    Information
    DTK was originally built as the fourth version of Dantomkia created by Mike Lambert from Chertsey, Surrey. It was sold to Team Batter in mid 2006 (as Dantomkia) who helped it win the 2006 Annihilator, finish 4th in the 2007 UK Championships and 2nd the following year. It was also under ownership of Andy Steels of Team Hydra before selling it back to Team Batter again in 2013. Due to original creator of Dantomkia, Mike Lambert having built a new version of his machine, it was renamed to DTK to distinguish it from the other. Since 2015, John Bell retired from fighting with robots so he donated his robot to John Findlay of Roaming Robots. DTK's weapon is a powerful flipper which can really pack a punch against other robots.

    Ouch, hope your accident didn't result in anything too severe?

    Updates look good, getting something to work reliably

    Hi Colin. The exhaust silencer sounds like a great idea When we were kids we used to put 'Cherry Bombs' on our Mini's, a robot themed one of those

    Sounds great! Is going to be very distinctive to look at but you've also got a nice big box shape to fit everything in. Look forward to seeing it take
