I EELBots.com to document my lessons learned from COMBOT building. I took a relatively typical approach, of trying to build a cheap lowerest entry point machine to learn from. v0 and v1 were both rough and I went through alot of components and time figureing out just how cheap I could be. First set of ESCs, Batteries and Spinner Motors were a complete waste of time. The ESCs shorted and blew my battery. See Bots and Lowest Bidder Build Report for more information. What I learned through this trial and error I wanted to share in more detail. Not only what worked but also what didn't work.
In my time researching how to build bots I also discovered a lack of horizontal spinner kit. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity for me to sell my own refined bot. And later on expand to sell more kits and components.
