TheRoboteer's Hit or Miss DSL Showcase

<< < (2/242) > >>

R01:
I'd use the 45 degree connectors instead of the old stock angle connectors, will look better visually, as for wedges, if you want to have something I'd maybe try some 45 degree angle connectors on extenders or alternatively build a "spinner killer" wedge from a armor plate, wedge piece and side armor plates.

TheRoboteer:
Edited Tommib III to make some of the changes you guys suggested. I present to you TOMMIB IV!



Tried to make all of the changes you guys suggested. Skirt wedge is gone in favour of a steel armour plate "spinner killer" wedge. Chassis has been shrunk slightly and some batteries removed (Had to use smaller wheels though and the motors seem to be clipping through the rear of the bot slightly because of this though. Also the srimech is slightly janky now)

Only change I didn't make was changing the stock angle connectors on the spinner supports for DSL angle pieces. My extender skills are terrible, and it came out looking awful when I tried to do it.

Internals of the bot can be seen here. This is with the steel top armour removed so that you can see the components better.



Badger:
you still don't need those 2 big batteries, use the 1 long black one, make the chassis height lower, and maybe move the drive motors further apart and use the extra weight for some cool wheelguards. Lookin good tho!

Chassis is as low as it can go and still fit a Perm-132. Toyed with the idea of external wheelguards but it looked a bit clunky when I tried it. I'll reduce the number of batteries further though, I'm just paranoid about the srimech using up tons of power (I know that spin motors use basically no power)

Badger:
truth be told, powerful enough VS don't really need a srimech, as their disc spins quick enough to launch them the right way up. There's a reason a lot of newbs have dedicated srimech on their bots and nearly no experienced builders do, there's always better stuff to spend your weight on. I still think 2 battlepacks is the most you're gonna need for this bot even if you wanna keep the srimech, if you're using the srimech constantly you're probably going to lose the fight anyway, and if not you won't have battery issues.
