Discovery Build And Create Robotics is very nice product. First off, I have to say the manufacturer is awesome. When I opened the kit it did not have any instructions. Within five hours of first contacting them they sent me a PDF file of the manual. Good on them!
So far, I’ve made the two types of dogs (it’s a head swap, really) and it works really well. Instructions are easy to follow and the pieces fit together easily. This would probably be a good kit for children ages eight and up..if they’re a good reader, probably younger would do fine.
The only fiddly bits are when you have to take the main modules apart (gear box or battery pack) because they require some firm squeezing that little hands would need assistance with.
The kit uses three different power methods: battery pack, capacitor, and solar power. I tried all three and they each worked just fine. Of course the capacitor worked better than solar, and the battery pack absolutely demolished the others in terms of performance.
If the model can support it, I would likely use the capacitor for most things. It is very easy to recharge using the battery pack as well.Promised Review by Ryno D. Bones
