Battle Bots - Beetle Weight Combat Robots!

Postby BrianBailey » Tue Nov 10, 2015 10:52 am

If you haven't heard, I'm hosting a Battle bots workshop at Lowell Makes in January 2016. The price of the workshop includes a basic kit that will help you get started building a beetle weight combat robot.

The exact date for the workshop has not been selected but it will be finalized very soon so stay tuned!!

I will be using this forum to share ideas with those that wish to take the workshop, or just wish to compete. Please submit your links, ideas, questions etc.

Let's build robots!!

Great resources for selecting and buying motors...

Info:

Calculator

Motor, wheels, hubs, mounts:

More good beetle weight motors:

Seems many beetle weight combat robots are using those ebay 1000RPM motors with great success.

Is the intention that we form teams or compete as individuals?
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

Here's a place to get the 1000 RPM motors without having to wait for shipping from China.

Here are the actual motors:
