Introduction: Paradox the Ultimate Lego Battlebot

About: I am a lego mindstorms fan and builder. I primarily make lego battlebots, but i also make ball machines. Hope you like all my stuff!
Hello!

THis is my battlebot named Paradox. He has faced many other lego battlebots and defeated them all.
I have made a whole series of videos for this robot.

Below is the link to his playlist of all his videos.

    Fortunately I found the drivetrain sitting around for some reason: http://puu.sh/7i6ob/b582d09b20.JPG
    It is in the following arrangement (numbers indicate teeth count, P indicates powered, W indicates wheel attached, all are the double bevel gears(forgot what they were called))
    12W-20-12-20-12-20-12W,P-36-12-20-12W

    Or in ratios with base 12:
    1W-1.66-1-1.66-1-1.66-1W,P-36-1-1.66-1W

    It was mainly designed that way to have a large base and surface area. At the time, my robots trended towards lower to the ground, compact, and not very tall.

    Nobody commenting, but this is pretty awesome! Reminds me of Robot Wars :P

    Thanks for commenting and the reply.
    I plan on joining a robot battle comp. later in life.

    One thing I have learned from these videos is... treads = MAJORLY BAD IDEA!!!!!

    P.S. Singularity Mk II will be instrucablized soon, but the pictures may be cr**py since I have to use my webcam (my camera is out of bats, and my family goes through double-As VERY quickly), but sorry for the loooooooong wait :0

    He was Rc controlled. Though i could make him automotous.

    O, cause I'm trying to make a Paradox-like battle bot, but I don't know how to RC him...

    I have now made... Singularity, battlebot 3084

    AWESOME! What is he like? You can compare him to Paradox through his pictures and his videos.

    I made an i'ble (sort of) for him. Check it out! He's only half the weight of Paradox thought, since I used only NXT parts...

    I sure will! Thanx for subbing!

    paradox has only three motors.

    I’m making my own LEGO BattleBot but instead of a nxt, I have a ev3. I’m gonna use the slope but once the other robot gets on it I’ll push the other robot over

    So does Singularity! :) where r u if your close we could pit them against one another

    How did you RC him? And what technic set did you use?

    i used Lego mindstorms NXT so i controlled him with a laptop which connected viaa bluetooth. Besides the 2 NXT sets used to make him, i used the motorized crane motorized hauler and buggy.
