Hi, I'm a starter to the "battle bot" world. I've added stuff to rc cars but really I'm kind of a noob at it. So I'm just looking for a simple to make, possibly cheap and effective battle bot to make.

I am having a problem with getting this switch to run a motor in forward and reverse. The wiring diagram is in the picture, but i will describe it here also. There are three leads (s1 for +, s2 for motor -, and s3 for battery -). For the s1 the same positive lead is attached to the motor and this pin, leading to the problem that if I use two to fun the motor each way then there is a constant open connection to the battery. The only way I can think of to fix this is a diode to keep the flow from going up the way it is not supposed to. If you have any other ideas or if this is not warranted I would like to know, these are expensive switches and i would hate to burn one out on a stupid mistake. Thanks in advance.

Alright I was planning on posting this towards the end of the Grand Tournament but I thought I'd start right now because I have no homework and so I have nothing better to do =PAlright to start off this is an IRPG or Internet Role-Playing Game. It's just for fun and nothing is completely serious. While we won't fake battles or anything I figured we could start up something and possibly if I figure out a good way we could play some sort of good game. Maybe I could make up one giving each gun some stats and...blah blah blah I'll have to start a collaboration team so if you want to help...yeah.Ok so here is how it's going to work. First off I need to know everyone who wants to participate. All you're going to do is have fun as we go along with the topic. So yeah here is a list of all the people who are going to play along so that we are ready for the next steps-TheDunkis-Jollex-shadowninja31Ok well the Top 3 winners of the Grand Tournament will be Team captains. If we end up with a lot of participants then maybe even 4 or 5 teams may be established. If one of them doesn't want to be a team captain then it will be passed to the next runner-up but I would prefer that no more than one person does this. Maybe we should hold elections instead? Maybe they should be nominated because the best builder isn't always the best leader. After our Captains have been decided they will all starting with the highest winning person choose team members from the list in order. Please don't disclude anyone on the list or turn down those who do join. Believe me everyone has something to bring to the table. Once your teams are established you will then have to make a choice on what will be-Your team name-If you really wish your individual nicknames-I don't know. If you guys end up with a graphics artist then design a team flag-Establish ranks. Better the person better their rank. -Finally you'll decide your standard issue weapons. These will include: *One Side Arm (i.e. DMS, TDS) *Two compact secondary weapons (i.e. BBKWG, IaC's Assault pistol, basically any assault pistol to SMG sized weapon) *Two assault rifles (Well any mid sized repeater so like Trauts' Thompson, My AK-74, or as long as it's compact any one shot power weapon like the DD-27 if you want) *One Sniper Rifle (i.e. Mepain's Sniper, Gorkem's Sniper,...anything with sniper at the end of it maybe?) *One Support weapon (i.e. a rubber band gun. Which ever of the storms was a friggen' beast!) *One Explosive (i.e. IaC's War Bomb, Splodies) *One misc. weapons (i.e. Shot gun, Canno--Oh gees I do hope IaC ends up to be one of the captains so people are only fighting to be on the team and not fighting to be one his team after the captains are done fighting to have him on their team...)You may only choose weapons that belong to your team members so choose carefully. Maybe later if I establish some sort of forum for a full own game you might be able to make money and buy weapons from others yada yada.Ranks for now will be simple and will go as follow in order from lowest to highest powered.~Basic Troops-Private-Corporal-Sergeant~Commanding Officers~-Lieutenant-Captain (from now on this is officer rank and not the leader title)-General~Leaders~-If you really wish a Second-in-Command although this would most likely be a General-Leader-- You then get to choose your own title such as President, Emperor, etc.You then must choose a role. Uh check my war game thread to see all of them. I'll post them here later. You should then use the appropriate weapons associated with your role. This will be more important once again if I am able to come up with some sort of actual game.In the end however you team must develop and arsenal of perfect weapons. So who's up for it? Should be a fun way to pass the time. I might make a forum for the whole war to be located in. If enough people join. Then who knows it depends how much help I get on how fancy the forum turns out and if I could turn it into a permanent home or not.

Lately I've been into coding, so I made this cool game called MINE BATTLE. The point of the game is to collect all the coins without being destroyed by the barrel bombs or the Skeletons.

First 2 Pics are of my sniper with it's add-ons. 3rd pic is my P90 rubber band gun - very sturdy and compact and fun 1-handed shooting. Its entire stock is hollow with a locking door to hold rubber bands, or pieces, or a small sandwich if you wanted. 4th pic was a fairly powerful "battle rifle" if you will. And th 5th pic is my heavily modded 6 round pump-action adamsdead shotgun.

I need a project, so I decided I would make the ultimate war rifle. I can tell you right now, don't say a TR, because I personally think they're a tad unreliable. What would your ultimate battle/war rifle be(features, etc)? I could be starting a new series, the 968 series, consisting of ultimate war guns, so expect a bunch more of these type of questions. Thank you for your time, builder968

Killer Video of the Gatling Gun. I'm revealing my coming instructable. I will publish a heavy duty 16 shot Gatling gun that shoots 10 barrels per second. When 3 green pegs are in each barrel it shoots 30 bullets per second. I shot a total of 48 pegs in the video. Look for that in a month or two. Hope you can't wait. NO PICTURES YET. IT'S TRUE IDENTITY WILL REMAIN A SECRET UNTIL IT IS PUBLISHED. ALL YOU WILL SEE IS IT'S MASSIVE FIREPOWER.

I'm going to be having several airsoft battles with my friends. About six people total, myself included. I narrowed down my choices down to a JG G36C with a vertical foregrip and red/green dot, or a JG AUG A3 with a red/green dot and vertical foregrip. I know the AUG is more accurate, but is it reliable? Which one should I choose?

In the poster for the new game Halo Wars, try to find the mistake. I'll give you a hint: look at their guns. As many people know from reading the Halo series of books and the video games, that before the battle rifle is introduced, all but one Spartan are wiped out on Reach, or trapped inside of Onyx. You, as Master Chief, are introduced to the BR55HB SR Battle Rifle in Halo 2. The Spartans were all wiped out before Halo 1, well before the Battle Rifle is even conceived by its makers. What gives? Why would they make such a serious (to me) mistake on a widely distributed promotional product?

The video for "Ritalin" by Dancing Pigeons features some lovely slo-mo footage of a battle between a flamethrower and a fire extinguisher. Well, the battle itself isn't as intense as it sounds, really, but the footage is pretty damn cool. The footage was shot with a Vision Research Phantom, a camera I truly wish was affordable. I would be shooting everything in slo-mo. via engadget alt

Dual M7 Caseless SMGsI made another SMG and a Battle Rifle! The SMGs are almost exactly alike, except when I made the second one I noticed some problems and made a few small changes. Also, I didn't have enough of those swingy pieces I used for the forestock joint, so I used ball and joint pieces, which worked great.Here is the description from the page I made when I made the first one.This is a K'NEX model (just a model, not a gun) of the M7 Caseless Submachine Gun from Halo, better known as the SMG. It has twin notch sights, rear and fore stock, and a solid barrel. The stock is extended, the way I made it, but I'm thinking about making it collapsible. It should be fairly easy to put in a firing mechanism, but I don't plan on doing that right now. I don't think I'm gonna post instructions because I would have to take it apart. If anyone can dissect it in their minds, go ahead and make an Instructable, but make it a collaboration with me. M7 Caseless SMG on Halopedia.orgHigh-Res M7 Caseless SMGBR55HB SR - Battle Rifle, Heavy Barrel, Sniper RifleDifferences between BR55HB SR (Halo 3) and BR55 (Halo 2)- Longer barrel- Trigger guardI based my model off the BR55HB SR, which is the actual name for the Battle Rifle in Halo 3, so it includes all the changes. It has the elevated rail, which has a scope on it. You might notice at the end of the barrel in the picture of the actual gun, the barrel looks expanded at the end. I did this too. The inside of the model is almost completely hollow, so it would be easy to convert into a gun. The barrel at the end would be hard though. The whole thing is very solid, even though it's hollow. It's also very easy to make, unlike the SMG.BR55HB SR Battle Rifle on Halopedia.orgHigh-Res BR55HB SR Battle Rifle

Incase if you don't know what W.I.P Means it means Work In Process yes i will soon release a Battle Rifle to replace the Assault Rifle (its not a 3 round burst it only shoots 3 ammo at once kinda like a shotgun) it is pretty cool exept that you can see that little hole in the number area UPDATE well im sorry to say that i've been so busy that i dont think il be able to release it, but if you still want to use it then first, download Halo Trial and after you install it, go to the Halo Filefront place (in google search: Halo Files) then in the search bar type in: Halo 2 Mod for Halo Trial (NOTE: there will be 2 so click on 1 of them and if you see red letters and a link to a new version then click it)

OK, so i downloaded Combat Arms to see what it was like, i downloaded it, installed it, made a user. then when i started it, it worked fine, i logged in, joined a server and a room, then it said the game was starting so i waited, it counted down 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 then the game froze for around 5 seconds, I thought the game was starting so I waited. Then a message popped up: Failed to join battle. Connection timed out? I have tried re-installing the game twice, allowed CA through my firewall and anti virus (AVG 2011) and yet it still wouldn't let me join a game. I then disabled my firewall and AVG to see if it still happened, STILL DIDN'T WORK! by this point I was getting annoyed :S I exited CA and re-enabled both my firewall and AV software. any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance. P.S. We recently got a new router so it's not our internet, i am also running windows 7 64bit, running CA in admin and compatibility for xp sp2 thanks in advance :D

I found a fun internet game through another forum, and I thought I'd share for internet reputations!It's called My Brute, where you make a character out of randomly selected body parts and accessories, and then battle. It's not a hard game, just something to do in your spare time when you've got nothing better to do. IF you win a battle, you level up. If you lose, you lose, then try again. There are a few other factors and variables, but you'll find out.My Brute:Mepain's Brute

So, if you've seen the movie Real Steel you know what i'm talking about. Real Steel is boxing, fighting and wrestling humanoid robots. I posted this contest because I wanted to see how many people can make a humanoid that works, or modify a humanoid hat you can buy. Zibits, mini robots (about 3 in. tall), are pretty cool, saying that they only go forward, or 360 degrees. You can hack em, fight em and play with them. Also, WOWWEE makes really cool humanoids to hack into, for example Full sized Robosapien and Femisapien. Tri-BOIT and Robo-ROVER. Post an Instructable with a video if you want to, and please make a step by step guide on how to make your battle bot. If you make it from scratch you have a higher chance of winning, if you hack a ZIbit or make a mini robot you might win the mini battle bot contest. Wowwee toys are big so those are the big robot humanoid contest. Be creative and express your ideas, and remember you always have a great chance of winning. The naming of the robot types were just an example of cheap stuff you can find in most stores, use whatever you'd like to make the ultimate humanoid robot contest. If there are a lot of people there will be one , to three, maybe five winners, if there are less than 10, there will be multiple winner depending on size, type and what they do, but there will always be one grand prize winner. Enjoy! Contest ends when I want it to.

This is my most recent gun the TBMBRM86 (the burrito master battle rifle M86) not shown in the picture because I had to break it for top thrill dragster is a slide that would push the ram back. this piece can also be used as a spring loaded knife for melee attacks. shoots very reliably and very powerfully if you dont use the ram and hold the trigger down you can empty the mag in 7-10 seconds. the trigger guard is the best partit makes it feal so realistic. I was trying to make this gun look sorta alien. obviously I haven't finished some of the decor. I will admit that i got the open bottom magazine idea from iac but I made sure that I only got the idea and built every thing by myself. requests on attachments are very welcome.
