Experience pointers for the build-off:
  • Like you said, take your time.
  • Pace yourself to finish by Halloween. Gives you time to break and fix it, also come up with a plan for videoing the final product.
  • When it is operational and *fits the completion rules, go ahead and make a complete video even if you are not done.  This gets you locked in even if something catastrophic happens to the tractor later that would not cause it to no longer qualify.  Should you improve the build, you can always make a new updated video!  You will not be forced to use the first one.
  • Don't let other's pace at building discourage your build.  Everyone has different technical skills/tools/and time.  DO let other's ideas and input inspire your build.
  • People will tell you to "do this", "try that", "you should this"...  Ultimately, it is your build.  You build it your way, unless one of those ideas is about safety or you think its a better idea then you can do it.
  • Careful of build-off fatigue.  Give yourself milestones to accomplish, that way when you accomplish them, you feel the sense of success.  That's a positive emotion.  Just endless drone building without goals, can cause burn-out and fatigue.  Many walk away from it to never finish.
  • I would focus on one build at a time.


I thought I would shoot that out there for your build since you said it was the first time to do something like this.

Good Luck!



*complete means:
  • Starts,
  • Runs
  • Drives under its own power.
  • Throttle must be installed and operable remotely (without operator touching engine).
  • Kill switch must be installed and operable without operator touching engine.
  • Engine must start with a switch of some type or be pull-start.
  • Braking system must be installed and functional.
  • Steering system must be installed and functional.

Np man! You have all year but make sure you keep working on it regularly and leave a couple months near the end for any changes you want to make and finishing touches. It's really time consuming when it's all custom and I've screwed myself by walking away for periods of time.

All of @MightyRazes advice is solid, wish I'd followed that a bit more closely! Lol
