Building on the technology developed for the Weta Drum Beetle kits, Trilobite
use 3/8" UHMW main rails combined with watercut 7075 Aluminium panels and mini nutstrip to construct a rigid and very tough base chassis.
Drive is provided by four 1000rpm Motors, 2.25" Liteflight Wheels
powered by a 4S LiPo Battery. The wheels are well protected by UHMW side armor but exposed at the rear so as to ensure they can always get a grip and reduce the chance of the bot getting trapped.
A wedge can be securely attached to the front of the bot using a 1/4" Titanium axle. Wedge shown is one made for its first competition. No wedge is supplied
with the kit although kitbots can make one on request.
