Here we go a post event write up on Bunny-Ears' and my sister's performance at the AWS 51 yesterday.

First of all, it was a fantastic time and it actually got my heart racing.

First fight:
So for the first fight Jessica took control of Bunny-Ears when it went up against one of Dave's robots (I forgot what it was called) and well as expected Bunny-Ears lost but Jessica managed to give Dave a run for his money, not bad for a 8 year old. Sadly Bunny-Ears struggled to get a attack, even Jessica noticed the lack of speed in Bunny-Ears' movements. This was also the only fight we took damage.. a small indent in the flipper arm.

Second fight:
This time I took the controls for Bunny-Ears VS Phantom Fox, a very exciting fight (took a while for my heart rate to relax after) odd thing was Bunny-Ears struggled to self-right in testing, so I was pleased and surprised that I was able to get back up right so often. Nearly lasting the full 3 minutes only to be flipped out in the last 10 seconds. Drained the battery in this one.


So it's clear that Bunny-Ears is a improvement over Killer-Wolf, managed to solve the main drive issue of driving straight now just need to improve:
  • Speed
    Grip
    Pushing power
Considering how the other robots seem to be faster at turning and getting around the arena looks like I need to work on getting up to pace.

Grip should be the easiest to improve just change to better wheels/ tyres.
Speed on the other hand might need more thinking, need to look into what gear ratio I should be using for more speed and see if the size of the wheels have a big factor in the performance.

another thing I learnt was what the little strip of plastic was for, Alex told me that it is acetate and helps robots get under other robots.

Ok I'll work on that and other improvements for Bunny-Ears and Killer-Wolf 1.5

Grip should improve power as it reduces wheelspin and if you don't want to buy new motors aswell just get Alex to custom make you some 50mm or similar wheels and get them slightly wider than usual then one pair of custom wheels will solve everything as they will make it a lot faster and grippier

Well I asked Alex about the speed reduction in his smaller wheels when he mentioned that most robots use a higher voltage then what I currently use, so part of the problem can be quickly solved, but I might also replace the current wheel like you said with some of Alex's. But I'm browsing for new motors anyway so I'll keep and eye out for faster ones.

I thought she did really well! She deserved the hearty applause!
