RoboGames 2013 was awesome as usual! Now that we are back and all the orders have been shipped, we are back to normal life. First up; a big shipment of Rhino lipo batteries arrived, so everything is back in stock there.
RoboGames 2013 is fast approaching! We will be traveling down to San Francisco for this huge event, and so will not be shipping orders placed after April 15 until we return on April 23.
Good luck to all the competitors! See you there!
Another new product!
Looking for a way to get more power from your servo? Want to run your robot's drive system off 11.1V or more, but the servo's limit is 9V? This 9V regulator will supply 9V from any battery up to 23V with more than enough power for even our strongest HXT12K metal gear servo!
So many new products! Today's is the Switch / Charge Jack that we have been supplying with the Viper kits. It makes charging your robots a breeze!
The battle is coming... Which side will you choose?
Show your support with a FingerTech T-Shirt!
To go along with the new kit, we now stock Servo Savers. Your lifters and clampers might take direct weapon hits - protect your servos with this!
Happy St. Patrick's Day! We are having a flash sale! Prices on our green items (garolite and sumo wheels) have been dropped by 15% to get you in the green spirit!
What a busy March! We just added a new line of lipoly batteries: the Nano-Tech series!
Higher continuous and burst current ratings, in even smaller and lighter packs!
We have been providing these simple push wire terminal blocks with the Viper kits for a while, but thought they might be useful for everyone. So they are now available in the store!
Our new Mini Power Switch is now available! You won't find another switch as small and robust as this. Activating your robot is now as simple as turning a screw!
We have gotten in a limited number of Bearing Blocks that include a slot for mounting any 12x10mm gearbox such as Sanyo micro motors. Just note in the Additional Comments section during checkout that you would like the modified blocks!
Our new Mecanum Wheels are finally available! They work much better (all metal design, no tweaking or lubrication required), look better (anodized red aluminum) and come assembled and tested. We are very excited to see how people put them to use!
Also to annouce: FingerTech Sumo Wheels are officially available! Sizes of 1.75", 2.00", 2.50", and 3.00", and colors of Red, Green, Blue, Purple, Yellow, Brown, Orange and Black.
Wow we had a busy Boxing Week! December 2012 was our best month ever thanks to you, our loyal customers! It's now halfway into January, but you should already know that when the news page doesn't get updated, it's because we are busy filling orders and/or preparing awesome new products!
Firstly, if you don't subscribe to SERVO Magazine (why not?), here is a build report from one of our customers on his new 150g combat robot "Keres". Because of the extreme size and weight contraints, Keres uses tinyESCs, prototype Mini-Spark gearmotors (read his SERVO review here), and has just added a prototype FingerTech Power Switch. If you haven't heard about the Mini-Sparks or Power Switches, you should be following our Facebook page!
We are also busy preparing the new FingerTech Sumo Wheels! They will be available in sizes of 1.75", 2.00", 2.50", and 3.00", in Shore A20 and A45 (for rougher applications than sumo), and in colors of Red (standard), Green, Blue, Purple, Yellow, Brown and Black. Plus we can drill out the center hole to any size and even key it for you!
