  1. For this competition I wanted to build the most advanced bot, packed full of features: - Mecanum wheels, they allow the bot to go in ANY direction, even sideways. Each wheel is powered by 2 M motors, therebye totaling at 8 M motors for drive, combined with a flippable design which allows the bot to drive upside down - Liftable spikes to raise the opponent and siable them in the front, powered by 2 L motors and at the sides, powered by 2 M motors - The rear has a very fast spinning weapon, which tops at some 4000 rpm, powered by an RC motor - to top it all off the whole rear spinning weapon is on an arm which can pivot upward, therebye delivering a powerfull blow. For that action I used 4 XL motors. - And finally some corner rubber guards make it very hard for this bot to be picked up and dragged: Squeezing 17 motors, 2 Sbricks and 2 battery boxes in a robot of less than 8 studs tall and 45 x 45 studs wide and long was a challenge, but in the end I succeded. Because it looks like a rather squarish looking pancakge I decided to simply call it that - square pancake. Specifications: - Powered by 10M, 2L, 4XL and 1 RC motor for a total of 17 motors - Controlled by 2 sbricks - 45 x 45 x 8 studs large - weight is around 2,5 kg Here's spikes and the weapon are suppose to work in together to disable and smack the brick ouf of the opponent: To control the robot I made a custom Sbrick profile for my phone. Controlling all the motors and ways of movements can be quite a challenge And here is the nightmare of cables, motors, gears and bricks which hides under the armor: Please enjoy the video showcasing all the functions: In the end I know this may not be the toughest or nicest looking battlebot, but I think it compensates with a very large amount of unsual features and techniques. Building this model was very fun, among other things it inspired me to continue developing my mecanum wheels for future models. A big thanks to everyone for inspiring me
