that moment when at first glance you think "cool rear hinged lifter* then see a front hinged version and your mind just fails to compute the possibility
I'm contractually obligated to make front hinged versions of all my bots if I can  :laughing

well for that bot in particular im pretty sure it will make your life harder but im guessing its one of those why the f*ck not situations?
Not really. It was a fairly easy conversion, and the front hinge config is probably more effective due to the much better wedge and stronger drive too.

what i meant was the wedge looked too steep to be a front hinged flipper, although that may just be the picture making it look that way
It's fairly steep but it doesn't seem to have had too many issues ATM. I may make it shallower though yeah.

Edit: Made some changes to make the wedge shallower. Think it actually looks better with a shallower wedge too, and it should also be more effective.

Thanks for the advice and feedback on the last bot everyone. Here's another. Rather underweight and underpowered CW based on a bee that was originally intended to be an MW but I couldn't get it in weight. This is The Apiarist. Vertical spinner powered by a perm 80, drive is 2 TWMR drives and it has 1 black and 1 ant for power. Armour is mostly Ti with the bottom being aluminium. 557.2 KG

Upped the weapon motor to a Perm 132 because it didn't actually look as bad as I thought it would and I could fit it by reshuffling the insides a bit. Now weighs 599.5KG so right on the CW limit, but should actually be slightly less underpowered now.

Cheers Badnik. Who made the Bat? Never heard of it so I'd be interested to see what it looks like.

In keeping with my recent tradition of posting every single time I make an update to a bot in a vain attempt to get people to leave feedback, here's another update to The Apiarist. Decided it would benefit from bigger, more destructive teeth that are better at overturning opponents now that it actually has the motor power to do so, so I switched the 4 matilda teeth I had previously for 2 small typhoon teeth. Seems much more effective now, and also actually sometimes self-rights now too.

i will hold up the torch and give feedback

good to see typhoon teeth on it so it can now actually do damage and flip bots over (which is one of my favorite parts about using big vertical discs)

about the self righting, if you were (now hear me out on this) to one up the discs size and raise it a little higher to compensate for it being a little bigger it would probably self right without fail, im saying this because thats what happened with ravager. (which is currently my best heavyweight although i haven't posted the updated version of it on my own showcase yet)

i one upped its disc and it immediately after that was able to self right almost instantly after it was turned oh and the fact that your using small typhoon teeth is even better because the disc will be less likely to stop when it hits the floor.

of course im saying all this while its right on the weight limit but from the looks of it its got armor panels all around it, what is the chassis armor?

if you were to take this suggestion on board you could lower the armor a little on the chassis to get enough weight of course you don't have too and can completely disregard the suggestion, completely up to you

Even if I were to raise the height of the disc I think it would still cut through some internals making it not IRL legal. Chassis armour wise even dropping it down to plastic 1 only gives me an extra 4KG-ish to play with due to the chassis being only a 1x1, which isn't really enough to enlarge the disc.

New bot and my first non-extenderbot in a very long time. Designed to look/function like a bot from the original 1994-97 US RW so it's fairly basic in it's design but I'm rather happy with how it came out despite its simplicity. 573.2 KG, 6 slimbody drive. 2 battlepacks and an ant for power, and Alu10 chassis armour.

Not massively so but 6 of them are more than enough to get a CW along at decent speed. Didn't want to go mental on the drive even though I probably could have though because it's meant to be in the style of very early US Robot Wars machines.

Returning to The Apiarist because I'd been wanting to make a HW version with srimech wings since I made the first version. Couldn't think how to with the internals as cramped as they were though. Nonetheless I thought I'd have a crack and an hour and a half and a total internal redesign later here we are. Slow as sh** as it's a HW with 2 TWMR drives for drive and the new wheel placement is less than ideal but the lack of space forced my hand, and fairly lacking in battery with only 1 battlepack and 2 ants, but it works and as far as I know it's IRL. 2 Very small VDMAs for the self righting wings, 1 perm 132 for the disc, which has been upped to 4 typhoon teeth so it's pretty lethal, and the armour even remains all Ti except the underpanel. Rather chuffed with this one.

i like the idea of the wings but the design of them looks a bit on the goofy side. everything else looks pretty good.

i really like the shape of the rammer though.

It probably just looks goofy because it's not bee-like enough. Maybe add black stripes and a stinger to the rear?
