Is your Pololu Balboa 32U4 balancing robot falling over and hurting itself? Buff it up with a set of beefy arms! These adjustable support arms mount to the side of the Balboa chassis and help protect its electronics from hitting things if the robot loses its balance or runs into an obstacle.

Note that adding these arms will significantly change your Balboa's weight and center of mass; you'll probably have to tune your balancing code to work with them!


Print two pairs of arms with support. Attach them to the side rails on the Balboa chassis with four 25 mm M3 screws and nuts.
