I would have to say if your curious and new to robotics and programming, you must get
*If your love tinkering you must get
*if your an inventor you must get
*the only time if you love this type of project and shouldn't get this is if you can't afford it!
I Think This Item is Worth every Penny

I've had my KUMAN SM5-1 for about 6 weeks now--it's been a great adventure.

As one review says "this thing just works" another review says that the SM5-1 is a "tinker's dream"--I could not agree more with both statements, It was great fun--and educating to build, especially as when you finish--it works! But the next stage is even more fun, at least to me-to continue to "tinker" with it. As an example, even though the camera mount that comes with the SM5-1 is very adequate, I looked for and mounted-for the fun of it, a mount that is a bit sturdier. This process of tinkering is still going on--I plan to continue tinkering--additional sensors may be next.

The instructions, included pictures and video work, but there is a fair amount of "interpretation" required - but you can tell that a lot of work has gone into interpreting the original Chinese into English. Everything I needed to build and operate the unit was included on the CD, including the Arduino sketch.. There is no need to modify the sketch code at all--it works!

As for "support"--all I can say is that they really want us customer's to be satisfied. I've never been or felt neglected by the technicians. My only wish is that KUMAN would list more accessories--if they did, I'd buy them.

I'm 70 and I'm looking forward to seeing some grandkids to show off "my toy". Maybe this will finally get them interested in engineering and programming.

I pondered this kit for awhile. I read the previous reviews and like many was unsure. Well i jumped in as i have a larger scale project i am planing and needed a complete kit that was cooler than the ardruino starter kit. Yes this is not a simple look at the directions and piece it together like legos. The directions are a bit of an issue due to language barriers. The actual components included are great everything works. Inspect the battery pack as mine had a short at the solder connections. The customer service from Kuman shop is outstanding. They emailed me the new links within a few hours. If you have worked with rc cars, ham radio gear, or computer boards this kit is awesome. If you are looking for a plug and play dont use your mind type thing i would look for a ready to run unit.

Seller provided all the instructions and video for me when i paid. And they also answered my question very patiently. This set is an Arduino course and very good for learning. My son spent a few hours to learn from tutorials about this kit, finally he worked it well and loves so much.I believe it is really a very important for him.
