• Like our Banana For Scale? Now you can have a set of extremely portable, infinitely versatile, adhesive-backed smaller vinyl versions, without that pesky third dimension.
• Yes, these stickers are actually TO SCALE! The larger sticker's scale is 1/2cm & 1/4in squares. The smaller sticker uses 1/4cm & 1/8in squares.
• Has your robot been lacking a high-current power switch? Tired of plugging and unplugging the battery during an intense competition?
• Our Mini Switch can be activated with the simple twist of an allen key.
• No other switch is as small, lightweight and powerful!
Our specialty Timing Pulleys and Belts are the perfect solution for transmitting power from motors to wheels or shafts.
While O-Rings and round belts will slip under tension, timing belts have teeth that ensure a positive lock to the pulleys.
Ten pulley sizes means there are 55 different ratio combinations to choose from!
Use with FingerTech Timing Belts, or any other 3mm pitch belt.
• S3M pitch (3mm high-torque)
• Belt Width (maximum): 4mm
• Sizes: 9 Teeth - 42 Teeth
• Bore: 3mm (9T, 15T and 16T can be drilled up to 5/32", larger pulleys can be drilled up to 1/4")
This double-wide pulley allows TWO belts - one to a front and one to a rear wheel, or two to your weapon for extra strength!
• Belt Width (maximum) : 8mm
• Size: 15 Teeth
• Bore: 3mm - Can be drilled up to 7.14mm (9/32")
Timing pulleys and belts are the best way to transmit power from your motor to drive wheels or a spinning weapon.
A range of thirty-two belt sizes allows you to design your robot then pick a belt, rather than the other way around!
Use with our FingerTech S3M pulleys, or any other 3mm pitch pulley.
•S3M pitch (3mm high-torque)
•Circumferences: 120mm (40T) - 408mm (136T).

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 clamp mount with two screws attaches the hub to your weapon motor shaft. (Remember to apply thread-lock.) (This replaces the 8-32 setscrew in the previous version.)
• The hub has a 6-32 threaded hole so that your horizontal spinner robot can rest on a screw head and not be pulled in different directions when the blade spins. Also useful for supporting the hub's far side in vertical spinners.
• High-quality neoprene foam tires mated with our popular Twist Hubs give you a lightweight, shock-absorbing, high-traction solution for transferring power to the ground.
• Unlike hobby airplane wheels, the diameter will always be accurate and the material won't change between batches.
• Diameters from 25.4mm-76.2mm (1.0in-3.0in) in 6.35mm (0.25in) increments.
• Widths of 12.7mm and 19.1mm (0.5in and 0.75in)
• Wheels sold in pairs.
Note: Snap Hubs are being replaced by our new and improved Twist Hubs. We've ordered one last batch for people to buy spares, but we will not be carrying Snap Ring Pliers anymore so Snap Hubs are not recommended for new projects.
• Foam wheels are the preferred choice for combat robots because they absorb impacts and save your drive motors from stripping teeth!
• Combine with our FingerTech Foam Wheels, or if you already have Lite Flites (or their thinner counterpart Lectra Lites) they can be used with Snap Hubs too!
• With Snap Hubs, you can easily and securely mount these foam tires to your robot.
• The foam tire is held tightly by a custom washer, and features a recess to keep the snap ring from getting hit by weapons.
• The hub is secured to the motor shaft by a strong 8-32 setscrew.
• Available with 3mm and 4mm shaft bore, but can be drilled out as big as 6.35mm (0.25in).
• Make sure to choose the correct Thin/Wide size to match your wheels.
• This polycarbonate key will let you lock and unlock your FingerTech Twist Hubs without scratching the anodized surface.
• Shaped to allow motor shafts to protrude through the wheel.

These speed controllers are perfectly matched to our own line of Gold Spark and Silver Spark motors, Copals, Sanyos, B16s, B62s, Kitbots 1000RPM, etc. For the short operating times of robots, anything up to 5A stall can be run by tinyESCs.
New Red-Green-Blue color cycling LED!
• Most events require clearly visible power indicator LEDs to know if your robot is on or off. These make it easy by plugging right into your receiver!
• Superbright LEDs are highly visible. Come in five six colors: Red, White, Blue, Yellow, Green, and Multi-Color!
• Includes a panel mount clip for easy installation.
Don't like 2-stick "tank" steering? Need a stick free for weapon control? Using a gyro for drive stabilization?
The tinyMixer combines the "left/right" (Aileron) and "up/down" (Elevator) channels of a single stick into two individual drive channels. This allows you to maneuver the robot with just one thumb, leaving the other open for weapon control.
New Invert function! If your robot gets flipped upside down but is still drivable, you can invert the controls and drive it as if it were still right-side-up. Alternatively, you can invert while right-side-up and make the back of the robot into the front. This can be useful if your robot has both a weapon and a wedge and you want to attack with the other.
• Smallest and lightest R/C channel mixer available that includes an Invert function for both Mixed/No-Mix driving modes.
• Includes a proper failsafe and is legal for combat robot competitions.
• Bright blue status LED can double as power indicator.
• Read the tinyMixer review in SERVO Magazine!
