Viper Kit – battery 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 and Charger is the kit for you if you already have your own transmitter and receiver!
The Fingertech Viper Combat Robotics Kit is the base bot kit that allows you to get started in combat robotics. The base kit assumes that you already have a receiver and transmitter from another radio-controlled device.
The base Viper kit includes:
- A custom-formed 6061-T6 Aluminum chassis, which has plenty of strength and space for additional components and upgrades.
- Two FingerTech “Silver Spark” 22.2:1 ratio gearmotors with 2.25″ Snap Wheels and Snap 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.
- Polycarbonate combat armor that protects the bot and keeps the components safe.
The Viper Combat Robotics kit is fully intended to be sawed, drilled, modified, and upgraded. Recommended for ages 10+ (6+ with a parent).
Its’ base weight is only 313grams (11.0oz) leaving:
• 141grams (4.97oz) for additional parts if entering the Antweight (1lb) weight class
• 1049g (37.0oz) if entering the Beetleweight (3lb) weight class. (The Viper is mainly run in the Antweight 1lb class). We generally don’t recommend Vipers be run as beetleweights.
