next weekedn there will be a botsiq type event at Belen Jesuit school in Miami

It is mostly a vex qualifyer, with teams coming in from out of town but the 8 x 8 botsiq arena will b e setup , with maybe 8 or 10 15's attending.

Also, there will be a small insect arena to do demos to try and promote the building of small combat robots.

I will bring my meletys and STING if they run.

also, Iwill bring the 12 melty, if it runs in case any of the 15's wanna have a go...

should be fun....

anyone with a 1 or 3 pounder might wanna come down and demo their bot's prowess... affraid

Well it was a heck of a day at Belen....wow

I didn;t get to see a lot of what happened, but the MLEC team went at each other full force...Ti and sparks were flying, 2 mamba monster motors exploded, 1 with pieces of magnets flying everyhwhere. I heard some noises...sounded like sledge hammers htting as Rattler 1 and Sting Em (both S7 drumbots) beat each other to a pulp.

Sting Em ripped all the Ti off the front of Rattler 2 (girls can be mean) and bent the 1/4" Ti wedge!!!

I ran my 1 pound melty in a smaller arena, Sting as well, the 3 was tested and the 12 melty is now officially a 1 hit wonder, as the second accelerometer went south in losing to a 9" Colson.....

I can;t wait to see some of the video, in that I didn;t see much live action.....I did see Fluffy flying thru the air tho...not sure what Will was up to??

This was mostly a VEx qualifyer, with around 24 teams competing...not sure who won that either....

Lots of fun, sparks, smoke etc.

I'm not sure what amps they draw, but I'm certain MLEC uses LiPos and I don't think BBIQ has a limit on battery capacity. I think I heard PKynerd say they were running something crazy like 8s, but that just seems too much, so maybe I misremember.

these guys were supposed to just play pushy. back to back. no drum, no wedge

rat 2 thought he was losing and at the 2:30 mark, began using his wedge

http://www.youtube.com/user/jcoello43#p/u/9/xUP8fZfAroE

so the girls team had to spank rattler 2...lots of chewed up Ti, bent wedge an a tapout

http://www.youtube.com/user/jcoello43#p/u/7/Y0rRtEMCX_w

at this point iit was total chaos,rattler 1 and Stingem going drum to drum

http://www.youtube.com/user/jcoello43#p/u/0/6_i0oLxTw_s

and finally omly rat1 and 2 remained and fought for the win

http://www.youtube.com/user/jcoello43#p/u/1/ke5kDjUR2BU


drumbots were brushless on 5s...very small motors, very low amps
