It's a cool idea. The only robot I've seen similar is Pump.

My my, what a large blade you have! Looks good Very Happy can you stick some plastic under the weapon shaft so it drives a bit better?

Hey guys- thanks for the feedback😄 Good idea on the plastic there Glen- i could drill out the tip of the m16 bolt head that rubs along the floor-and then shove some breadbord in the hole🍔 Brilliant that should help -i forgot that the bolt on this version doesn't spin - just slides around♨️

If you upgrade it later on, you can rename it Complete Tosser Laughing

Well Tosser ended up being called Flipper and had a dolphin theme for gladstone





Looking very cute before the event



After the event looking a little worse for wear- but performed quite well- won all of its sportsman fights and only was beaten by wanda ( thats where most of its damage came from to though face slasher did do a bit of a face slash to) unfortunatly flipper and pickasso didnt get to fight- so will be interesting to see them fight at the next sportman event-my favourite fight with flipper was with praying mantis - its seriously fast for a 3s robot and both bots did some serious flips on each other i think Flipper scraped through with the win because Richard lost a drive chain just before yhe end if the match-was a damn fun event in anycase and good work Don for organizing 😎

Poor old Flipper had a bit of a meld down at our ipswich robotics sports group meet yesterday😱



Not sure exactly what happened as all its electronics is still working- but the lid slammed shut and that jammed the motor - which then made the lipo start smoking up- when i got hone -i plugged in a new motor and everything was working- in thinking the limit switch either moved or didnt stop the winch so it just jammed its self on - it melted the printed switch so there was some serious shorting going on-





Lucky Dion was there to suggest using a car battery jumper pack to open the bot - because the terminals at the back of the winch is exposed - lucky its possible to do that- as the locking mechanism on the other side of the winch was completly jammed😱
Planning to keep this design but rebuild thr bottom half in 4mm ali instead of the 5 mm aluboard that its currently made from🤖
