SolarSpeeder robot kit

The SolarSpeeder is meant to be an introduction to building BEAM robots. Although not a robot itself, the SolarSpeeder teaches the fundamental skills needed for more advanced designs. This competition encourages the builder to make sure the electronics are working properly, and more importantly, make sure the SolarSpeeder is mechanically sound.

A standard, stock SolarSpeeder should be able to cover 3 meter distance. With some careful tweaking, you should be able to aim it with some degree of accuracy, and get it as close to the target as possible.
