    Hi Adam, I'll most likely have a clusterbot ready for Botfest & I'll need a second driver so if want you're welcome to drive it, especially if you don't have a bot yet.

    Also there's an event called Robonerd in Wolverhampton on 31st August you may be interested in. There's lots of tournaments for smaller weight classes, heavyweights on display & a lot more stuff going on. If you're looking to learn that could be a good place to start.

    Yeah that would be wicked I have brought a Nuts and Bolts Ant Weight axe bot so might see how i get on with that but a cluster bot sounds fun!

    I always knew some events went on but never knew this many, will look at that Robonerd as nice and close for me

    Awesome! Those Shakey kit bots are surprisingly competitive. I have one of those axe bots myself & have made it to the 7th round in 3 of the last 4 Antweight World Series events with it. I've signed it up for Botfest so maybe we can have an axe off. I believe Robonerd will have an open arena for antweights so if you go you can bring it along for practice.

    P.S. Lucy sorry for spamming all over your thread.

    Hahhaa, no worries, good to see folks chatting away. :P

    To give an idea of what the event looks like, here is the video from BotFest 2.

    With just over 5 weeks until BotFest 3, a new arena floor has arrived and yes, it is a 810x810mm single piece of plywood which I'll get painted and detailed at some point next week. Next thing on the list is to see about sorting the roof which whilst it "works", I'd like it to be more to size than it is now.

    So the reigning champion tape won’t be making an appearance?

    5 weeks though, I need to get a shuffle on and finish the rebuild!

    looking forward to it , I might even get one working 100%
    Team Pushover - Definitely worse at this than you are!

    Unexpectedly, I can make it!

    Sprouting Potato V4 is signed up, with smaller wheels and a flipper. Hope I get to use the flipper before speeding into the pit.

    I'm gonna enter something else, but I'm not sure what - I need to build it first.

    Yay! Looking forward to seeing you there!

    Arena is being test fitted tonight to make sure everything fits before I deal with the roof. With any luck, if it all fits tonight, I'll paint and detail the arena floor over the weekend.
