Turtle Rover unpacking

My Turtle Rover development kit from Kickstarter showed up. Some unpacking pictures to share with you.

Parcel arrived.

Parcel open, invoice and license plate.

Parts packing.

License plate.

Relais board and switch. From IKEA? 🙂

These metal parts are heavy duty and obviously powder coated. Impressive quality.

Motor housing clamps and torque covers.

Wheel hubs.

All parts CNC machined.
