  Which to choose, REV9-18 RFO or REV9-16 RFO ?

That mainly depends on your system, payload, and application needs. The REV9-18 has a longer 18" chassis, rendering more surface-mount space for payload. It handles steep inclinations and stairs with outstanding traction and accuracy. The REV9-16 has a shorter 16" chassis and higher ground and payload clearance (2-4" depending on orientation) therefore allowing it to operate upside down / down side up with payload. Both machines come with Easy Access panels which maybe permanently sealed as an option to allow drive-through submerge under water (Note: External payload also needs customization to allow submergence). REV9-18 surface payload is mounted on the Easy Access panel (on top of the unit). REV9-16 payload is installed internally. Additional surface-mount payload may be mounted on either top or bottom side of the unit depending on ground clearance requirements

Resists momentary shocks, impacts, snow & rain, external voltage spikes, solvents, fire, hazmat, and harsh environments

All REV9 RFO Systems ship with switchable RC / PC controllers. This feature accommodates native system expansion and integration for controlled RC or PC as well as full autonomous applications. Self-learner and waypoint systems may be integrated easily.

Precision and Speed
REV9 can "turn on a dime" while moving at speeds of few inches per minute or up to 7 miles per hour. To top that, the REV9 can be upgraded to reach speeds in excess of 30+ MPH, making it the fastest UGV in its class - breaking yet another barrier!

Payload Capacity
At only 18" x 12" x 4" (REV9-18) and 16" x 12" x 4" (REV9-16) , REV9 vehicles have been tested with up to 200 Lbs of payload with recommended mobile payload capacity not to exceed 60 Lbs.

Strength & Durability
REV9 unmanned vehicles are built to resist momentary shocks, impacts, snow / rain, external voltage spikes, solvents, fire, hazmat, and harsh environments, with enough traction to pull a small passenger vehicle in neutral and on flat surface. That said, we recommend keeping your REV9 away from such conditions as often as possible to best protect your investment.


Ready For Operation with radio, wireless A/V, transport case, ground station, and PC


REV9, the Ultimate Man-Portable Footprint: REV9 is the lightest and most durable, expandable and affordable UGV in its class with the ultimate footprint for man portability and payload-ability. Anything smaller would be too small for reliable tactical use and professional payload integration - anything larger and heavier would not be "man portable" in any practical way.

REV9 is modular, fully customizable from the ground up, and easily expandable. REV9 kits come several formats to chose from: Almost Ready To Run (ARTR), Ready To Run (RTR) , Ready For Operation with additional options and upgrades. RTR Kits come ready with control radio ideal for simple radio navigation while RFO kits come with more elaborate operation equipment allowing each system to render service upon delivery. REV9 may be fully customized as required. We also build micro to passenger size unmanned systems. Please contact us to discuss your requirements today.

REV9 Tolerance & Accuracy

All CNC aerospace material is machined at 0.0001" tolerance. REV9 chassis is laser cut, pressed, and welded T5 also available in painted or anodized T5 / T6 or Titanium.

Two Step Maintenance:

Step 1: Clean machine after each use. Step 2: Keep batteries charged at all time. That's it. For REV9 systems with marine-sealed chassis, , simply hose down the UGV after each use and wipe dry. Otherwise use a damp towel to clean chassis and payload.

Repair and Replacement:
All REV9 Parts are replaceable. Repairs requiring simple component swap may be performed by operator. Simple tire and track repairs maybe made by a local lawn and garden specialist. Track repair kit is also available for field repairs. All electronics and drive system components must be repaired or replaced by an authorized RC Rover® technician.
