Hoppin's Robots that are DSL
« on: December 17, 2016, 05:49:35 PM »
Ok, so I've made my first 'decent' dsl bot after a while of playing with it.

Tidal is a drum spinner, hopefully is irl but am unsure.

That looks like insufficient battery life.
Also, make sure the drum doesn't collide with the control board.  It seems to be clipping through it in the photo.
If it isn't it'll be IRL.

I've moved to control board and the battery back. Also concerning battery life, fitting another ant battery brings it to 249.1 which makes it a middleweight :/ but I'll see if I can move around some stuff

Quick Suggestion:

You can put your responses to quotes into a single post.

Just keep this in mind in the future.

And don't quad post.

As far as I can see, it has two black batteries and a red battery? That should be fine, I think. Though the best way to see if your robot has enough battery is to just do a bunch of fights and see if it ever runs out.

Try replacing that Ballast for a battery.

Oh, I see, the black thing is a ballast. Yeah, get rid of that and put another red battery in there.

a single red battery isn't cutting it. you need at least one red battery and one ant battery, or one red battery and 2 ants, or 2 red batteries.

I honestly think you might be better off using just 1 weapon motor but making it something slightly more powerful, then you've got less power demands and more weight to add a little extra power anyhow.

I had a couple of ideas in how I could fix it, first changing the wheels to growler wheels, but this has the wheels clipping through the chassis. So I can also remove to 45 degree tite angles of the top. But give me the weight to put in an ant battery.





After note: I think I might try changing the Ti to Al entenders
