BombiniBot doesn't drive straight ahead

  1. After some difficulties with the custom office in Germany I finally got my BombiniBot-Kit today.
    Assembling the bot was quite easy, however the instruction could be more detailled in some steps.
    What disturbs me most: the bot is not able to drive straight ahead. It turns right - and not an insignificant amount either. This is because the motors are very different. You can feel the difference by turning the tires. I expected more precision in this detail as it is dedicated to teach children (the younger ones!) somethng about robotics - and you surely don't want to start teaching them a p_controller just for driving straight ahead. Any idea how to fix?

  2. Ok, obviously there is no sensor for asking the encoder about its value - so there is no solution for driving straight forward... :( :( :(
