Probably the best bot you've built so far, but still several issues. You have WAY too many batteries. 2 battlepacks is enough for the motor setup you have here. You can also shrink the chassis down a ton, so it's just barely big enough to fit your internals.
To add to what TR said, yeah. All spin motors in RA2 consume the same amount of power due to programmer error, as said in this
 

This means you can follow what the description said about how many motors can a batt power for a certain amount of time before a bot runs out of power. This also means you can safely run your bot to the full three minutes with just two battlepacks as what TR said

You have such a large amount of empty space there. Shrink the chassis, maybe try putting in some front armour.

Servos actually don't use any battery power in Ra2. But you will need some counterweights to effectively lift

Dude, you need to shrink the chassis, it only needs 2 reds for its power

That empty space is really killing me. Try to shrink your chassis a bit, and pack components like a box chock of cool stuff.

At least put his face to make it more appealing, I agree with okamani though, it looks like you made this all with extenders, reduce it and replace them with Armor panels to save weight instead

Rip-off looks like a rip-off of my Nighthawk. Although we both copied Valkyrie, so no winners there.
Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.

Robo hit it right on the head, a nice bot just needs a few adjustments to make it great

That looks not very good, you may want to change the color scheme, and make the drum bigger

I second this notion, the color is simply way too bright, and the drum is too small for the hypno teeth vice/versa. It is a decent looking bot otherwise. Also you might want to add some of those slot decals to the belt area.

The colors brightness is too much, and I think purple would be better

congratulations its a brown wedge

you're doing a good job at minimizing chassis space, at least

give it an actual skin and make it pop! if you put in the effort to make this you should put in the effort to make it look good too

Flipper actually.

Though I do agree. Giving it a better skin would vastly help it. Secondly maybe it needs a few more batteries
