Welcome to FingerTech Robotics - Canada's leading manufacturer of RC hobby robotics parts.
Click on Products above to start shopping. Check back often for new products and sections!




December Updates

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!

August Updates

We will be closed Aug 27 through Sept 2 while we attend Robot Battles at Dragon Con!  Orders placed between will be shipped as soon as we return!


Hey customers, we just found out that NutStrip was showing as out-of-stock.  That has been fixed - we have plenty in stock for you!



For your viewing pleasure, we have created a Google Map listing all of our worldwide distributors PLUS all of the events that FingerTech sponsors. Check it out here!



July Updates


We are proud to announce a new distributor in Mexico!
Cosas De Ingenieria now carries a variety of FingerTech motors and wheels.
Go check them out!


We will be closed July 15 - 20 while the robot overlord gets married.  :)

We are trying out a new method of shipping for our international customers!
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!

June Updates

All sizes of Snap Hubs are back in stock!
Lite Hubs are back in stock!

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!)

Hello to everyone who is visiting thanks to Brad's streaming of LIVE COMBAT ROBOT EVENTS!
May 17 & 18, you should be watching his stream of RCX in California.  If you enjoy watching robot events from the comfort of your home, please click the donate button on his page so he can continue casting events!



April Updates

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

If you live anywhere close, you should definitely be attending!  Eight combat robot weight classes from the tiny 150 gram bots right up to 220lb heavyweight behemoths fighting non-stop for three days in three arenas! (May 4,5,6)

FingerTech Robotics is sponsoring this huge event with a ton of great prizes and will be a guest judge for a number of matches.

Orders placed between May 1-9 will begin shipping when we return.  Thank you for your patience.




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

Garolite

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!
