How did you go about attaching the flipper plate to the wire. Without 3D printed rings to fit through. I can't seem to find a decent hindge system.

I've glued paper clip ends onto the flipper panel which has worked so far. For battle though. I feel glue will not hold for long.

I was thinking maybe using this...

Brass is very heavy why not cut the flipper plate with two tabs on the side which you bend up and drill to fit the rod.

With regards to ordering the DasMikro, should I order option A, B or C. I'm guessing A as it has built-in tank style mixing and I think the robot drives like a tank.

I have a robot with slanted sides, how would I attach that to the base at an angle. Also how do you post pictures, I could show you the cardboard model of my robot so you know what I mean.
