    Well, I'm working on a new Beetleweight robot to add to my collection. It's basically going to be a 2-wheel wedgebot. Sort of like this:

    I'm not sure if anyone has yet been able to experiment with the 3 pound class yet, but if so, does anybody know what kind of motors and speed controller would be good for this kind of robot?

    Thanks

    a sabertooth 2x12 (maybe even 2x5) would work for a speed controller, my mate harry uses mfa como drill motors

    look at the general chatter section for more info on the uk beetle weight movement some good pics there etc

    btw i think the creators (in the UK) are imposing a compulsory active weapon rule in order to compete
