    Looks good, well done. Guessing a pair of drills for the drive and and linear actuator for the jaw?

    I am afraid not. So the recent (upcoming) law change has pretty much made running BotFest 4 impossible to do in its current form. The exemption around team sports only applies if the governing...

    I realise this is a long shot but could we move the event to this Saturday, before the new rules come into force?

    Fighting robotics, I would argue, is a sport in the sense that it is highly organised, has the same type of rules and structure in place as you would football or cricket or whichever traditional...

    The assumption was that everyone who signed up would attend. If there are dropouts for whatever reason, I can always shuffle them around to balance things out as best I can. I did the draw ahead of...

    Please find attached the group draws, please tell me if you have two or more robots in the same group but I don't think that is the case here. As previous events, it will be a "everyone...

    I dunno. I think it rather depends on the event organiser. Even when I was new to the Ant Freeze events, the drive wasn't checked as far as I recollect. Either way, we are talking 35 entrants to this...

    I've been to over a dozen antweight events & have never had the drive failsafe checked. I imagine it's mostly a time saving thing, since some events recently have actually ran over the time the venue...

    I've only ever been to Ant Freeze events where the drive isn't checked as far as I recall but good point. Beetles definitely will need their drive checking I agree. The tech sheet was written in the...
