RC ROVER® REV9-16 Unmanned Ground Vehicle 

RC Rover® REV9-16 Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) is the smaller, lighter counterpart to the REV9-18 UGV, comprising of 10" all terrain tires for maximum ground clearance. REV9 chassis is laser cut, deep-welded, and painted (or optionally, anodized) aerospace grade material, with a footprint small and light enough to make it an ideal man-portable mobile platform, delivering superior ground traction, clearance, and payload stability. RC Rover® REV9 Unmanned Systems are proudly made in U.S.A.

REV9 unmanned vehicles come with top surface access panels which maybe sealed (optional) for water resistance and temporary submergence in shallow pools of water. Payload may be installed externally or internally allowing REV9-16 to operate when flipped upside down. REV9 is modular, eeasily expandable, and customizable from the ground up, offered in three confirgurations to start with:

- Almost Ready To Run (ARTR): kit includes complete chassis

- Ready To Run (RTR): Kit includes ARTR plus operator radio ideal for full remote navigation upon arrival.

- Ready For Operation (RFO): kit includes RTR plus ground station and transportation case, ready for turn-key operation. 

Selecting which UGV or configuration to chose, depends on intended use and project requirements.

Clear distonctions between REV9-16 and REV9-18 UGV include:

• The REV9-18 has a longer 18" chassis, rendering more surface-mount space for payload. It handles steep inclinations and slick surfaces better due to its treaded rubber track  drive system, climbs short stairs, smoothly with outstanding traction and accuracy.

• The REV9-18 has a longer 18" chassis, rendering more surface-mount space for payload. It handles steep inclinations and slick surfaces better due to its treaded rubber track  drive system, climbs short stairs, smoothly with outstanding traction and accuracy.

• The REV9-16 has a shorter 16" chassis and higher ground clearance (about 4" depending on orientation) therefore allowing it to pass taller obstacles, and to operate upside-down/down-side up.

• Both vehicles come with top surface access panels which maybe permanently sealed as an option to allow drive-through water.REV9 payload may be installed on top or side panels or internally.

REV9 Durability

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


All REV9 RFO Systems ship with switchable RC/PC controllers. This feature accommodates system expansion and integration for RC or PC use as well as full autonomous or semi-autonomous waypoint based operation.

Precision and Speed

REV9-16 can "turn on a dime" and move at speeds of few inches per minute to 7mph or faster with as needed. 


At only 18" x 12" x 4" (REV9-18) and 16" x 12" x 4" (REV9-16).

Strength & Durability

REV9 unmanned vehicles are built to resist momentary shock, impact, harsh climate, external voltage spikes, solvents, and hazardous conditions 

Payload capacity

Lab tested at peak 200 LBS of payload.

Suggested payload capacity not to exceed 30 LBS. 

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. For non-sealed REV9 cleaning, use a damp towel to clean, and a dry towel to dry the chassis and payload.


Repair and Replacement

All REV9 Parts are replaceable. Repairs requiring simple component swap may be filed-performed by operator. Wheels, tires, and adapter hubs may be repaired/replaced by operator or by the local lawn and garden shop. Electronics and drive system components must be repaired or replaced by an authorized REV9 technician/facility.
