What is an Antweight Robot?

Antweight robots are one of the smallest classes of combat robots to emerge from the popular "Robot Wars" TV show.

The basic build rules are that they must fit into a 4" (10cm) cube, and they are limited to a weight of 150g (walkers are allowed an extra 75g).

They are radio-controlled and fight on a 2'6" (76cm) square platform in a fully enclosed arena. Competitions are full combat, you win by immobilising your opponent or by pushing or thowing them off of the platform. There is a drop-off around at least half the perimeter of the platform.

The full rules can be found at: http://www.antweight.co.uk/rules.htm
