__________________ Password Please do not think that we are against your building a Mech. I applaud your efforts in that endeavor.

Now on with the project, I have been an adviser to many teams on building purpose robots for competition, moving basketballs, moving dough-nuts, stacking tires. Each of these robots had to have different effectors (HANDS) and different strengths. Some times a fast robot making many trips beat a slower one carrying the total load on one pass.

If you are going to a competition there may be site rules, NO OIL SPILLED on the gymnasium floor. So how and what you use as the prime mover electric motor (batteries) Compressed air motor and cylinders or hydraulic. How are you going to recharge for the next round, I used to advise compressed air and extra tanks for quick change, and a compressor in the van. Then the batteries only had to run the receiver and servo valves.
