RE:  Parallax QuadRover

Isn't this the first robot produced by Parallax utilizing the Propeller
chip?

Do they really want folks learning the unusual architecture of the
Propeller, mobilizing it for the first time, on a 89 lb, noisy, polluting,
14 mph 4x4 cruise missile that can't be operated indoors?  For $3495 and
lacking sufficient memory or cogs to do much of anything really cool with
it?

Don't forget to figure in the price of ramps or a lift gate for your truck.
