Hi

I thought the robot Type letters ran from largest to smallest?

Bill Boyer's current Table Top Robotics (TTR) size specifications are as follows:
  a.. Type A -- 10 cm x 10 cm (about 4"X4") -- 500 grams or less (about 1.1 lbs)
  b.. Type B -- 15 cm x 15 cm (about 6"X6") -- 1 kilograms or less (about 2.2 lbs)
  c.. Type C -- 20 cm x 20 cm (about 8"X8") -- 1 kilograms or less (about 2.2 lbs)
The reason for this question is that with the Type letters running the other way it would
be easy to add a "micro-sumo" and "nano-sumo" Types that someone else suggested
to the series. Also, as I remember, the weight for the 20 cm x 20 cm was larger ( I think
something like 2 Kg). I suggest we go with the Japanese Sumo 3 Kg as the limit.  So
I suggest changing the Table Top Robotics (TTR) size specifications  as follows :
  a.. Type A -- 20 cm x 20 cm (about 8"X8")   -- 3 kilograms or less (about 6.6 lbs)
  b.. Type B -- 15 cm x 15 cm (about 6"X6")   -- 1 kilograms or less (about 2.2 lbs)
  c.. Type C -- 10 cm x 10 cm (about 4"X4")   -- 500 grams or less (about 1.1 lbs)
  d.. Type D --   5 cm x  5 cm (about 2"X2")   -- ??? grams or less
  e.. Type E -- 2.5 cm x 2.5 cm (about 1"X1") -- ??? grams or less
Regards
