Viper Kit – Radio and Charger
Combat Robotics is a great sport for kids or grown-ups. If you’re a parent, interested in getting your children involved in STEM, nothing could be better than Combat Robotics as a start. If you find your children watching BattleBots on TV, they’ll love learning to build and fight their very own combat robot.
The Viper Combat Robot Kit with Radio Controller and charger comes with everything you need to start from scratch! A great combat bot kit, A transmitter/receiver set, a Lipo battery, and a charger for that battery.
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.
