New Builder Illawarra

Hello Roboteers,

I have a 13 year old son who has been somewhat obsessed with Robot Wars for around the last 18 months. He has watched every episode numerous times. Last year we got hold of a PS2 and ordered the game form the UK, yes there was a game!

The game has led to the desire to build a robot. I have read many interesting articles related to building on what appears to be a fantastic forum. I have a long background in RC, albeit all-things petrol and have an engineering background.

Ideally I am looking for some guidance on where to start. Are there any groups local or even a like minded student at UOW who share a passion and would be interested in helping George see his dream come to fruition.

What events are happening this year and where as it would be fantastic to see some robots in action and discuss where to next.

Regards,

Mark

So check out robowars.com.au for my recent post on the upcoming events.

Also check the tutorials tab for links to Angus's vids on building your first platform. Probably don't bother commenting on the vid it gets burried but people here are more than welcome to help you out.

As for parts I run botbitz.com.au which is your best place to go for ESCs. I also have a bunch of things like radios, chargers, drills & wheels to put up there but just haven't had time with life getting in the way.

Steve
