Tetrix Max Project – Part I

TextixMaxFrom: Pitsco Education

This is one of the Heavy Duty robot building platforms. Aluminum construction components, brass axle bearing bushings, fully RC ready with a Futaba 4-Channel transmitter and matching receiver, motor controller and 12V – 152 RPM motors. The kit also comes complete with a builder’s guide which contains lesson plans for teaching robotics. I am looking forward to taking this kit to the next level.

Project Plan:

The addition of advanced mechanisms and a microcontroller to allow for sensors and autonomous controls.


Fully functional base platform complete and operational in RC mode.

Reader Input:

I will do my utmost to make progress on this project by next issue and report on what’s going on with it… the successes and failures. I sometimes learn more from a failure than from a success so let’s see how much of each we find. If something strikes you about this project… please email me at with what you think. I look forward to hearing from you!
