Much competition?

Post by Paulmchurd » Thu Mar 29, 2018 7:59 am

Where do beetle builders hang out?

Is there much competition for beetle builders? I don’t see any competitions held advertised on here.

I dunno to be honest as to where they hang out - I suspect more to the FRA forum but even then, Beetle builders tend to be part of a team that also runs a Feather or a Ant.

There was the UWE Beetle Brawl back in February, I think there is another one at Robots Live! Burgress Hill (too far for me sadly) and then there is the Kinematic event in September as well (http://www.fightingrobots.co.uk/threads ... mpionships) but that hasn't opened up for applicants yet, would like to put my Beetle back into the fray. :D

Ah thanks.

I signed up to FRA ages. An admin still hasn’t processed me so I can’t click on links or pictures. Oh well, I could pester them.

Thanks for the link. I could possibly build something by then. Plenty of time.

i had that issue with FRA, too. said it was awaiting authorization which never came.

i tried using a different email more recently, and the message had changed - you now only get access if you pay up a fiver per year, so i paid up on my original account.

even that seems a bit quiet.

I guess it is quiet there because it is "off season" for the FW/HW events at the moment. It'll pick up again.

The FRA became quiet a long time ago (a few years), build diaries which were the mainstay just kinda fell out of fashion, far less people keep them these days. And a lot of the small topics like quick questions and stuff went to the groups on FB and stuff.
