Additional batteries for the Wedgebot are coming soon (different package style).
Robots battery run time is about 3 minutes plenty for an antweight fight The playables are safe and fun!
Do they failsafe? YES! They failsafe should the TX turn off or loose power.

What is great about these robots is you essentially get a full setup ready to go. Once you have had enjoyment with the robot as it is and want to change, you have the electronics ready for you to design and print/make your own chassis.
