That's so restricting.  Why does it have to be trinity when flight can be generated in so many different ways?

^^Wow, that would be a task...^^

 
(We're getting into 'functioning' more than just 'aesthetics'...)

I still like military.


What about a 'Task-bot'....  One that has to be built and programmed to:
-do a task,
-fetch an object,
-run a certain course,
-1 or 2 of the above?

Input is appreciated. :)
-Arrogance is a quantity devoid of quality...
-As a client once told me "This is my story, and it's sticking to me!"
-Relationships these days are like the 'Arrival' section of the airport: a lot of baggage is being revealed in one place, and not a lot of it is being correlated to its real owners...

What about a team BOTM? One person could build the first half of the bot and other person could build the rest of it.

There would be no way of determining if one actually built only half the bot. A simple team BOTM would be easier. :P

King of Karnage - Sideshow Freak (Runner-Up, Best Engineered)
Rust In Pieces - Paper Cut 3 (Grand Champion, Most Dangerous Bot)
Wheely Tag Tournament - Ion Thruster (Grand Champion, along with Ounces' DiSemboweLment)
UK vs USA - Dark Striker (Grand Champion)
Rust In Pieces 2 - Claymore (Runner-Up, Favourite Bot)
BBEANS 6 - Infection 4 (Runner-Up)
RA2 Team Championships - Serious Business, Skeksis (Runner-Up, along with Scrappy, S_M, and Badnik)
RA2 Team Championships 2 - The Other Stig (Runner-Up, along with Scrappy, S_M, Badnik, 090901, and R1885)
Replica Wars 3 - Abaddon (Runner-Up, Luckiest Bot)
BroBots - wheebot & yaybot (Runner-Up)
Robo Zone 2 - Dipper (4th place, Survival Champion, & Best Axle Bot)
ARBBC - The Covenant (3rd place, BW Rumble Winner, Most Feared BW)

What about just a plain old DSL lightweight, all these 'anything goes' things get boring after a while.
