This MakeBlock Ultimate 2.0 is very expensive, but has so much potential. I'm an engineer, so I'm used to working in technical environments- it's a part of my daily job to put hardware and software pieces together and make them work. I got this product to have some fun with my kids, but that quickly turned to frustration as some critical documentation apparently doesn't exist. Try for yourself- try to find out how to make Bluetooth control work- the only thing you'll find on the MakeBlock website is marketing- the beautiful images and glowing words about how great everything is and all the things you can do with it, but you won't be able to find information on _how_ to do it. They want you to use the forums, which is fine for all kinds of community-oriented things, but I don't think that _basic_ support should fall to the user base. If I was trying to do something unusual, then great, I'm on my own, but documentation of the most basic functionality that they ADVERTISE should be readily available. The manufacturer has some _basic_ responsibilities, and key is documenting basic use of the product and it's components. To be clear, the paper booklet included is quite good- it provides very detailed steps on assembly, and it will test your attention to detail, but after assembly, it tells you to go to the internet to actually make it actually work, and that's when it falls apart. That was almost 3 years ago, and recently we tried again, and got a little further, but not much. Documentation still hasn't gotten any better.
Really love it and is very well made The manual is super detailed I think its a bit too expensive. I got it for $300 with a discount, that is the only way i could convince myself of buying it.
Well packed, strong materials and ready to build memories! this is a very large box, premium quality as stated in the listing, this is a STEM project that helps children and grown ups learn about Science, tech, Engineering and math, I must add organizational skills and capability of following steps in proper order , we this one is a large unit fun to build and have in display . This robot uses Python programing, this robot can be controlled wireless with smart devices with the blue tooth connection!
Amaze my family and friends.

This kit is one quality kit. Never seen anything as good! Our 12 year old grandson has built 2 of the devices with a bit of guidance... Following the steps/directions. Both worked flawlessly. There was no missing anything in the kit. Parts were packaged in an above quality care! Jim.

The robotics kit is very well made and very well designed for the young robotics enthusiast.
the product is made of top quality materials, it is very sturdy. I was very impressed with stability when assembled. The motors are very strong and it shold last very well. the programming however, not so smooth. it has an 8 AA pack and we had a battery that mist have been questionable because it caused the BT receiver to lose connection after moving the wheel motors. easy enough to fix with a new AA. I wonder if this could have been fixed in other ways though. like not letting the motor take too much power away from the BT module. we also wanted to use direct control at first (instant gratification) and that required a google search and a different app to be installed than the programming app. that is confusing.
This is great for kids getting a hang of how stuff works under the hood. Few issues though which makes it frustrating to work with: 1) the battery compartment can be made a lot better. It does not fit well and also there is no cover so the batteries keep poppoing as it is very loose in terms of that. On a similar note, We have made the camera doll uptill now and the battery compartment goes upside down , making it more vulnerable to fall down. 2) the physical instructions are for only 3 out of 10 designs. It is a hassle specially with the kids to get the information printed or done online. It should be included as part of the product
