Campaign is Live!

by David Bershadsky

The day you have all been waiting for is finally here! The RoverWing campaign is finally launching on the Crowd Supply platform, after weeks of hard work and preparations to ensure that everyone who wants one gets a RoverWing as soon as possible.

A quick refresher on RoverWing, it is a low cost and feature-packed expansion board for the Adafruit Feather ecosystem. The RoverWing includes 2x motor drivers for brushed DC motors, quadrature encoder for each motor, a built-in IMU, 3x Sonar ports, 4x Servo Ports, 6x analog sensor ports, and more! The RoverWing comes with an accompanying library that makes programming complex functionality easy for both beginners and seasoned makers. RoverWing includes a built-in microcontroller which takes care of all low-level operations using a pre-loaded firmware, thus freeing up resources of your feather for other applications.

The RoverWing is the perfect expansion board for making quick and fun robots with advanced functionality and this makes it great in educational settings where teachers may want to have their students get a working robot as fast as possible and with basic coding knowledge while also allowing experienced makers to use the platform to quickly make intricate systems saving time and reducing code complexity.

Get your RoverWing today and start making as soon as possible!
