8g is lighter than my sponge one was! (Which is now broken :-( )

Last robot of the weekend:

I wanted to try out those little drive units properly (the only other bot I've built with them was the walker) so I put them together in a little flipper.. and jeeze these things are fast! Got it dialed down to 20% travel adjust and it's only just controllable at full speed... good fun though :) Just need to fit a power switch and charging socket and it'll be done.

It's been almost 8 months since I last built a Nanoweight, and with my original team now getting a little worse for wear, I felt I should get on and build some more.

This one has been half built since January, but I finally took it apart and put it in a new chassis. Meet 'Lousy Concept':

Yes, it is a mini Bad Idea, and it works remarkably well; Drives nicely and smashes up things without throwing itself around.
Should be fun if I can get it in weight; about 25.5g atm and it still needs a charging port.

As procrastination from doing revision, i put together a rather boring little Nano with full sized ant wheels. Was meant to have a servo underneath to lift the wedge Polar Vortex style, but since the drive alone weighs 12g i rather ran out of weight. This will likely end up in lemmings at some point as it's not a bad pusher
