    I don't disagree with that proposition but there are only so many slots you can have in a show. Accommodating 3 weight classes is the issue here. I know EXR were running Featherweight fun time warm...

    When I was last at Maidstone in 2017, there were two FW melees per show, not one and so the choice to not fight a spinner was there. I suspect that to include Middleweights, this might be why it was...

    Oh I was wrong... so wrong with this one... So far, this year, I've clocked 4,086 miles, not including the BotFest events which is reasonably close to me. Cheltenham is a weekend thing, so...

    In my Beetleweight robots, I have been known to glue down my removable links to the body but in The Honey Badger, I clamped it down with a small cut of polycarbonate. The XT60 connector in that needs...

    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 featherweight at the moment as Azriel is in bits...

    Yup. Staggered into the house and had a long tea. I've definitely had a tough year, especially with this MW robot. I think what it is comes down to a few factors. The biggest one is that I am...

    EXR Maidstone 2019 Maidstone happened. It was a 3am get up and didn't get home until midnight with 3 hours sleep behind me (though I had 14 hours the night before). I think this wins the award at...

    Welcome to the forum! Nice looking bot. Fuses as links is OK, I've seen this in the Featherweight class. 3mm aluminium will stand up to most things in a BW arena, better than mine did :P

    I need to get Azriel ready for EXR Cheltenham anyway so if it survives that, I might put in for Robodojo but likely at Full Combat rather than Sportsman. Depends on how I feel about it. A whiteboard...

    "Neat and elegant". Not words I would ascribe to that version of the Badger. :P It did the job, even stood up to the likes of Neon for a few brief moments before the wheels came off. TBH, it was a...

    Yeah, gotta make toast in the arena :P I can't think of a rule where it wouldn't be allowed in, perhaps just not buttered as that would probably count as a liquid. I did a mezzanine floor in The...

    Ah yes, I forgot about For the Love of Sci-Fi. I am sure I entered that with Azriel. Gonna need to start (re)building it then. :P

    Neat write up. The wheels definitely appear to help but as a suggestion, you may wish to limit the amount of throw in the TX to make it more drivable? It is something I do in Jibril which has...

    Some updates Azriel I am going to put Azriel on hold until after the MW championships. I don't think I'll have time to work on it before Cheltenham. That being said, I am thinking of completely...

    Looks like good progress so far. I don't think it'll be that cozy though, Azriel is pretty tight in there for the moment with 2x batteries, a block of ESCs and still need to fit in an axe mechanism,...

    Oooohhh, the progress looks good. U:AF looks like it will look amazing in the arena. Just be careful of 3D printing the wheels. Lets Dance, which is a fully 3D printed robot, doesn't seem to handle...
