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.

    Do you know the gear ratio?

    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.

    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

    Was Paradox autonomous or RC controlled?

    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’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
