This is Helios:
This wrecking machine, brought to you by the fine people at Team Cosmos, utilizes a surprizingly simple and effective weapon. A spinning drum with ridges that catch under the edge of an oponent and litterally pitch it up into the air.
I know this bot isn’t exactly new, but once I saw this video of Helios in action, I knew we had to give it the spotlight.
Watch the video, and you’ll understand why Helios has such an impressive track record:
- First place at HSRC 02
- First place at Steel Conflict
- First place at Botbash 2002
- First place at Steel Conflict 2
- First place at Motorama
- Third place at Botbash 2003
- First place at Robot Assault

- Second place at Motorama ’06
