If you like the Simpsons, things Troy McClure has starred in make great names.

For a really screwed up robot: “Mommy, What’s Wrong With That Man’s Face?”.

LED's are shiny :)

Also, I took a quick video of it running around: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MGi-sV ... e=youtu.be
It ends how I expect all fights with this robot to end; with me driving out the arena :roll:

LEDs ruin Harry's filming. I learnt that at the last Reading AWS. Lol

Its really quite impressive though. If you can keep it under control it'll be a serious contender. Have you thought about clustering it with an exact clone?

I previously thought about building a clone of Haggis and entering those two as my cluster, and I literally had the polycarb and scissors in my hands but I just couldn't be that guy, as I knew I'd end up entering them both separately in the FWS and that just would be un cool :L

Sadly, my 8g robot is in a bit of a state of disrepair atm, and has no on-board mixing so would be on a Blade tx with diagonal drive which could be interesting.. :L Also, as the FWS is after the AWS, I'd rather have a dedicated fourth member of my AWS team so that I don't trash my fleas before the FWS.

Why do I get the feeling you have a mad plan for your 4th?

I may do.. :roll: However I'm still waiting on parts, and I'm not sure I'll have time or tools to build it before the AWS, so am looking at more boring backup ideas.
