build

A great little kit and fun to build. Takes a little time to bend the legs just right, but once you do it's worth the effort. Truly a joy to watch it walk and navigate. Wayne
