    The Fighting Robots Association is the governing body for robotic combat and competition. Featuring robots that have competed in Robot Wars, Battlebots, Technogames and others our members make up a strong community of roboteers dedicated to the sport.
    As a professional organisation established in 2003 we oversee the safety of the sport. In addition to maintaining rules for building, fighting and judging competition robotics we provide a community for our members including an online forum and website.

    Aims 


    Promotion and education of all things to do with robots, of all weights, shapes and sizes.
    To provide consistency with regard to open event safety, arenas and robot build rules.
    To centralise communications, in effect be a library of contacts and to promote the sport.
    To encourage the set up of regional meeting clubs, that are either part of the FRA or affiliated to the FRA.
    To endeavour to work with other countries associations for the betterment of our sport.
    To represent roboteer interests in negotiations with other bodies.
    To generally make the roboteers lot a better one.

    Smaller combat robots maybe?

    Is that foam / sponge tread? More experienced Beetleweighters will have to step in if I'm wrong, but they seem a little too lightweight to me.

    That's just crazy talk - what could be a higher priority than combat bots?

    Bullfrog isn't sold yet. The previous highest bidder realised that life has other priorities...

    Yeah, don't cut the ground wire, you need that to reference the data signal. Also you don't have to cut them. There is a little flap you can pull up to

    Wiring and Connectors

    We don't use Andersons anymore.
    Too large and heavy compared to the other options, like EC8, EC5 or XT90 connectors.


    Electronics,

    You usually cut the red wire to turn off the BEC power supply from the esc to the receiver (when you have a black, white and red wire).
