This "not in sync error" indicates a bad connection between your computer and your robot. It could be:
Usually, it can be fixed by the following checks:
- 2.Use the USB cable with the data function(the one included in the kit is good).
- 3.Select the correct board (Arduino Uno) and serial port
- 4.Connect the board and the programmer in the right pin order
The toe covers are for special experiments that require more friction. They are not required for regular walking and performance. We have removed them from the standard kit recently and you may order them as optional accessories.

It follows your instructions via the infrared remote, smartphone app, or desktop app. It can also do random behaviors if you upload the random mode. Best of all, the program is opensource on GitHub and you have the freedom to alter any bit of it.
Note that CodeCraft hasn't provided support for our 2.0 version. But you may roll back to the supported version within CodeCraft or through our tool.
You don't need to buy add-on components to use the basic functions in Codecraft. However, several extension functions require add-on components. If you are comfortable with coding with Arduino, you can have a much wider selection of third-party components.
Our controller board is an Arduino-compatible board specifically designed for our robots. The code is free to download on GitHub.
Both Bittle kit and pre-assembled Bittle include one Lithium battery with a built-in charging circuit. You may add more spare batteries.
Will I be able to use Codecraft/block-based coding with the basic Bittle package or do I need to purchase add-on components/modules?
You can use python to control the robot directly. The script can work either on your computer and connects to the robot wired or wirelessly.
The robot can run with a Pi, and you can mount Pi on the robot directly.
