Great weapon on Viper!

- 26th August 2018

My son coupled this weapon with a viper kit. Very effective, took second place in his very first contest. See the blade working successfully here: https://youtu.be/U9RtZ-0UPhU

Powerful but unreliable

- 09th February 2018

I've used this kit on two separate bots now, both of which were 2wd undercutters. The main issue is that the hub mounts directly to the motor shaft. While this does allow for a VERY powerful weapon, it results in the motor shaft becoming a critical weak point in the weapon system. I've sheared four motor shafts using this kit.
[FTR: The Viper and its add-ons are ripe for upgrading once you've broken them in! Some builders have replaced the stock motor shafts with hardened dowel pins to solve that particular issue.]


- 25th December 2015

I had the opportunity to see at least two Viper kits using the spinner add-on at Robothon 2015 earlier this year. Both bots lost their spinners in both matches each of them competed in. The one that competed in the antweight rumble also lost its spinner there. The blade itself is quite good(as Cyclone from NERC has showcased), but the system as is admittedly has proven to be less than impressive. [FTR: Blade Hub is already being redesigned away from setscrew to clamp mount!]

I entered the robot with a spinner and got 1st place

FingerTech 'Viper' Combat Robot KitFingerTech 'Viper' Combat Robot Kit - 198.20 CAD

Note Nov 28: Limited number in stock!  Until more Twist Hub Keys arrive, once these are gone you can buy the Viper with Snap Hubs by using  THIS product.

Updates!  The Viper now uses our new and improved Twist Hubs!  It also includes a JST-to-9V Adapter cable so you can power it with a 9V battery instead of a lipoly battery (saving you the cost of battery and charger until you are ready to upgrade!).  We've also updated the sticker.  :)

• The Viper Combat Robot Kit is quite simply the best way to get into combat robotics. You will not find a cheaper robot kit with this functionality and expandability anywhere else.

• The Viper kit comes with everything you need to get started in competitive robotics:

- Chassis, motors, wheels, speed controllers, armor, and an easy to follow instruction manual.  Radio and lipoly battery options are available if you need them too.

• Once you've mastered the basics, upgrade your kit to a Lifter or a Spinner with optional add-ons!
