One thing that I would suggest these guys is to use the lithium ion or lithium polymer batteries instead of Nickel Metal hydride (NiMh) batteries as the lithium batteries offer better performance but the price definitely go up. Looking at video above we come to know that this robot is amazing and shelling $500 is really worth for this stuff. If you are robot enthusiast then this definitely a good buy for you this season.
