While Charlotte Combat Robot Club is planning to bring up to 6 plastic-antweight robots, this is not guaranteed. We encourage people to sign up for the plastic class, even if there is a waitlist, as some of the team bots may be withdrawn.


Modified double elimination (single final fight) and SPARC rules apply.


Once Registration fills up any additional registrations will move to the wait list.


PLEASE upload a picture of your robot!  If you can build a robot you should be able to figure out how to upload a picture! 


Release form and payment due Midnight EST, March 10th, 2024.  If Registration is full, then anyone not paid and paperwork not received will be dropped to make room for others on the waitlist.


We'd like to say a huge thanks to our event organizer, Chuck Butler! Chuck has been running events here in North Carolina for years and is the reason this event can happen. We would also like to thank the UNC Charlotte Student Involvement office, who have helped us set-up this event as well.



Some important rules:


We have been asked to not solder inside of the venue. Instead, a soldering station will be set up directly outside, with a few soldering irons and solder provided.


No flame weapons.

900 MHz, 2.4GHz, or spectrum radios are required. Any other frequency must have prior approval.

No gas-powered robots.

If you are using LiPo’s, you must have LiPo bags. All Lipo batteries must be in a LiPo bag while charging.

Bring your own power strips.

A weapon lock is required for all weapons. 

A switch and power light are required. A jumper is acceptable in place of a switch as long as it can be easily and quickly connected and disconnected.
