Phew! We finally made it through a busy FIRST Tech Challenge Kickoff, where thousands and thousands of Glyphs and Relics made it to some very eager teams. We're really looking forward to seeing what they come up with.  And then the FIRST Robotics Competition crew dropped their awesome teaser for next year's game, FIRST® POWER UPSM

We've rolled out a lot of new parts for these smaller robots, but we've got a few things we think you'll like as well.
REV Extrusion
1" REV Extrusion Back In Stock

REV's 1" extrusion building system is designed around #10 screws and jam nuts, making it easy to assemble structures quickly.  It's been out of stock for part of the summer, and now it's back in a 4' length that's easier to ship.

To make assembling extrusion structures even easier, we've got you covered with plenty of gusset, motor mounting, and linear motion parts in stock and ready to ship!
How are your batteries looking?

The Battery Beak is an indispensable tool for fast diagnosis of your battery health!  Plug it right into your SB-50 connector, press the button, and get instant details on your battery's state of charge, voltage at different loads to sniff out surface charges, and internal resistance that can be tracked as the battery ages.  That GIF? It's in real-time--fast enough that you can even check your alliance partners in the queue.

As off-season events ramp up, now is the perfect time to instill good practices with your team (and figure out whether you need new batteries before the season gets underway).  Get a Battery Beak in your toolbox, and never lose a match because of dead batteries again!
