Synthwave Pro Antweight Combat Robot Kit:

Synthwave Pro is an upgraded version of the Synthwave kit. The Pro version features a UHMW cnc’d chassis in place of the printed one, the most recent release of Repeat Robotics’ brushless antweight drive motors, a 2600kv weapon motor, and a single weapon disk with more mass than the two combined in the standard kit. This version is driven by a 4in1 40-45AMP brushless speed controller. Includes the vertical weapon posts from the standard kit, and a set of wedge weapon supports for feeding in verts.

Synthwave Pro is another one of our Builder’s Line: we love to offer some of the best kits in the world, designed and manufactured by builders who have spent years and thousands of dollars perfecting their kit.

Our builder partners continually work with us to bring you innovative designs. Maximum Effort Robotics and ItGresa now offer a Pro version of Synthwave, for the truly dedicated bot enthusiast! The Synthwave pro, like the standard version of Synthwave, is a Hypershock-inspired competitive Antweight Kit (US Spec: 1lb, not 150g). Synthwave’s designer is Kyle Kuffrey, of Maximum Effort Robotics. Kyle says, “I wanted to offer something competitive, but entertaining, and at a price point that is still attainable… it’s not your standard entry-level kit”.

Synthwave Features:

  • All kit purchases will come with a USB loaded with the print files for all of the printed parts on the bot.
  • Chassis Material: UHMW CNC milled chassis.
  • Weapon: 6.7MM thick AR500 disk bolted through a solid carbon fiber nylon weapon hub.
  • Weapon Drivetrain: Driven by an inset battle hardened 2600kv brushless weapon motor and supported on the other side on a M6 bolt run through a flanged bearing.
  • Drive: Repeat Robotics’ brushless antweight drive motors directly drive the rear wheels. Belts bring power to the front wheels.
  • Defenses: Shaped armor that deflects vertical and horizontal spinners, and keeps the energy of the weapon transferring into the opponent upon impact instead of driving the bot downward.
  • Power: All of the electronics are run by a 3s 450mAhLipo, run through a purpose-built power switch, with a BEC for the receiver. The 3s Lipo is NOT INCLUDED. If you want a kit with a Lipo, buy one of our Lipo bundles.
  • Armor: 1MM grade 5 titanium front plates, attached inside the bot to two UHMW backer blocks, to distribute forces exerted on the plates across the whole of the armor, not just the screw holes.

Kit includes everything required for functional robot except transmitter/receiver and 3s lipo. See our bundles for complete sets of ancillary gear literally everything you need.

IMPORTANT NOTES: Due to the nature of this robot, we do not recommend this kit as a first robot. This robot is also not appropriate for children. It is a destructive antweight combat bot. Despite their small size, antweight bots like these can be incredibly dangerous and should always be handled with safety in mind. There is as much kinetic energy in this bot’s weapon as in a small caliber bullet. Buyer assumes all liability for injuries occurring from improper usage.

Always test in an adequate test box.

The Synthwave Pro Antweight Combat Robot Kit includes everything you need to make the robot run EXCEPT a battery (you’ll also need the means to charge it), and a compatible receiver/transmitter to control the bot. See our links for details.

This is not a toy! Synthwave has a dangerous spinning weapon that packs as much kinetic energy as a bullet. This kit is intended only for serious robot fighters with experience. A test box is also required for safety. Do not run or test the bot outside of the test box or a properly configured arena.

  • List of worldwide Robot Combat Events.
  • In the Atlanta Area, combat robotics events occur under the auspices of Robot Battles twice a year, once at MomoCon (Memorial Day weekend) and once at DragonCon (Labor Day Weekend).
  • ItGresa fields teams at both conventions every year, and we are always looking to add fighters to our teams.
