Hi smckelvie

Currently MechRC does not support the addition of any sensors. Maybe if you want to get into reprogramming the controller you may be able to add some.

According to the MechRC user guide page 9 (or 2:9 on the PDF) you can get
1. "Body Kits:
A range of highly detailed
body kits, designed by leading
robot artists, are available to
give your robot a whole new
look."

2. "Electronic Expansion:
The MechRC control module
allows users to experiment
and build their own electronic
peripherals."

3. "Mechanical Expansion:
The modular design of the
robot's chassis allows you to
easily add additional servos
and mechanical components.
AND
4. "MechRC control module:
The control module contains
a 1 6 - b i t h i g h s p e e d
c ont ro l l e r that can be
upgraded to provide extended
functionality."

As yet i have not been able to find any of the above But i E-mailed a couple o people and hope to hear from them
I will let you know

I'm pretty sure development on the MechRC is on permanent hiatus.
