Naked Ant Kit – No Battery
Want to build your own Antweight robot kit, but design your own chassis? Why spend your days picking parts from many sites? The Naked Ant Robot Kit is for you! Everything you need for your bot, except for the chassis and armor. Get Creative! Design your own chassis, outfit your bot with weapons, and enter the arena with your own design. Buy the basics. The Naked Ant Combat Robot Kit!
The Naked Ant Combat Robotics Kit is a bot kit without a chassis, fasteners, and armor. The kit assumes that you already have a receiver, transmitter, and battery adapter or Lipoly Battery and lipoly battery charger from another radio-controlled device. This kit is for the builder who wants to make a custom designed bot with standardized insides.
KIT DOES NOT INCLUDE TRANSMITTER, RECEIVER, BATTERY, OR BATTERY CHARGER. THESE ARE REQUIRED TO MAKE THE BOT RUN. IF YOU DON’T ALREADY HAVE THESE ITEMS, CHOOSE ONE OF OUR BUNDLES.
The Naked Ant Robot kit includes:
- Two FingerTech “Silver Spark” 22.2:1 ratio gearmotors with 2.25″ Snap Wheels and Twist Hubs provide both speed and pushing power.
- Two FingerTech “tinyESC” speed controllers translate the radio receiver commands into motor movement and provide 5V power to the radio.
- Connectors and wiring to power the bot.
The Naked Ant Combat Robotics kit is an easy way to get the parts for a bot and build your own design.
THESE ARE NOT TOYS! Safety glasses and a test box are critical for bot equipped with spinning weapons.
If you don’t have your own radio transmitter and receiver, you’ll need to order the bundle or order a T6A transmitter and TR6A receiver, battery, and a battery charger separately.
