I have been a fan of Mbot for a few years now. I felt it was a great jumping off point for children to learn the basics of robotics with uncomplicated rewarding results, BUT it is Disappointing that the 2.4g version is not supported since the Mblock 5 update. This needs a patch update if I am to continue supporting Makeblock by way of further purchases within your range. Software updates need to be backwards compatible in order to be considered current to sustain my existing investment. Built in obselessence is not something I consider acceptable from a trading partner.
My 9 year olds love this set. Parents please plan to provide parts storage. It comes with real screws and nuts and they are tiny! The boys love that they can control it with the app.
Everything is fine
A box of mint, nothing inside was hurt, because. In addition, it was wrapped in a navel. Complete set + li-on battery.
