    Information
    Turbulence is a heavyweight robot that was built originally by both Ed Wallace and Dave Moulds from Birmingham. It was first built in 2004 where from there on it has done really well in live events as it has proved time again flipping a lot of robots out of the arena. Turbulence also won the 2006 UK Championships which were held at Wicksteed Park in Kettering. Turbulence is well known by robot fans for its sleek shape and powerful weapon which doesn't just make it look good, it has also made it a force to be reckoned with in the arena.
