    This will probably sounds a stupid question but I'm planning to do theme robot tournament in the future based on my sister & my brother-in-law's wedding which was in bled - slovenia on July 11th 2013, I wanted to based my lightweights & middleweights on families & friends who went to bled - Slovenia & other families & friends who went to the barn in lowersoft & the plan is to get families & friends to drive the robots that I build based on them in a live tournament. My middleweights & lightweight would be stored some at home & others in storage units.


    theres two reason's why I mad enough to do this:-

    1) to show people what it be like if teams too many robots in a space of a year (or more)

    2) I would love to be in a genies book of records



    so my question is, is my idea good idea to people what would it be like to build too may robots & would need to include featherweights in to my idea robot tournament in the future?

    Whilst I admire your enthusiasm, I think you need to learn a few things:

    Firstly, the parts that are readily available in England are geared towards Featherweights, for which there a lot of events all over the place. If you are going to build robots for your family to use, and you don't want to do them as small as ants or beetles, then I would highly recommend building a FW rather than a Light or Middleweight. Besides, at least then you can use them at the live events.

    I have also noticed that you haven't actually built a robot yourself, so I would highly recommend getting yourself to an event and finding out HOW to build them before you set about building multiple robots.

    Also, it's spelt Guiness .

    if youre doing something like this, beetleweights would be far easier and cheaper

    Try that in Belgium. We have only a 1000 or so commercial beers, and a gazillion homebrews.
