I am relatively new to ROS and I’m trying to find reputable places to purchase robotics kits, equipment, parts and tools. At low end of the spectrum under $200 it easy to find reputable sellers, higher priced items are filled with shady vendors with poor documentation who aren’t willing to provide information regarding the hardware they are selling.
Where can I purchase robotics hardware that comes with relatively accurate documentation and schematics. I’ve done research on several places (I’d rather take the high road and not name them) that have zero documentation or documentation that is completely inaccurate. They won’t provide schematics and finding parts for repairing the hardware when it breaks is nearly impossible. I’m not looking for perfection and I’m willing to figure out most things myself but a lot of the hardware I’m running into simply does not work.
