January Updates

What a year!  With the 2015 return of RoboGames AND BattleBots, our inventory was flying off the shelf!  Our manufacturers are getting aquainted with our suddenly much larger orders and we hope that products will be in stock more often in the future!

We have some new distributors!  Another in the USA, Mexico, and even Australia!  If they don't carry the FingerTech products you want, email them (and us) and we will see about getting them stocked up!

December Updates

For anyone checking in, we will not be having a Boxing Day Sale this year.  FingerTech will be closed December 24th - January 2.  Orders placed during that time will ship when we return!

Merry Christmas!

Snap Ring Pliers are back in stock.

And that means that Viper Combat Robot Kits are back in stock too!  If you are placing an order for a Christmas gift, and reside outside of Canada, you will need to choose a courier (not Canada Post) to make sure it arrives in time.  DHL is our recommendation - most of their shipments take 3~4 business days and include tracking.  Dec 18th is the last day we recommend ordering for Christmas.

Tired of replacing the AA batteries in your transmitter?  We now carry these perfect sized lipoly transmitter packs!

November Updates

After a long wait, 33.3:1 and 22.2:1 Silver Spark motors are back in stock!

September Updates

Happy to report that tinyESCs are back in stock!

We will be closed again Sept 15-21 while we attend the Saskatoon Comic & Entertainment Expo and Kilobots XXXI!

August Updates

Heads-up everyone, we will be closed Sept 2-8 while we attend DragonCon and Robot Battles!

New feature!

We have added a new feature to the website - "Back in Stock" email notifications.  If an item is out of stock, you can easily click to have an email sent to you when it is available for purchase again.
(Since it is new, please let us know if you experience any difficulties with this feature!)

Back in stock: Cobra MiniSumo Chassis kits!

July Updates

New products!

In combat, drive motors get wrecked all the time.  Use our MiniQD Connectors and swapping motors is easy!
MiniQD Connectors are designed to fit perfectly onto the solder tabs of 16mm Spark gearmotors (or any FK-050 clones).  They click into place and will stay on even if your robot is bouncing around the arena!

This 15T Double-Wide Pulley allows TWO belts - one to a front and one to a rear wheel, or two to your weapon for extra strength.  The setscrew is sunken beneath the belt teeth so there is no need for a hub to stick out the side!

June Updates

Finally back in stock: Viper Combat Robot Kits!

If you're local, come out to the grand opening of Express Hobbies in Saskatoon this weekend!  The Saskatoon Combat Robotics Club will be holding a Kilobots tournament June 20th at 411 34th Street East.

May Updates

Just a quick note that we will be closed May 18-25 while we attend BattleBots™!  When we return, order shipping may still be delayed for several days while we move into our new larger location!

March Updates

RoboGames 2015 is fast approaching!  We will be traveling down to San Francisco for this huge event, and so will not be shipping orders placed after March 29 until we return on April 15.
Good luck to all the competitors!  See you there!

March 12 - Our big shipment of Snap Wheels has arrived!  So along with wheels being back in stock, all the Viper kits and SERVO kits are too!

February Updates

Feb 28 - Back from vacation! If all goes well, we should have every order shipping out Monday.

Feb 8 - A quick reminder that we will be on vacation Feb 9 - 27.  Orders placed during that time will ship when we return.

LOCAL MINISUMO TEAMS - If you are looking to buy a Cobra MiniSumo Chassis for the SIAST MyRobot Rumble, Express Hobbies in Saskatoon will be selling them for us while we are away!  (Their website is new so give them a call at 306-954-3434.)

Before we head out, there is just enough time to formally announce the new Cobra MiniSumo Chassis!

The Cobra now includes two on-board motor controllers, three QTI analog/digital line sensors, and a bright blue LED power indicator!

January 2015 Updates

It's a new year! Let's start it off right - with a new product!

The new and improved Viper Combat Robot kit is now available for purchase! Plenty of space and weight for upgrades, but strong enough as-is to be entered straight into a combat robot tournament!

To make it even better, these add-ons fit right onto the existing Viper robot chassis - no machining or soldering required!

Viper Lifter add-on

Take your Viper Combat Robot kit to the next level by adding a powerful servo-actuated lifting arm!

Viper Spinner add-on

Add a vicious horizontal spinner weapon to your Viper Combat Robot!

December Updates

We are running out of days in 2014! As the last big update of the year, we would like to introduce our newest distributor: Palden Technology!
Palden is located in Turkey and is our first reseller on the continent of Asia! Go check it out on the FingerTech Affiliates Map!

Boxing Day(s) Sale is now over!  Thanks to everyone who took advantage of the 20% discounts!

Hold on to your hats! This year's Boxing Day Sale will run for THREE days! For December 26, 27 and 28 we will be knocking 20% off of every RED FingerTech product!

* Product prices will be adjusted during those days.  No coupon codes required!

SparkFun now carries tinyESCs!  They have made a nice little introductory video:

Garolite and Snap Ring Pliers are now back in stock.

New product!
Finally, tinyMixers are available for purchase!  Besides allowing you to drive your robot with a single transmitter stick, it features a competition-legal failsafe and an Invert feature for when your bot gets flipped upside down!
And as you would expect from FingerTech, this is the smallest channel mixer you can buy!

November Updates

All ratios of Silver Spark motors are back in stock!

October Updates

  Thanks to you backers, the International RoboGames 2015 is a reality!

They will be professionally filming the heavyweight bracket so you can watch it at home!

FingerTech has teamed up with RoboGames to provide one of their rewards: A DIY Combat Robot Kit!  This kit can be used as a fully legal (and very competitive) entry into the insect fights at RoboGames!


A big box of parts just arrived!  Plenty of restock, plus one new product!

Restocked Products:

Micro & Mini Short Nutstrips

9T Pulleys

15T Pulleys

18T Pulleys

26T Pulleys

30T Bare (Weta) Pulleys

L-Bracket Motor Mounts

Snap Hubs 3mm x 0.5"

Introducing FingerTech Blade Hubs
FingerTech's Blade Hub is the best way to attach a blade to a shaft.  It uses a flange nut to hold the blade tightly, meaning you can use off-the-shelf sawblades without needing to drill screw holes into hardened steel!  Custom blades can be made stronger by not having those same mounting screw holes.

• The stepped design allows use of blades with different bore sizes (10mm, 16mm (5/8in), and 20mm).
• A big 8-32 setscrew attaches the hub to the flat on your weapon shaft.
• The hub comes to a soft point so that your horizontal spinner robot can rest on it without being pulled in different directions.

September Updates

The Asociacion Mexicana de Mecatronica (Mexican Mechatronics Asociation) is hosting a robotics contest October 30, 31 and November 1 and FingerTech Robotics is sponsoring some prizes towards it!
There is MiniSumo, Autonomous Vehicles, Line Following, and an Insect Race over uneven terrain.

Head to http://www.mecamex.org/ to sign up!

Canada Post "Tracked Packet" includes a tracking number so you can follow your shipment, and depending on location can be cheaper than the 2-day DHL option.

Small Packet Air has also been re-enabled as a cheap international shipping option (but does not include any tracking).

All ratios of Silver Spark and Gold Spark motors are back in stock!

FingerTech now stocks Grade 5 Titanium sheets!  Spinners getting through your armor?  Make it titanium!

May Updates

We are happy to announce another new product: FingerTech Snap Wheels!
Snap Wheels combine our very popular Snap Hubs with new LiteTech Treads (high-quality neoprene foam tires).
The result is a lightweight, shock-absorbing, high-traction solution for transferring power to the ground.
Diameters from 1.0-3.0" in 0.25" increments in two widths (0.5" and 0.75").  More size options than ever!

Also new is a small Snap Ring Plier to go along with the Snap Hubs retaining ring, for your convenience!

And to go along with that news, our 3mm x 0.50" and 4mm x 0.75" Snap Hubs are back in stock too!  (Still waiting for 3mm x 0.75" - soon!)

Please note that our offices will be closed May 1-9 while we attend the STEM Tech Olympiad 2014 in Miami, Florida.

We are very happy to announce a new distributor in Mexico!

Robotica-Dec carries FingerTech pulleys, belts, Spark motors, Mini-Sumo Wheels and Lite Hubs!

So much news!  We missed March updates due to an insane amount of restocking and reordering of product!  It all came in around the same time, so here is a huge list of the new and replenished items:

Restocked Products:

Mini-Sumo Wheels

Mecanum Wheels

3mm Ball Bearings

Channel Mixers

Pulleys & Belts


JST Connectors

Votlage tester

New Products:

Polycarbonate sheets!

Convenient 8x10" sheets in 1/16" and 1/8" thickness.
Polycarbonate is the most-used material for smaller combat robots thanks to its light weight and impact-absorbing properties. Grab some today!

We now carry XT60 connectors - to go along with six new lipoly battery sizes!

The Nanotech lipo packs have been very popular with their incredibly high discharge ratings (up to 130C!)
We now stock NINE sizes of 2S (7.4V) packs and FIVE sizes of 3S (11.1V) packs, from the incredibly tiny 120mAh to the huge 950mAh!

2S: 120, 180, 260, 300, 350, 370, 450, 460 and 950mAh.
3S: 180, 350, 370, 460, and 950mAh.

If you like driving "tank style" or just have a need for the throttle stick on your transmitter to be spring-return, we've now got you covered!

Rather than shipping your whole transmitter back to the factory and paying to have the stick changed, use this simple kit and do it yourself.

Our arms are lasercut locally, which means we can replicate any brand's arm shape. Just email us for custom requests!

For all the mini-sumo builders who need a control board for their Cobra Mini-Sumo Chassis, we now carry the Arduino Uno R3!

(It's okay if you don't build mini-sumo; Arduino's are useful for everything!)

Cobra Mini-Sumo Kit upgrades!
The three line sensors have added circuitry now, making them into QTI (Charge Transfer Infrared) sensors that can be used for either analog or digital line detection.

Simple servo connectors are used to interface the line sensors to your control board.

The motors are now pre-wired in parallel, making the robot even easier to assemble, with less wire clutter!
