    Default Robot Wars 2018

    Been watching the new series of Robot wars with interest. DS1 is super excited about it and wants to build a robot and enter it.

    I am not an engineer, nor pretty hot on electronics, but I am good at learning stuff.

    Having taken a look around, not finding that many videos/instructions on buiding one of these robots, which makes me think there may be a kickstarter type market. Ie. Card board robots, mdf etc as a starting point?

    Anyway, I digress? Has anyone on the forum done anything related? Anyone interested in a new CUK sponsored Robot?

    Old Hacks Ravenge?

    SKA2?

    WGAS???

    A "CUKBot" sounds like an immense idea MF!
