    Information
    Behemoth is a robot that has continued to fight on 16 years after its first ever appearance on Robot Wars in 1998, it was built in Hemel Hempstead near London by brothers Anthony & Michael Pritchard and their friend Kane Aston. Behemoth's best moments in Robot Wars have been reaching the semi-finals of Robot Wars series 2 and finishing as runner-up to Razer in the First World Championship, but suffered from bad luck from Series 4 onwards where it has been very unlucky in competition. Behemoth is in its eighth incarnation today as Evolution VIII with improvements to virtually every aspect of the design but maintaining much of the original machine.

    Most recently Behemoth was seeded sixth in the 2014 UK Heavyweight Championships and won the 2014 Tag Team Championship with The Saint.

    Layout looks OK to me. For safety, I might suggest putting the LiPo in a battery box or secured down and in a fireproof bag.
