Beetleweights - Team Knightrous

With the first lot of parts rolling in, I guess it's time to start a build thread.

My first beetle is going to be a super simple pushy bot either going with 4WD wedge with bogey drives (ala Stainless Steel Rat) or a billet 4WD brick with a set of prong wedges (ala Farmboy). I just want something simple to compete with that I just charge and drive.

The basic specs are:

Drive: 4x GM25 motors @ 11.1v
Electronics: 2x BotBitz 10A's, FingerTech Switch, OrangeRX R610
Battery: 370mAh 11.1v 3S Nanotech LiPol 25-40C
Armour: Various mix of Aluminium, Hardox, Saw blades, Spatula or Polycarbonate.

Eventual plan is to build a melty brain beetleweight, but we'll start off simple first till I'm acclimatised to this weight class.
