    Information
    Bamm Bamm is a Dutch heavyweight robot that was built in 2001 by Erik Cornelissen, Rien Groenenwegen and Con Taal. It was first entered into robot combat in the Dutch Series of Robot Wars where in Series 1 it beat Lizzard in its Heat final before losing to them after meeting again in the Grand-final. In Series 2, it came back where despite losing the first round was given a Wild card into the Grand-final where it lost to Philipper 2. It also entered the UK Seventh Wars where it was beaten in the first round of its heat by Firestorm 5. Bamm Bamm was named after the cartoon character from the Flintstones and had the destructive nature of it to match with its axe which could attack in any direction.

    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.
