Engino Solar Powered PRO Duo
The solar pro duo set is the ultimate building set in the Engino solar power range. This bumper solar kit includes, besides more parts for more models, two 1.5V solar panels - connect them together to boost power. The panels can also be connected directly to the motor or they can connect to the RC handset, powering the Models effectively even from a distance.
Build no less than 20 groovy solar powered models guided by the easy-to-understand 44 page instruction booklet. Unlike other solar vehicles, these Engino models can be driven regardless of their position relative to the sun. The kit includes all the models from the smaller sets of solar machines and solar cars, as well as four extra models for a more advanced building challenge.
You'll be learning the ins and outs of important solar energy as you build your fun contraptions. There are 307 parts, 811 connecting points included in this comprehensive kit, plus the solar panels, motor module and handheld remote. The RC and motor can also be powered by 2 AA batteries (not included).
A clever kit for hands-on exploration of clean, green solar energy.
What You Get
Engino Solar Pro Duo. Model: S30. Requires 2 AA batteries for complete functionality (sold seperately).
About Engino's Solar Power Series
With Global warming and Climate change a real world-wide challenge, Engino considered it vital to introduce its solar power series. The solar construction sets use photovoltaic panels to drive and power models, they also include models with hybrid functions in-line with the latest technological trends.
Photovoltaic cells are used to harness solar power and convert this abundant, free energy into useful electricity. Using clean energy from the sun for our electrical needs, reduces the need to burn fossils fuels (our traditional and main source of electricity), hence reduces carbon gass emissions and damage to our global environment.
The solar panels (photovoltaic cells) included in Engino's solar series, are 1.5V and designed to assemble on Engino parts. Solar panels are eqipped with a DC jack and socket for triple action: (1) connect with a 30cm wire to a motor, (2) connect to the RC handset and power models from a distance (150cm wire), and (3) connect many panels together in a series to multiply the solar power!
When the remote control handset is connected to models with the 150cm wire, the hybrid function can be enabled. It includes a socket to connect directly to Engino solar panels and power the motor, or it can work with 2 x AA batteries (not included). There are 3 switches on the RC (1) Forward - Reverse, (2) Solar or Battery power operation, and (3) Fast or Slow.
