First sit the robot face down and remove all screws.

Cut these four wires long. They are the right and left motors and we will connect these to a l298n h bridge motor controller.

This just shows the options for mounting the air soft guns. I want the EZ CAM right between the guns so it give the guest a first person view like there's a gun in each hand.;)

As you can tell in the pics like the sun started going down after I cut down the second set of air soft weapons. I don't like to cut things in the dark because the lighting can really mess you up when your trying to make a clean cut. Tommorow I will clean up the boogers from the waist of the rad robot and make a plastic mounting plate either from plexiglass I have here or left over black abs plastic. Then we can start mounting things! Sounds fun right?

If good tutorial Josh! it's a shame the great ocean that separates us because I would not mind attending combat robots that would be interesting to a large screen that showed the impact of shot in the square of each robot sensor in car racing rc do that to monitor times and positions of participants, good luck!

@R2D2 it doesn't mean you cannot make one though. Every guy likes shooting at things lol. You may find a couple buddies in your area that want to make one once they see yours. Robotics fun is contagious!
