Ant weight - ARC. Adelaide Robot Combat - SA

Thought it was about time to start documenting and showing my builds.
Currently I have 3 bots, one still being built and one I have reluctantly stopped upgrading to start and keep building my next. The last is the bot bitz one.

The first one is called Dynamo a track wedge bot and have gotten to the 8th design.
I have put the desgin up on http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1215069


The second desgin has unoffically been called Bee. Its a drum spinner bot, on my first working design.

Awesome, a drum bot! Are you using one of the brushed micro gearmotors for the weapon?

When you said you were having issues with weight I didn't realise it was too light Very Happy

I looked at the 5:1 ones for a hammer bot, ended up ordering a 10:1, hoping that'll get here this week. Are you running yours off one of the 10A ESCs?

yep a 10A esc, couldn't find a better suited esc. runs fine, the main issue i had was programming the controller on the weapon. and the sound the weapon drive makes isn't pleasant.

Can't wait to see it in action. Servo activated flipper, or are you going nuts and building a pneumatic one?

I keep saying i wont do any more mods to the dynamo bot but i cant help my self.

2 major changes:
1.I have used an acetone vapor chamber on them to make them shiny, smooth and hopefully stop the layers separating.

2. I changed the escs in them to the bot bitz ones and upgraded to a 3s lipo pack.


Travels heaps straighter now and is easier to drive on these escs compared to the cheap ebay ones.

Thought you'd get a kick out of this James: someone in the USA won an event using a print of your Dynamo design.
