Mounting and Wiring the V5 Radio

Step 1: Collect the parts you will need.

  • You will need (2) #8-32 x 1/2" Screws and (1) 3-32" Hex Key. 

Step 2: Secure the V5 Robot Radio to your V5 Clawbot and wire it to the V5 Robot Brain.

  • Use the screws and key to secure your V5 Robot Radio on the chassis between the two wheels. 
  • This image shows the inside of the chassis with the V5 Clawbot on its side. As you can see, 2 Plastic Spacers 4.6mm were also used but they are not required.
  • Use a Smart Cable to connect the V5 Robot Radio to Port 21 on the V5 Robot Brain.
