Battle Bots!
« on: April 05, 2009, 04:10:46 PM »
As u might remember that old TV show "Battle Bots" i was a huge fan and has had a little bit of experience with robots, electronics, mechanics, etc. This all leads to the fact that i wanna build a mini battle bot...... i no it sounds far-fetched but i think it sounds like a fun project, i dont have a lotta money and would like some advice........ ive started one rough model out of an old x-mod rc car (u may remember that) I took out the motor and am currently adding a round jig-saw disk that will spin and kill........ I mainly want some advice on building a mini battle bot........... so anything u have to tell me would be nice

First design it on the computer, I use to build with no planning at all, wasted tons of money, if you plan you know what you need, and you buy no more than needed.

YouTube has some tutorials how to make a battle bot (fast search)

I'd like to let you know (if you don't) that BattleBots is back!  I'm on a team that'll be competing in the college class!  Look & cheer for the UCSD Trition bot!   ;D
