    Hi all who have taken time out of their busy lives to read another build log,

    I am a long time lurker of this forum, but this is the first time I will contribute in an attempt to give back what this forum has helped me learn over the past few years. This, as you probably have worked out from the title is the build log of my first combat robot.

    For the first entry, I will do a quick first introduction to me etc:

    • Name: Sam Gad
    • Current occupation: R&D Test Engineer for a Tier 1 supplier to the automotive industry
    • Location: Essex
    • Team Name: Just Send it Robotics
    • Robot: FeatherDozer

    As a first time builder but being already within my chosen field of work, I wanted to build a reliable first robot but also push my engineering skills. However, I will quickly mention that I am not great a coming up with names and as the robot is a featherweight and kind of looks like a bulldozer, I put two and two together ...

    The robot was designed and built in 2019 ready for the 2020 events, but due to the current difficulties we are all facing , I only went to 2 events in 2020. We will go into these events in the not-to-distant future but so far, I would say that progress has been much better than expected!

    In the next entry I will go over some of the design philosophy and CAD. Below is a quick CAD teaser of FeatherDozer Mk1.0 (Note that I am a very lazy CAD designer, therefore some elements and not modelled).
