I would reckon it will end up on Youtube a few days after each episode is broadcast.
Alternatively you can use a proxy to try and watch it live, I am sure someone will be streaming it.

curious on that vert spinner who uses gyro forces to move.

This will be very interesting.

Donalds new machine looks slick

WItchdoctor and shaman look nice,

Beta looks rediculous

This is going to be amazing.

I've been looking at hub motors for a few years and wasn't sure they'd work in a robot. I guess I'll have to watch this one closely. I've actually found his motors on aliexpress, but there are cheaper versions

I hope Christian bought plenty of spares, those wheels are not going to survive the first contact with a spinner!

200 a motor, damnnnnn

In that design i disaprove as wayy to exposed to all things nasty

In a spinner design like a giant compact drum or something could be cool as a means of building a smaller more compact machine

Just protecting them is key tho
