Volksbot. I have been trying to build a bot for the last 2 years. The biggest problem is the drive system. Motor to wheel/tracks. Virtually nothing is available in New Zealand as the demand for bot stuff is very low. I am involved in Leggo League in the schools & this is starting to go now . A big help has been over-seas trips & visitors coming to N.Z. How-ever I am going to do model planes from now. Cheers John M
