Have you ever wanted to see how a real battle robot is put together? Follow along as I lead you through each step of the assembly. I will share my thoughts regarding best practices and some of the techniques that will make life easier. In the second video, I will show you some of the design process and the tools I used to make this project.
For those interested in the electrical parts I used (sources, prices, etc...) I have put together a little reference:

Although these are the parts that worked for me, they are by no means perfect and I encourage you to do your own digging for cheaper alternatives, etc...
