    Hi. Does anyone know if Tiberius can self right? I found some pictures of the guts inside, and there are what look like extra hydraulic rams. I've sort of caught the gist of how the robot works, but wondered if it can role itself over? Or is it run at events literally as is? It's my fav all time robot lol.

    Nice to see you back dave
    Tiberius was invertible for a time, having drive wheels on its back as well, but that made the claw a bit useless. Somewhere between 2006 and 2009 Sam put a self-righter on it, but it was a bit naff as time went on, next to useless in the 2016 champs.

    Haha thanks. Been away for a year finishing my degree. Moving house and getting married next. Planning on bringing the wooden magic of Rancid back next spring lol. Either that or build another naff wooden robot.

    I was looking at Youtube vids and noticed someone changed the name to Photon Storm. I've since seen the self righter lol.

    The self-righter was originally operated by a cable linkage off the arm, but at some point before it went to Battlebots a hydraulic ram was put on it to make it independant and more reliable.
