Re: BBC robot wars cancelled.??

Well they did say they were going to do a Featherweight event at one point (for series 9 I think) but they then shelved that indefinitely.

Re: Hello, My robots.

I haven't seen anyone talk about that 2nd ESC you mentioned. Does it have the bells and whistles of the more popular ones like the braking and steering mix etc?

Re: Ant Freeze 5 - 3rd Feb 2018 NEW DATE
