    This robot building is expensive!

    Hahhaa, that it is. I once totaled up how much my second version of The Honey Badger cost me. Close to about £400 but then again, I was things like a pricey transmitter at the time and such.

    Yeah lol, I managed to get a second hand DX6i for not too much, but between the ESC and everything else plus tools its cost a fair bit and this is just the prototype, got to get the HDPE next

    The thing is, as a one off, it is expensive, yes but you do end up reusing tools and components from one machine to the next as you go along. My Middleweight needs a new body but the parts from the current version can easily be transplanted so that will only cost me about £300 or 400 to get the parts and for me to machine them to make it work.

    Expenses wise, the worst part is always starting up. Once you're up & running it's not so bad & as Lucy said the vast majority of it can be reused & more expensive things like transmitters usually don't get damaged in combat. I've had a pretty rough run over the last couple of events (1 lipo fire, 1 other lipo die & multiple big hits from spinners) but once I've added it up it was less than half what I spent on the hotels for the events.

    Yeah most of it is reusable thankfully! Just gotta price up the HDPE once got the design finalised.

    LiPo and chargers ordered and dispatched from hobby king, so think I have everything I need now
