Viper Kit – Radio and Charger

$249.99

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.

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.

The Fingertech Viper Combat Robot Kit with Controller and Charger is the base bot kit that allows you to get started in combat robotics.  The base kit assumes that you already have a lipoly battery charger. Lipoly batteries require a specific charging device.

KIT DOES NOT INCLUDE A BATTERY CHARGER.  THIS IS REQUIRED TO RECHARGE THE LIPOLY BATTERY.  IF YOU DON’T ALREADY HAVE A CHARGER, CHOOSE OUR BUNDLE WITH CHARGER.
