I can bring extra set of those tools, easier than borrowing back and forth all weekend.
6,8 or 10 inch shifters.?

Just heard that the robot wars comp has been broadcast on ABC News Canberra. It's towards the end of the bulletin at ~25min 45s

The link WILL CHANGE AFTER TODAY and it will only be viewable in Australia.

Thanks Rob, that's the same footage that was on the news report.
ABC News have also done an article about it:

O god, ABC News even showed footage of my bot :S

What a sad day for our national broadcaster.

That is the standard ABC News 24 Breakfast team for country wide weekends so a decent chance that was shown around the country.

On a more serious note, thanks for the great event everyone involved in organising and makign the event run smoothly.

Not home yet. Yesterday Prowler got destroyed and today the airline has lost what was left of it. Crappy end to a great weekend.

Broke a drive motor and the actuator. But the main problem was the frame getting twisted into the left wheel.


But now I can build a new version Very Happy

And I'm uploading a video, but it's rather slow.

Recovered enough to post something semi-coherent.... Waffle time!

As usual, Erika and Steve (plus the support of their families!) have put on yet another spectacular event. Each event just gets bigger, better and more amazing. Massive thanks to everyone who turned up to compete, volunteer or even to just watch. The level of newcomers was spectacular, loved the quality of not just the builds of new robots, but also the designs! Lets hope this keeps happening!

It was great to catch up with everyone again, like a family reunion, but the fights are better! Really keen to see all the videos as they surface.
