I am looking into building a robot with my Arduino Nano but I don't want to shell out more then 50 bucks. Does anyone have any suggestions for a four wheel robot chassis at this price that I could use to make my robot mobile?

There's plenty of options on ebay, you will have to add a DC motor driver and optionally, sensors, but these are a good starting point.

  • Depends on your definition of 'good'. The ones I have seen were not machined symmetrically, wheels rubbed the chassis, wires broke off the motor if you breathed on them. Just beware, cheap stuff is usually cheap stuff. Learning to properly cut and drill a $.50 piece of plywood is an as valuable skill as blinking an LED, maybe more. – user6569 Apr 24 '15 at 3:39
  • I can only speak for my experience, which has been quite good so far. A DIY approach works too, but generates lots of overhead. Tools required to do a proper job usually do not come cheap. – Igor Stoppa Apr 24 '15 at 17:33
  • The ones that are really cheap are from "Emgreat" ... simple and "good enough". I'd suggest get a low end and play ... the model I bought can be seen here: ebay.com/itm/… – Kolban Jun 22 '15 at 23:41
