YOUR DIGITAL SOURCE FOR COMBAT ROBOTICS

ITGRESA ROBOTICS

INCLUDED IN YOUR VIPER KIT

ASSEMBLING YOUR VIPER: STEP 1.

Take a few moments and make certain that you have all of the parts that should be included in your Viper Kit below. Quickly inventorying the parts included in your Viper Kit can save trouble later while you are in the middle of your build, and familiarizing yourself with the materials will also help you assemble the robot correctly.

Your robot will need a battery;  either a Lipoly battery purchased separately or as one of our bundles, or a 9V battery that can connect to the supplied connector.  Don’t attempt to recharge a standard non-rechargeable 9V using the charging jack!
