    First, let me (very briefly) introduce myself:
    My name is Iestyn, I'm from the Netherlands and have so far built two featherweights together with my brother-in-law.

    Now on to the important stuff:
    A few weeks ago, I started working on a heavyweight when I got the opportunity to buy the drive system form an old Dutch robot wars competitor, Scraptosaur 1.
    Since Heavyweight events mainly take place in the UK, I figured it would be a good idea to start a topic on the FRA forum to get advice and post updates for those of you who are interested.

    What I've got so far:

    -2x 24V 150W wheelchair motors with 200mm wheels attached to the gearbox
    -2x 40A speedcontrollers
    -A chassis that came with the drive, the previous owner had plans to build a House Robot for the DRG featherweight arena but never got round to it. Still, it's useful for testing purposes.

    Having taken it for a test drive, I'm now in the process of designing an entirely new robot around the existing components.

    ah yes i saw this get suggested to be me on you-tube, only thing to be aware about is that parts of this robot could be rather out of data, also looking at it some of construction it could bend badly, i would highly suggest you look though build logs here and on Facebook
