Lynxmotion Servo Erector Set V1.1


Product Highlights

  • Modular bracket-based robot construction kit
  • Construct five different robots
  • Programmable in Arduino
  • Durable metal brackets
  • PS2 / Bluetooth / Autonomous control & more!


These are the main components included with the SES V1.1 Kit:

The kit includes one 6V, 2800mAh NiMh battery pack and corresponding universal charger. The battery tends to last around 15 minutes to 30 minutes depending on the robot and how you use it. In certain cases (such as the AL5D arm and SQ3 quadruped which consume high current, you will need a 9V battery to power the logic. You will also need 4xAAA batteries for the PS2 controller (not included). A wired PS2 controller is sold separately.

Software FlowBotics Studio V2

Included with the SES kit is the new FlowBotics Studio (which itself includes the full version of the popular FlowStone software valued at $250!). Flowbotics Studio is an easy to use graphical, Windows – based program for programming and controlling anything you build without the need to create lines of code. FlowBotics Studio interacts directly with the SSC-32U servo controller via Bluetooth (no need for the BotBoarduino), off-loading all of the higher level mathematics to the computer. There is also a visual representation of each of the five sample robots making it easier to position the servos for each sequence. All the tools and tutorials are available to help you build upon these samples or create your own from scratch.

The BotBoarduino is based on the Arduino Duemilanove microcontroller, which means it can be programmed in Arduino (one of the most popular and easy to use programming languages around)!. There is code available to control each of the five sample robots using the PS2 transmitter / receiver, and once you get used to programming in Arduino, you can explore the code further, and add to it, optimize it and share it with others. Special thanks to all those in the Lynxmotion community who played a part in developing this code. Sample code is available in order to control each of the five robots below using the PS2 controller.

Hitec Servos Brackets & Mounting hardware
Our selection of standard brackets can use most standard size Hitec analog or digital servos. The SES V1.1 includes four HS-422 servos and 8x more powerful HS-645MG standard sized servos. We also include a pair of continuous rotation servos to allow you to make a small wheeled rover. Note that servos from other manufacturers are not guaranteed (nor likely) to fit the SES brackets. Should you want to add to the SES kit, the HS-3xx, 4xx, 5xx, 6xx, 54xx, 56xx, and 59xx servos are verified to fit the standard brackets, providing for a wide range of torques, speeds and prices.

The large servo bracket line can use several Hitec large size normal or digital servos. The SES kit includes one HS-755HB and one HS-805BB quarter-scale servos. The HS-755MG, HS-5745MG and 805MG servos are also verified to fit. Note that servos from other manufacturers will likely not be compatible with these brackets. Although not included with the SES kit, there are also small servo brackets available for a range of micro Hitec servos.

All brackets and hardware are included and allows you to build any of the five robots listed below. Note that only one robot can be built at a time.
