New to Combat Robotics
« on: April 01, 2018, 05:05:32 pm »
Hi guys,so i really want to get into combat robotics and am currently attempting to get a job to fund this (high school student) so currently am just designing for a 3lb robot. am thinking of doing something similar to sgt. cuddles (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5MbYqHyuIM) but with an aluminum chassis and a titanium drum. any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated

Thank you for your time

I have gathered some resources that you may be interested in.

First, you will need to know what rules you have to follow. Many competitions use the SPARC ruleset.

Next, you may need inspiration. I have found a few guides/inspiration that may help you decide what works for you.
