    Information
    Ansgar 3 is a German heavyweight robot that was built in 2003 by the Thomsen family from Ahrienviol. The first versions of the machine fought in the International competitions of Robot Wars as did the 3rd. The first Ansgar took part in the Second World Championships where it was beaten by Manta. It was rebuilt again for the German Robot Wars as Ansgar's Revenge where it was eliminated in the first round of its heat. Ansgar 3 qualified for the 3rd World Championships held at the end of the UK Seventh series of Robot Wars where it lost in the first round to Storm 2. Ansgar 3 was originally built as a walker and had a spinning blade weighing 10kg, but for the live events (which the majority of which don't cater for those weapons), it was rebuilt to being wheeled and having ramming spikes.

    To echo what others have said, that is a great effort for a first build, well done. Using a piece of velcro to hold the link/fuse in place is fine; I

    The trouble with Robodojo is that it is on a Sunday and I am generally not available on Sundays otherwise I would come. I've also not got a functional
