    All my fights are up on YouTube and FB page. One or two worth a watch. lol. Wish to thank everyone for welcoming me, the robot and my family to the event. Despite a few problems with them being under 16....

    Massive shout out to the Coopers, realise I wasn't first choice and was only there to make up the numbers. But hopefully Luna-Tic offered some unique drama and entertainment. I loved every minute, the "anti-robot wars wife" even said she enjoyed it and has a new love for the sport and community. LT is battered and bruised but not out yet!! Roll on more fights!!

    Well what an event! Thank you all ever so much for supporting us and coming along! There were so many epic battles, it was a really good championships with one half of team Carbide vs team Eruption meeting again. I was really impressed by the quality of the machines this year so i wanted to let you know we are always excited to see what you guys turn up with. Well done. Congratulations to the Eruption boys for a well deserved win taking on all those spinners! Well done Dave with 722. Proving its still a lethal machine. Well done Adam with Amnesia. Very well driven machine! Finally congratulations to Dennis with Equinox for taking a well deserved Annihilator Trophy and Rory with Aegis for a stand out performance in the Gladiator! Congratulations.

    A big thanks also goes out to the judges and those who helped set up & take down. We really appreciate it.

    Finally we are already putting together plans for next year. I think the event as a whole with the seating, sound and graphics on all those screens was a real step up. We are working on how we can make things even better for next year. We are mulling through plans for the arena and we will certainly be looking at both the competition & build rules to make amendments.

    Well done everyone and thank you again! Oh in all the excitement we forgot to give out prize money to the podium positions of the championship. I'll paypal you 3 later

    Thanks for a great event James (and the rest of the team of course!)

    On a personal note it wasn't a great event from myself/ my machines (plus the related stress issues I'm sure most people spotted and apologise to anyone caught up in that) however the event itself was absolutely brilliant - the screens and general presentation made it far beyond any events I've seen to date imho, absolutely stellar job to everyone involved!

    I wanted to say a huge thanks to all the Roboteers (Not Modellers!!!) for not only putting up an epic event but also for helping me, taking the time to answer my newbie questions and not beating me with a Robot for calling them Models.


    Also big thanks to the Judges for being the little voice in my ear making sure I understand the rules and regulations.


    I’ve done commentating at numerous Model Helicopter events over the years and I have to say that this was the most rewarding and challenging commentating I have had the pleasure of doing.


    Once again thanks to all the incredibly patient roboteers and good luck with future battles

    Cheers

    Mike

    Thanks to Robo Challenge and all of the roboteers for an amazing event!

    It was my first ever robot combat event - nothing like throwing myself in at the deep end! I was made to feel very welcome by other roboteers who were very complimentary of our first attempt at a 'bot and provided loads of advice that'll go into a new one. Special thanks to my 'bench buddies' from Venator, Scruffy and Impact for spurring me on to get Battleaxe bent back into a sort of shape for Monday's whiteboard after the hiding it took from 722 on the Saturday.

    Also thanks to Robo Challenge for hosting a great show - Will definitely be back again for a future event!

    Time to get designing and building again
