Combat Robotics 101

Michael Jeffries of Near Chaos Robotics will be teaching the basics of Robot Combat. Learn how to find parts, how to build, control, power and compete in your first event. Learn about the different weight classes, weapons, styles and what works and doesn't. Avoid rookie mistakes and save money in the long run! Following the formal presentation the entire Near Chaos Robotics fleet will be on hand for demonstration and (weapon off) test drives.

Michael is a Mechanical Engineer, a regular contributor to Servo Magazine, and past winner of the 1lb, 12lb, and 30lb Robot Battles competition at Dragon*Con. Event videos and robot builds can be found at
