Getting started on robot building
« on: April 28, 2020, 06:19:15 AM »
I am hoping to start getting into building real robots, specifically smaller ones like Antweights. Anyone have any suggestions on the first step of getting started?

This gives a general overview on what you'll be getting into as well as how to construct one

If you're in the US, its mostly the same as UK. You just have a little more weight if you're building an ant and a little less if you're building a beetle.

Here's a link to the US rules
