    Robot Tip: A Quick and Easy way to Mount Batteries

    Mounting all the electronics and batteries onto your robot can often be a pain in the ass. Drilling dozens of holes, measuring them all out to line up perfect, spacers, nuts, bolts, ack! Then taking it all apart when you have to work on something… we discovered a better way to secure things down on our bots which is much faster. Using a Sorbothane sheet and some Velcro you can fasten down just about anything very securely. Then, when you need to take it off to work on it’s super easy. No need to try to get in there with screw drivers and wrenches.

    Good ideas. I've just used velcro alone and haven't had a battery come loose (non-combat). I like the use of Sorbothane, especially for batteries. Gonna get me some!
