ROBOT WARS: Build Your Own Robot

JAMES AND GRANT COOPER    Book Number: 86228    Product format: Hardback

A Haynes manual produced in association with the BBC TV programme, here is a practical guide to building an operating robot safely. If you want to win the competition, get the edge and find out from a leading roboteer what it takes to win the trophy, the manual takes a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the show, providing an illustrated step-by-step practical guide to building three project robots, from a simple self-navigating Bug Bot, a Flip Bot to a fully controllable, fully armoured and weapon equipped Robot Wars challenger. Helping promote creativity and engineering ingenuity here are literally the nuts and bolts, the lithium polymer batteries, buffer tank which stores the regulated Co2, front ram valve fittings, battery box, cardboard base and (literally) double-sided sticky tape as you get started. Fact boxes with all the tools and materials required, step-by-step colour photos, and hundreds of colour photographs of the action on stage with house robot biogs for The Shunt, Dead Metal taking a bite out of Foxic, Matilda wreaking havoc, Sir Killalot and more. With list of side competitions and winners, directory of competitor robots with their specifications and useful contacts. 8½" x 11", 164pp.
