This is the Maqueen Plus V2, the latest version of the STEM educational robot from DFRobot for the BBC micro:bit (not included). Now optimised with more expansion ports, a larger capacity power supply and a larger body.

The robot is compatible with optional peripheral components such as the HuskyLens AI camera and Maqueen Mechanic kits, which makes it an accessible STEAM robot teaching tool for primary and secondary students. You can even control it using a DFRobot micro:GamePad!  It's not only suitable for classroom teaching but can also be used for after-school extended exercises, robot competitions and more!

Compared to the Maqueen Lite, the Plus V2 offers additional functions and greater performance. Whether you have used a Maqueen series product previously or not, you'll find it very easy to get started with the online wiki.

Note: micro:bit board and 18650 battery not included.
