There was a discussion about this on the FRA forum. One alternative might be to simply rebind the controller to one another roboteer might have if that works for you? It'd mean they'd use their own controller.

That makes sense. I'll avoid bringing mine (they're based on toys so won't re-bind) but thank you for answering :D

Apologies, I noticed last night that the registration to the originally planned event was still open on AntLog, which I have now force closed. If you have signed up for BotFest 4 via AntLog, you will need to register again through the Google form.

All 14 slots have now been filled and the Google form has been closed. With that said, I am going back to the Church this Sunday to see if it is possible to rise this by 6 to make 20 slots for anyone who missed out on registration the first time around.

How many robots is that, out of curiosity?

It looks to be about 30 at the moment, which would be a record for this event I think.

Would love to try and attend this if possible, was only just informed of the new hosting date.

Me and some others would still love to go if more slots do open up, I have to 1up my 2nd place after all.

Looking forward to an increased participant cap.

So I've had a look at the church hall and the layout of the place and I think I am comfortable with adding two more spaces to the event but then that will be it. The signup form has been re-opened.


Because of the very limited plugs available, I recommend that people share extension leads where possible. It is also worth noting that since there is also little in the way of tables to begin with, we'll have to fashion some tables out of the abundance of chairs around.
