My bigger ones are all on hold due to lack of funds and the UK championships being the same damn weekend as the Leeds festival.

Hi all,

I'd thought and introduce myself. I am Leo, and have been active in fighting robots since mid year 2000.

I haver several heavyweights, one antweight, and recently a featherweight as well, Hannibalito. It is a FP flipper that still has a few bugs in it, but as time progresses it will get better.

Today morning (at 2 am, 11th august) I got my first Featherweight running :DAccident
Might not be much to the eye, but I've planned this featherweight since 2001!

Looks like a solid polycarb machine to me. What are the specs of the motors and batteries?

Do you steer with the front wheels? or do you drag them around?
