Nice build. I assume you're using DSL 2.3, due to the components you're using?
2.2 but with a bunch of additional mods which are generally used in IRL building. Sometimes goes by the name DSL2.2 Complete Edition.

That looks pretty awesome. Also, what material did you use to make the chassis? Aluminium or titanium?
Mostly Alu with some frontal pieces being steel. Weight was a real issue here.

HW vert thing. Honestly didn't come out how I wanted, but I don't think it looks bad nonetheless. 2NPC fast drive and a perm for the bar

Double post but my last bot doesn't seem to be gaining any traction so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Decided to do an HW, front hinge version of Apogee, and I'm super chuffed with how it came out as I was able to get pretty much everything I wanted in and have it look good. Dual VDMA front hinges for the bursts, which is my standard setup for front hinges as seen on Bocuma and Sabre, but with more drive than both of those (2 NPC fasts and 2 TWMRs, which I think provides the best speed/controllability balance of any motor setup barring 4 regular NPCs). Mostly steel armour around the front and sides too, and a set of hinged wedgelets at the front. I think it looks pretty good too. Ceratinly better than the CW front hinged version of Apogee, and IMO better than the original rear hinged HW version too.

Dude I love both of them, I can't decide which I like more

Apogee is really nice, I especially like the wedge/forks, but the little extender holes on the wheel guards are ever so slightly annoying. I like Lamentation too, and the dedication to not use flatmotors is rad

The holes in the extenders in front of the wheels were deliberate since I thought it looked interesting. Can probably change it if people think it looks bad but I kinda like it personally.

Apogee is probably the best looking front hinged flipper I’ve seen.
I have a DSL showcase.

TY man. It's not quite my personal favourite of the many front hinges I've built but I'm really happy with how it came out all in all. Should be reasonably competitive too

New thing. Had this idea for a kinda GBH-style lifting wedge thing in my mind for a bit and it kinda morphed into this as I built it. Fairly happy with how it came out looking in the end. Dual NPC fast drive and a long VDMA for the weapon. Wedge is all Ti, pretty much everything else is Alu. No srimech and not invertible but it's not supposed to be a competitive build.

Achtually perfechtion ish unachievable!!!

Anyways, I like it a lot, and I especially like the teeth under the wedge. It’s a cool concept and if you could pack a srimech in there I think it’d be pretty competitive

Great build, try more weapons. I like the texturing of the panels you used.

I don't think you understand the point of IRL yet.

I'm still not sure how to feel about the lifting wedge.The rest is cool.

It's a DSL-IRL bot if you assume things like add teeth or something. And also, the panels are components and not reskinned. It just look like that because if the lighting

Did a version of it where only the centre part of the wedge is a flipper. Certainly more effective, and surprisingly powerful, but IMO less novel than the original version. Nonetheless it's an option.

I liked the full front end flipper version better, had a foxic quality to it. I would also worry about stability if one wedge end is destroyed.

Nicely done. You do need more defense on the back side, though.

It's an IRL bot. Plus in AI tournaments 9 times out of 10 the bots are front-on to each other. Why waste weight on defending somewhere you'll rarely need it

I liked the full front end flipper version better, had a foxic quality to it. I would also worry about stability if one wedge end is destroyed.
I also like the original one more. The second one exists since there were a few people who said they thought the lifting wedge looked a bit weird, so I figured there was no harm in having an alternate config like that.

The wedgelets being destroyed shouldn't be too much of an issue since they're protected by the wedge most of the time
