3 stegs as a flipper I like, I'm always a fan for simple yet effective designs.
Cheers lad

What is the swing arc on Ubik?
You could make it into a Robot Wars Series 2 bot if you added some saws under the flipper

No way I can add any additional weaponry. I'm right on the weight limit as-is. The bot is pretty damn potent the way it is currently anyway.

In other news I cleared up some other parts. Made the wedge edge full-width which makes it look a fair bit better IMO, as well as cleaning up the rear end a bunch. These changes actually resulted in a reduction in weight, which I spent on a wee bit more battery power to hopefully stop it from running out.

Here's an update to a single tooth I made a fair while ago that actually attempts to be competitive. The single tooth is gone as a result (I still have a single tooth version since I think it was pretty neat, if hilariously uncompetitive). I also gave it a tankier wedge, a different drive setup (2 TWMR2s instead of 4 slims, which was hella slow). Retains the small VDMA srimech and the standard ass blue and black colour scheme that I default to too  heck

Cool flipper actually. I like the angled track guards in particular. The bump for the flipper is also cool.

As for the weapon, is it a front hinge or rear hinge?

Been doing some tinkering around building lately. Built a bunch of stuff I'm not gonna be showcasing because it's either not finished, not refined, or just flat out too poor to showcase. I did come up with this though, which I think is somewhat passable. It's kinda an HW successor to a CW I built way back when, but with most things just executed a fair bit better. 2 med VDMAs for the flipper, dual NPC fasts for the drive

Double posting cuz I built another thing. Wanted to do an invertible drum, but I still refuse to use flatmotors. This is the result. 2 Perm 80s for the drum work pretty well. If I can find some weight for wedgelets I think this thing could be really competitive.

TY my dude. I've made a couple of changes since I posted it. Added a pair of wedgelets (had to ditch the discs on the side of the drum to get the weight for it, but I think it looks fine without them) and also gave the teeth a bit more bite. Happy with how it looks and I think it could be really competitive now.

*checks watch*

Hoo boy it's been nearly 10 seconds since I built a front hinge. Better fix that.

Here's Crescendo. 2WD NPC fasts, 2 Vsmall VDMA R/Ps for the flipper. Big wide panel which will be super heavy so the flipper won't be all that strong, but should be more than enough nonetheless. All the front is steel to so it should be fairly tanky

Cheers boss

Made a few changes to it. Pink stripe goes over the whole front now since it irked me that it didn't before. Also added some little triangles which aim to stop bots that ride up the wedge from touching the wheels and ****ing up the driving. Finally I tried to clean up the wedgelets a bit since I received some feedback that they could be cleaner. They still aren't 100% perfect, which is annoying, but I think this is as close as I'll get. Really happy with this thing overall now
