Has anyone bought the axon 2 from this website? if so how was and is it worth the money?

It's a perfectly functional board that is well supported.  It's easier to do do robots with it than most of the Arduino boards...

In my opinion, whether it is worth the money depends on what sort of projects one uses it for; i.e. if you're doing a simple project, a cheaper board might be better suited.

I also sell a cheaper microcontroller here:

Many fewer output pins than the Axon II, but has optional wireless and uSD card slot. It's programmed the same.

question for admin. Do you build the axon 2 or are you just a dealer? and how minimal are the functions of the 50 dollar robot with an upgraded ic to a 328p?

I invented (designed?) the Axon series. Not a dealer.

The 328p is the same microcontroller the latest Arduino uses.

So, you could use the $50 Robot with either my old source code, the Arduino programming language, or with WebbotLib (which the Axon uses) - your choice.
