    I got tempted to get a bioloid so im saving for that now. The robobuilder wont cut it for mech wars. Im using a gumstix or hammer.

    IMHO I think Dr. Giy is the best with walking gaits. Good example to go by.

    I also believe its possible. Just have lots of trial & error along with a lot of focus and concentration, you'll have it eventually.

    Re: Arena Discussion

    A few more buildings, and put some walls around the arena that go from a building to the Boundaries. Basically so the mech can't just go around the outside quickly and come from behind.

    Or we could just use wireless, most of our mechs are going to have some form of wireless connection from the sounds of it.

    Just put the cpu in an area close to the arena. Instead of wires lets switch it to bluetooth/zig wireless since mechs are going to have it equiped.

    That might be a good idea for a centralized cpu in the arena, if we want to add any other gadgets its fully possible too hook it up quickly.
