We would like to have a fixed course of fire for qualification training. Can MotoShot run on a consistent path?

Yes. We are pleased to announce our most recent upgrade option to MotoShot... MotoTRAX. MotoTrax are a Train-rail like tracking system that will follow a fixed course that you decide. Click HERE to see a video and learn a bit more.

We are thinking of getting the Hit/Stop/Fall feature but cannot go down range to reset the target, what can we do?

The Fall feature can be easily disabled for training times where it is not appropriate or practical to go down range to reset the target. It's always better to have the system built with all options, and disable certain options when not needed. Although systems can be upgraded at a later date it is much simpler and more cost effective to make those decisions up front.

Do I need to program my remote/robot?

No. Your Robot will come to you fully programmed. No additional programming necessary. The remote manual has been included only as a reference tool in the unlikely event that your unit will need service.

What frequency does the remote operate on?

The Spread Spectrum Digital remote operates in the 2.4GHz band (that's 2400MHz). This high frequency offers a significant advantage as it is well out of the range of model-generated radio interference (like motor and ESC noise). The DSS remote system uses Direct Sequencing Spread Spectrum modulation to generate a wide signal on a single frequency. The FCC requires that these systems be smart incorporating collision avoidance such that when a system is turned on, it scans the 2.4GHz band and selects a channel that is not being used, then begins transmitting on that unused channel. 79 channels are available and the odds of one DSS remote system interfering with another are astronomically remote. The 2.4GHz spectrum has a capacity of 99 channels. In the unlikely event that the spectrum is full, the 80th system will not connect or cause any interference going into hold scan until a channel is free.

How long will the battery last on MotoShot TCR-921?

The TCR-920 Quick Exchange Battery pack will have provided approximately two hours continuous run time when fully charged. Target weight and range terrain can affect battery run time slightly. It is recommend to charge the Quick Exchange Battery pack after each use. Do not fully deplete the battery. ALWAYS unplug the battery when system not in use.

How long will the battery last on MotoShot TCR-925?

The TCR-914 Quick Exchange Battery pack will have provided approximately two hours continuous run time when fully charged. Target weight and range terrain can affect battery run time slightly. It is recommend to charge the Quick Exchange Battery pack after each use. Do not fully deplete the battery. ALWAYS unplug the battery when system not in use.

Can I buy a spare battery for MotoShot?

Absolutely. Please go to our products page and then click on Accessories for the details.

Can I use more than one target on MotoShot ?

Yes. MotoShot TCR 921/925 are rated for up to 50/100lbs. respectively. The U channel design accepts multiple target brackets. Additional brackets are available, part numer TCR-919. Target brackets should be mounted closest to the center of the length U channel for best performance.

What is MotoShots' remote range?

MotoShot's standard remote range is 1000 meters line of sight. However, we do have a Long Range option. Please contact us if you would like a quote of to upgrade your current system.

Can I run more than one MotoShot at a time?

Yes. Each MotoShot Robot uses a 2.4 GHz digital spread spectrum remote that has been factory bonded and paired. Multiple units can be operated at the same time.
​​

What happens if I run MotoShot into something?

The battery fuse may blow if you run MotoShot into something hard. This fuse is easily replaced and is located on the battery pack connection lead. A 30 amp mini fuse is required.
​​

What if MotoShot gets shot?

We have a replacement program for any shot parts. For a nominal charge any part of MotoShot can be replaced. Please contact us at 866-580-4284 or customerservice@motoshot.com for a price list.
​​

How well does the 2 wheel drive MotoShot handle a rough/unimproved range?

MotoShot is designed to maneuver over semi-improved to smooth surfaces. If you have concerns about the terrain consider upgrading the standard two wheel drive to four wheel. The four wheel MotoShot will handle 100lbs. of targets and traverse over rough terrain with ease.

Do you offer demo’s of your MotoShot Systems?

We do offer a Demo of our 921 System. We only offer a Demo on this MotoShot System primarily due to logistics. All other MotoShot Systems are heavier, generally shipped on a pallet. The Demo Program is for 30 day periods in which you can get a chance to use the MotoShot, get a feel for its maneuverability and ease of operation. It’s a great option for when departments need to go through a “mock training” and demonstration a training drill to justify the procurement.

What is the difference between the Elite and the Elite Armored?

The standard Elite is handgun rated and the Elite Armored is constructed from NIJ LevelIII Armor and is Rifle Rated.
High points of the industrial system:
System is ballistically protected
Low maintenance
Long Run Time

Are the systems build-able meaning can I buy accessories at a later time/budget cycle?

Yes, with the exception of the Gallery Mode.

Can I swap out the accessories as I go?

Yes, we have standardized all MotoShot accessories mounts so that they can be easily swapped out. It is a good idea to have a 3/4" wrench on hand.

What are the different accessories?

All the accessories were developed to enhance the moving target training system and allow training to progress from just a moving target to more dynamic and realistic scenarios. We have group the accessories into training categories.
Decision Making
Threat Identification
Use of Force
Tactical Response
Marksmanship
OC Spray Deployment
Follow Through

Will the Hit Sensing Targets work with rifle rounds?

Yes, MotoShot's Hit Sensing technology is reactive to all live fire rounds as well as NLTA.
How long are my quotes valid?

Can I switch out the 3D Target with the Steel Target?

Yes, we offer a standardized mounting system in which accessories and targets can quickly and easily be swapped out.

How does the Hit Stop Feature work?

MotoShot has developed a hit sensor that, once a shot is detected on the 3D Target, stops the Robot. The Robot can then be started again via the remote. All MotoShot Systems are “prewired” for this technology but require the purchase of either a Hit Sensor or Fall System to activate it.

What is the Fall System?

The Fall System works in conjunction with the Hit Stop and offers an additional level of realism above and beyond just the stopping of the Robot. With the Fall System once a shot is detached on the 3D Target, the Robot will stop and the target will immediately collapse.

You mentioned MotoShot has two modes of operation, can you explain what they are?

In the primary mode MotoShot is a "running man" system in which the robot is operated via a handheld remote in any direction, operates out to 1000 meters and offers variable speed.
In the "gallery" mode MotoShot becomes a "track system". A simple track with a magnetic end point is placed laterally or in charging position on the range. With a flip of the switch on the handheld remote MotoShot will run continually on this track back and forth or charging forward and reverse. The feature is often used when a repeated course of fire is desired and typically using paper targets. Once in the gallery mode no remote operator is required.
The Gallery Feature must be purchased at the time of the original purchase and cannot be added on later.
So the system will have Gallery Mode but I can bolt on the other accessories later? Yes, Gallery Mode is enabled and disabled right at the remote and requires no tools or downtime when returning to "running man" mode of operation.

Can I use the hit reactive targets in Gallery Mode?

No, only static or fixed targets may be used when the system is in Gallery Mode.

Can I use the Target Turner as a stand-alone piece of equipment?

Yes, the MotoShot Bi-Directional Paper Target Turner is a system that can be used as both a stand-alone system or can be quickly and easily mounted to the top of any MotoShot Target System. ¾” wrench required.

Can I mount the 3D Target Dropper to my MotoShot?

No, the 3D Target Dropper is a unique and independent system that cannot be mounted to a MotoShot Moving Target System.

What is the difference between the dropping targets on the movers and the 3D Target Dropper?

The 3D Target Dropper base is a static system and does not move. The Hit Sensor can be set to detect and respond to a specific # of target strikes between 1-10. The hit reactive dropping targets on the movers are reactive to one hit. Typically the 3D Target Dropper is used in a shoot house.
