  • Defcon 2009 rules: car size?

    Hello,

    I am trying to find a car which fits into 12" square, and I am having trouble finding one. I keep finding either smaller ones, 9-10 inches long, or larger ones, 13-14 inches long. The smaller ones do not have much free space availible, so it will be quite a challenge to fit both wall sensors, the gun, enemy-finding camera, and batteries for everything.

    Would it be possible to relax the rules, so that the wheelbase is limited to 12 inches, not total car length?

    Try looking at 1/18th scale RC cars, they should fit within 12" cube with enough free space for sensors.

    Keep an eye on the development blog at http://defconbots.blogspot.com/ it has details of the example platform that is currently under development.
