I appreciate all the advise I can get! and with it I've created a much better drum spinner. Even if it is basically a Minotaur clone

(Image removed from quote.) (Image removed from quote.)
(Image removed from quote.) (Image removed from quote.) decided to go back to simplicity with the drum
(Image removed from quote.) It isn't 100% protected but it does have Alu 10 armour

Any comments?

Certainly nice, and much improved. But there are few more things you can do with it. 1. If you are going to make it a CW (Cruiserweight, 600kg) I would recommend adding some top and bottom armour and protect the flat motors, just use up the 15kg left, if you wanna go for the full 800kg HW, maybe make it 4WD, along with the other suggestions, giving the drum more surface area by making it wider.

Greatly improved I must say, keep it up

While I ponder how best the give Lynx a little improvement I made a robot I've had an idea for a while.
The name says is all really
because f**k spinners! i ran out of room and weight to tidy up the back
pretty simple insides

Plastic 10 armour,2x medium pistons, doubled up medium colson wheels, steel sides with a titanium scoop, 4x slim bodies

It isn't hugely fast and doesn't through bots miles but it's durable which was the whole point

Thoughts?

You've answered one problem yourself. It's slow, on top of this, you'll need more batteries. For weight, Im guessing you are using all Steel armour, you can probs turn the sides down to Titanium if they aren't.

4WD Slimbody drive is pretty bad, get some NPC or NPC-F 2WD in there, and grippier wheels. Also as said by Hoppin, it doesn't have enough batteries. use the weight freed by the former to add more batteries.

Slow and tough doesn't really work if you can't get under your opponent effectively, and fast and tough is superior anyways.

After putting about 6 hours work into this I finally came up with Spinna Killa 2. 5 and a half hours went out into making the scoop not being too heavy that it was able to self right OK. This started out as a kind fun design to deflect spinners but turned into headache so this was the best I could do and I'm done with this design. After finishing this I went to the pub for a well deserved drink!  Tita 3 i think, 797. KG or something I just don't care anymore

all the panels are Titanium(part from the obvious polycarbs) and some of the extenders are Aluminium

Rather nice, love the scoop style you've gone with something I'd like to use myself at some point. Bit boxing but I think that's fine. I think if you can blend the poly a bit better it'd look rather nice.

Keep it up man, doing great

Its definitely an idea that has a lot of potential, ie Behemoth, it just needs a better builder than what I am now to make it top notch, either way i'll put it on the bot exchange as basis

I made another drum spinner, it started out as a Concussion copy but kind of found its own style along the way.


Alu 5 armour
Dual Perm 132 weapon motors
4x black batteries (they're stacked on top of each other)
I couldn't find away of making it invertable so I just let it flip itself back over, It's a bit of an unreliable system. Other than that reasonably happy with the result. And I've always wanted to put nightmare teeth on a drum.

I always wanted to make an Eruption clone and after watching the UK vs RoW RW special I wanted to make a Weber clone.
So I made a kind of hybrid between the two.



alu 3 armour
regular NCP for drive, with hypno wheels
2x short pistons
3x black batteries
aluminium flipper extenders with titanium wedges

Not a fan of the wheels poking out or the yellow extenders connecting the flipper arms. Other than that, it's alright i guess. Needs a good skin.

This pretty much sums up the majority of my robots I think. The problem is I use MS paint when I skin purely because it's quick and easy. I should get a proper image editing programme but with working full time and other IRL things I just can't find the time to learn how to use a new programme really, which is a real shame because I find RA2 is something that you get more out if you put more in but I can't quite find the time.
I appreciate the advise as always!

Make a hole for the wheels in the RA2 skinning window.

while everyone is getting excited about GTMCS I made a beetle weight, and have found him delightfully charming and I don't know why

Plastic 3 armour, short piston, aluminium flipper, slim body motors, micro wheels one red battery
  he's stuck he's free

I liked him so much I gave him a little skin, kinda looks like arse though
tends to topple over with sharp turning that's the only issue I've found so far.

comments, advice, criticism?

I made improvements to two of my bots in my series of 'naming robots after cats because I like cats OK!'
Big Cat is now lower due to changing the angle of the wedges and can run invertable by moving the drive motors back and higher up and adding robot X casters (or should that be catsters haha... just me then) also changed the wheel protection to black to make it look meaner.



Lynx now has protection for the flat motors, I thought it might ruin the aesthetics but I kinda managed to style it out so it doesn't look like complete arse on a bicycle.
