Jeeze, ok, they are not in the parts list because you don't need them. Even though you said you did...

I forgot to include the transistors in the parts list.  :-[
I will add it to the list as soon as possible. You can use any general purpose transistor(BC548 or BC547) for the robot. It is available at Futruelec.com for $0.10 each.

Anyways the robot can still be built for less than $40. ;D

Oh, HAHA!

Misunderstood completely!

Thought you meant you spent 40$ only (like on the 50$ robot) and then thought you must have forgotten something, didn't realize it was another robot!

Sorry,  :P

4 transistors for the tutorial

but I would buy more since they are useful

P.S. If you aren't done with the 40 dollar robot yet, what robot won you a prize , wasnt it the 40 dollar robot ?

then how did it work the 1st time if you couldn't put in the transistors( you didnt know which one to get)

Smash just admit that you never built it the first time

Lying isn't good. What's wrong with the fact that you didn't build one? It's not like we're going to make fun of you. I've only made the 50$ robot and ask noob questions nobody says anything.
Sorry this is kind of off-topic.

And yes, if you buy transistors buy like a pack. Shipping will still be more  ;D

P.S. LMAO we should like have a Airman vs. Smash faceoff section of the forum. Just for fun.
I need to like read all of Smash's posts and see if he really lied.  ;D

what can I say , I can detect liars very easily . I despise liars too, since they pretend to be something they are not . I hope this issue will not emerge anymore on this forum.  :-\

Back on topic

when buying from futurlec or from any store, browse around for parts you may need in the future. Transistors, mosfets, leds, switches , and wire connectors are things that are used a lot so buy in packs so you will not have to order in the future
