    Less than zero? Approaching zero so closely as to appear to equal zero to the casual untrained observer?

    Thats the idea behind launching so many-with four or five in the air you have a better chance of hitting something then if you just shot one at a time.

    They will very likely be VERY inaccurate, but they will be awesome

    I just wouldn't count on it being a primary weapon. Also keep in mind that if you're planning on launching rockets you'll be participating in the Hardcore League, so you might want to make sure you'll have enough payload for your primary weapon systems.

    Has the hardcore class been okayed for Robogames? I don't want to send a bunch of time working on a missile system when I could be working on making my mech walk better or something like that. Especially if the rockets cant be used at the games.

    They should allow it as long as you have solid walls and a solid ceiling to whatever arena you use. If you working with mesh ANYWHERE you should forget about projectiles of any kind.

    Tybs is working closely with the founder of Robogames.

    Read the advisement to builders to have your plan pre-approved.

    I posted it up specifically because it had been approved. We're going to have an enclosed arena from year one, so Hardcore Class is a go.

    Thats awesome. Forgive me on being a little behind on the news, things have been crazy at work so I haven't had to much time to follow your progress. That is good news though and if I have the extra time and money I will probably develop a hardcore weapon system.
