This is the Updated PW, Downgraded the weapon motor to add more teeth and a flag to see which direction it will go.

Can you lower the chassis any more? You could use shorter spinner segments and move weight to more armor or (if your lucky) an even bigger weapon motor.

1. That's the lowest chassis I can get
2. 30cm might be a better option but it was to short
3. More than PL3, Anything higher will be MW
4. It had upgraded motor on this pic below

It had DSL bars instead of Typhoon teeth since there too heavy, Smaller one's are also fragile.

If you want, take a risk and go Pl 1. Any robot that's hitting your chassis has either already flipped you over, at which point you're pretty much f***ed, or is hitting your chassis from beneath you, in which case you're also f***ed, so lowering armour saves more weight which can be put into the weapon, which acts as your offense and defence.

You can get a even smaller chassis by dragging the chassis height bar to the very top, then clicking at the very bottom of the bar. Use this, then upgrade your mtor. Then, use a shorter size on the shell panels. Now, use 1 large typhoon teeth on the 2 sides. That's basically it, you should be good to go. If you want more weight, put armour on Plastic 1 for weight saving.

Also (if you're using component freedom at least) you could always tack a poly armor panel on the bottom so you could go pl1 like avalanche said.

Weapon length gets tricky, reach is good but also makes it easier for the shell to stop and get stuck where you can't self right. I'd go large typhoons if possible, small are a good second and more weight friendly.

Ok it's Pl 1 again, this time I added poly armor at the bottom and Larger typhoon teeth, It was effective, but generic.

Updated Ceylon, upgraded the motors so It can go fast, and the problem is that every time it flip something it's going to get stuck on it's back.

It's going to have troubles since the bucket hinges at the bottom instead of at the top, which really reduces your flipping power.
also lol at most toxic guy around calling others out on this sh**

Sure, you could. Front hinged flippers kinda suck when they're AI controlled tho, since front hinged flippers can get more height more easily.

I really think you need to get rid of the storm burst; not only is it super heavy but you're wasting a ton of weight on a big chassis that's a bad shape for a flipper.

And youre prolly gonna need more peer than one black to run a flipper. You'll end up out of juice pretty quick.

Fixed, also I redone the chassis though, and unfortunately I can't join the front hinged master race since it was a regular flipper.

This one is my favorite since it was based on one of my older bots.
