Hi! I'm Camden, 16, from MN. and i happened to stumble on this forum. I'm already addicted to it drunken basically, i LOVE battlebots, but i have no experience building or programming them, or even touching materials they're made of Crying or Very sad

but i do have driving experience with my 1/16 slash VXL (similar enough, right? Neutral ) anyway, i was just wondering if you guys could give me any tips on how to get started with a battlebot?

i have a very poor sketch of a bot with two blades and chains, idk what weight category i could fit it in, but i'm really interested in the cheapest weight class Rolling Eyes that still has a very powerful weapon (10k rpm w/ a wep 1/2 the weight of the bot? Twisted Evil )

Welcome to the forum.
For your first bot I recomend doing alot of research and throwing your ideas around on here to get some opininions before you start spending money. We've all spent the money and learned alot of mistakes and hopefully we can help you from making some.

Awesome! thanks! hmm..well, my ideas are all based off a full-body spinner, for example wayachi and shrederator are two fearsome bots i aim to not only replicate, but surpass in terms of design and killing power Twisted Evil for now, i have no autocad, solidworks, or other parts design software, but i do have some crude sketches in one of my school notebooks! Ill try to find the cord so i can upload a pic for you.

oh! and for an antweight, i was thinking a combo design between tornado2 and my own addition of chains with heavy hammers on the end... do you think a 1" long, 5/16" inside dia. spring wold work really well for a super lightweight, durable 90 deg. joint to attach the motor to the weapon? unless the motor has more than 5 oz-in of torque, the spring can handle it.

Well this isnt really the place to discuss your designs. When you get a chance go ahead and start a new thread for your bots. Pictures always help everyone out.
I good tool to start off with simple cad is the EMachineShop program.

With antweights, the oz's add add quick so the chain flail weapon isnt going to be bvery effective (actually in any class, I had the same idea when I first started with bots)

Hello, I am Luke Yount. I am currently on the Plum Robotics, and this is my first year as a fully active member of the bots team.

I largely helped with the documentation this year for both the Shocker, and Atomic Shock.

I am currently working on designing a 3lb spinner, and hope to have it completed by the end of the summer (Or at least everything but the weapon itself).

Hello everyone!
My name is Kurtis and I own FingerTech Robotics. Alex has invited me to join your forum and hopefully while I'm here I can answer any questions about my products and offer some advice on building in general. I've been building combat bots and organizing the SCRC Kilobots combat events since 2003.

I'm happy to see so many positive comments about FingerTech products. It's truly amazing how far the company has come since I started doing it full time two years ago. And it's entirely due to word-of-mouth, so I thank all you builders!

Hey kurtis welcome and thanks for joining. I just got my order in two days back and wow I'm impressed. Both the motors and speed controller are very impressive and live past expectations. When Kyle said they are 10x better than banebots he was right! Expect another order soon!

Good to hear! Don't forget to post a product review on the website. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to get people to do that!

In fact, if ANYone has used FingerTech products, please just take a quick 2 minutes from your day and let other people know what you think! I'll even make it easy: Products Page

I've had a "reviews=discounts" sale before, and probably will again, if you need some incentive. Wink

I'm an old school programmer some systems- Apple 2+, C64, PCs and some languages like C, C++, Java, Javascript, HTML (Half Hour To Master Language), some PLC programming (Programmable Logic Controllers)
Now studying some extreme AI algorithms which are able to distinguish images despite there being more pixel combinations than atoms in our universe. Part of the AI industry is finally on the right track. The same AI algorithm can do everything else. See Numenta.com
HTM will be part of future bots but most can't handle the technology right now.

Hey everyone, I thought I might as well introduce myself though I've been lurking for quite awhile.

My name is Zach. I'm a grad student at Ohio State in Mechanical/Aerospace Engineering. I've competed in the past two HORD events in Cleveland and hopefully will be able to make it out to more NERC events and elsewhere.
