Good to see you finally giving DSL a crack! Let's see what advice I can give you:

  • You have way too many teeth on that weapon. That's, what... twelve Typhoon teeth? I can't tell if they're Large or Small, but either way, that's very spammy.
  • The disc has zero support, it's just floating in mid-air. That automatically makes it un-IRL. Take another look at 259 and you'll notice the triangular supports holding the weapon in place.
  • Four Slimbody motors doesn't seem like fast enough drive for a HW, especially with those tiny wheels. Once you've reduced the number of Typhoon teeth you can easily bump it up to TWM3Rs.
  • Bizarrely, I think you've gone the opposite route to most rookies and added too few batteries. Two reds will (IIRC) power 4 motors for 3 minutes, and you have 5 motors, not counting the burst for (what I assume is supposed to be) the srimech.
  • You're going to need some armour panels to protect the chassis, because any horizontal spinner is going to chew it to death in a matter of seconds.

A couple of questions, too:

  • Do the teeth bang against the floor when the weapon spins? It looks like they do from the internals shot, but you seem to be driving it okay in the test area.
  • What's the weapon motor? I assume it's a Perm of some description, but I can't see it.

I made a new bot! It's called Naga and its based on Hydra from Battlebots and the Naga boss from the Minecraft mod, The Twilight Forest. It's powered by a IRL Burst at full power.

It looks pretty decent for a builder we haven't seen all that much from. The burst you're using for the flipper is gonna rule it out from being entered into tournaments though. A flipper not being able to self-right is also something that 100% needs rectifying too. I'd go for a longer flipper to solve this. You're using a CB2 burst so there's no shortage of power for you to have a flipper spanning the full length of the bot a la Bronco

I've got to agree with The Roboteer, you should definitely make the flipping arm longer so it can self right. I like the theme, im a sucker for goofy sh**.

I have 2 new robots!
The first one:
 
BIG Splash.jpg

It first had extenders with bars on them as weapons but they would have been fragile so I changed them.
Now here is Grave!

It used to have Hworf blades but I changed them so it can compete in tournements
Also, Naga was more of an experiment with IRL Bursts then a actual robot.

Not bad. You can shrink the chassis on grave a bunch though which will save you a ton of weight, probably enough to drop it down an entire weight class to CW.
I'd remake the chassis to be both lower in height and shorter in terms of length. Keep up the improvement though  :thumbup

Sorry for a bump, even though it's a Bot Showcase, but I decided to update Naga! Now it can self-right, has a new burst that isn't cheatbot2 and also has a new minibot, Naga Segment, which is a distraction bot.
