Naryar's DSL showcase - Oldschool DSL-S with 2.2
« on: April 19, 2008, 09:38:09 AM »
...That's it! I've done it! I've done it!



Finally after several fights Pon2n got destroyed.

Magmatic Revolt V2

As part of the name implies it, this is inspired by Gyratory Revolt by Firebeetle (but less damaging).
But I could not spin up properly without ground support, and this is the reason for the presence of 2 DSL bars, to get some grip one the ground for spinning the wheels/weapons.

The two bars parralel to the discs are for not getting stuck on it's side.

Type: HW... the closest thing I can think of it is an hybrid Giant VS/ Overhead Thwack
Weight: 789.1
Armor: 3mm Plastic
Weapon: Two 250cm disks fitted with 10 irons each, powered by drive Eteks
Drive: Actually it is the weapon
Power: One PC625 and one battlepack



+  Quite good and continuous spinner damage, without mentionning that his weapon has a wide attack radius
+ Definitely damaging overhead thwack (the support ground touching bar can be used like a Frenzy type hammer)
+ Quite difficult to get under safely (very good against popups and most of the flippers)
+ Difficult to stop completely.
+ Chassis out of reach for the majority of bots excepted VS's and hammers
+ Deathpits are not a big threat to him (can even sometimes get out of them)

- Slow
- Unstable (often ends on one "wheel" if turning")
- A lot of inertia (e.g. you must drive him carefully, by example if you turn at full power to do a 180° turn, he continues (a lot of kinetic energy in the discs) and makes 360° turn. Same thing for forward/backward, if you make him charge at full speed against an enemy and the enemy dodges, there are chances he slams into the nearest wall). That makes him a monster to drive. Sentinel is good compared to him.
- Way weaker if the support horizontal bar is ripped off
- Weakest grip I've seen on a bot. Completely useless in tabletop matches

But quite funny to use. Next time, how to make a non-Trinity flying HS...
- Weak armor

Yes they're quite nice. But isn't it difficult to drive a full body drum with such a small support extender?

And they're SHW's. But the seconds looks quite invulnerable.

Oho, the third is really very tight, good job on that. I'm pretty sure I can win 10kg on my bot because the chassis can be still made tighter.

other then the fact that no motor save a 426 HEMI has the power to move this thing its not bad. just the inertia thing you said. ill try to make a HW ver but it cant get much better then what you have.

Use something like two stacked drive E-teks, or servo bursted drive E-teks.

In fact you need drive motors rather than weapon motors, because torque is the key here. And even with drive motors, the discs are quite damaging.

No he is powered by 2 classic hover engines. (cheatbot2)

If you look carefully it is the round ones as you find them in the original RA2.

Really cool bot. It kind of reminds me of Towering Inferno from Battlebots with the gigantic wheels.

@Cuda: OMG! 0_0
Has he ever lost??

not even when i AIed Hammer of justice and played it 10 times. drumzilla wins evey time. you have to the mean 2nd ver and the 3rd ver as the frist one i just had a rugh idea of what i wanted. a couple of guys on the ra2 forums said make it a FULL drum so i came up with this. if the unlimited class of battle bots takes off i know how to make it in real life useing 2 V8 car engines, 1 for each side. i think that would look awsome.

Then use bursted and/or stacked drive Eteks. As said before, you need huge torque to drive this. RPMs are not important.

An AIed Hammer of Justice? Wow, must be a fearsome opponent. Do you think it's a match for DSL HW/SHW bots?

Bump, but i definitely don't care.

This has to be the most random beetleweight EVER.



It has 3 stacked ant batts. 1mm titanium armor.

Nice thing is that he works upside down too, clamp-like.

That's awesome.  Gotta be the smallest weapon-to-bot size ratio ever.  Is it any good in combat?

The weapon is like twice the length of the bot. Now that is a freak. :D
Any comments would be appreciated. :D
