    Great kit, simple enough to be able to get my head around for a first build!

  2. Jimmi Cottam (verified owner)

    Super convenient and super affordable. Definitely grab a set or two as they’re handy to have, especially when you need spares. Quick delivery too!

  3. Jack (verified owner)

    Awesome kit for building a beetle. Enough to get a good start on the electronics without pigeonholing you into a set build/design.

    Can’t recommend enough!

  4. Stuart (verified owner)

    What a great kit. I found is really helpful in finalising my 1st design as it was all there for you to move around and work out your placement and dimensions. I would definitely recommend adding the break out cable as it makes things so much easier.

  5. Jeremy Hall (verified owner)

    You won’t find a setup cheaper with this level of reliability.
    It’s the first thing I think of when I want to make a drive.
