    This is a great kit. I can make different kinds of robots, etc. Sadly, it’s not for novice makers. The instructions for the programming side is a mess. Three weeks into this project, I’ve still not been able to get it to work. I went back to Radio Shack yesterday to have them check it; apparently it came with the motors all dead. So I got a new box (with hopefully good parts) but I have yet to figure out how to get it working with the android app. The instruction manual is incomplete, and the makeblock.cc site is a mess; many in the forums are also struggling with this kit. I’m still waiting on makeblock support to contact me. So in the mean time, Radio Shack has given me 30 more days to try to get it to work so I’m going back to the forums!!

    Just updating my post… I want to be fair to the company – the mechanical parts are great and despite the minor errors in the instruction book, I appreciate the diagrams. I tested all of the electronic components. The sensors are fine, and the motors are fine when I connect them to a direct energy source. When they are connected to the Orion, they move/stop, they sometimes work, and they sometimes make noises and don’t move. I still haven’t been able to resolve my bluetooth issues – can’t pair and for some reason I get an uploading error if the bluetooth module is connected to Port 5 (which should be compatible). So perhaps I have a broken Orion. My current opinion is don’t buy this kit – get a good mechanical kit and find electronic parts elsewhere.
