Wild Thumper 6WD
PRODUCT ID: 385000037-0

I purchased this because of the rugged chassis and upper plate for an open platform to mount test equipment. I found the vehicle to handle sandy terrain very well with the large 6 wheel drive system.
The 34:1 gearing of the motors is ideal for slow travel with the 2 cell Lipo battery packs supplying 7.2 Volts. The motors are rated for 6 Volt operation and I experienced two motor failures, during an autonomous navigation mission. The failure was due to a stalled vehicle against a chain link fence. The APM Auto mission feature kept the Rover navigating and not going into Hold Mode when it stalled.
The replacement motors are about $23.00 each and not carried by HK as a replacement part.
I found an internet web site for replacement parts for the Wild Thumper Rover. https://www.pololu.com/product/1573

The wild thumper is the perfect platform for Ardurover.Lots of room for the APM 2.6 or Pixhawk from 3DRrobotics. This 6 wheel rover will go almost anywhere.It will even climb stairs. More fun than any other platform I have used in robotics. I have integrated dimension engineerings 2x25 controller
and skid steering.Totally Awesome!!
