Thread: RX-64 group purchase

    RX-64 group purchase

    We've all seen them. We all covet them. Now, how do we get some ?

    I was wondering if there's any interest in several potential builders pooling their funds for a group purchase of many RX-64s. We may be able to negotiate a better price if ordering fifty or so. That's only a few mechs worth. Robotis sells the devices in bulk for $210 each (for six). That doesn't include horns or cables. Think we could get them for $180-$190 each by ordering a lot ? Seems in the realm of possibility. Yes, we would all need to find a way to trust each other.

    At that approximate price level, who is interested and for how many ? Of course, we should give Trossen the first bite at that apple in return for hosting us.

    Yes, you should build him one

    Keep in mind, Big Blue Saw is already more than capable of making more of those brackets. They already did the conversion for their waterjet machine

    I'm also more than willing to help people out with designing different brackets for use with the RX-64s, if there are any more than you need. Would take me maybe 20 minutes to build up a different type.
