    Hey there, welcome to the forum!

    I am on the wrong side of the country to be able to answer this with regards to socials but one of the easiest way to get started is to go to a live show to get a feel of the events and see some fighting robots in action. You don't note where in the east you are but there are a few events coming up. There is Extreme Robots in Maidstone (27th - 28th October) and Extreme Robots Gloucester (10-11th November). A little short notice but there is also Robots Live! in Stevenage (this weekend).

    Hi Karen, where about's in the East? I'm in Lincolnshire, happy to help where I can.
    There is a venue in Leeds which has started once a month.
    I would also seriously consider a Bw robot (see my comments earlier to Daniel in this thread.
    Hope this helps

    Hi Ian,
    Is the meeting just Ant Weights or will there be a Beetle Weight competition also?
    Regards Cliff

    I have been tinkering aound in the garage and l aready have 2 cordless drills etc so I thought why not have a go.
    I'd also recommend taking a look at the build diaries as they contain a wealth of information about what works and what doesn't work with regards to electronics/batteries/materials. My first attempt of The Honey Badger used a couple of cordless drill motors, though I do recommend making or finding some motor mounts to seat them into.

    Extreme Robots also did a Youtube video about how to build a basic featherweight for less than £200 at one stage, that shows the basics of how a featherweight is constructed.
