I am really liking the look of that front wedge!

Cheers, I'm really pleased with how it turned out, even when it's this thin grade 5 titanium is a real pain to work with.

Team Zero, ready for AWS 56!

Look closely and you'll see a few changes on Valkyrie, all designed to beef up the front/weapon mount area. With the upgrades to Valkyrie and Axiom, and old reliable Zero, this should be a fairly competitive team, bring on Saturday!

Looking good! which one has to sit out, or do you have a second driver?

Cheers, Vampire (overhead bar spinner) is sitting this one out, I haven't got around to fitting the new weapon esc yet (the current one has some bits missing) so it'll be on rumble duty only.

Looking good as always. I'd missed your post about Axiom getting a new front end. Looks cool AF.

Sad I can't come to see them tomorrow. I still want to fight against Valkyrie one day. Maybe ant freeze 6 if you are planning on going.

AWS 56 provided a rather different set of results compared to last time, with my worst set of results since I started roboteering!

Zero went out without a win, with neither fight being particularly memorable. Axiom started well with a hard fought and entertaining win over Dark Matter 5, its new wedge proving very robust, but lost its next 2 to go out. It did win the BBB rumble though.

I had high hopes for the upgraded Valkyrie after its 4th place last time, and if you wanted to put a positive spin on it you could say it won 100% of its fights. Unfortunately it only had one; just before the 2nd fight the NanoTwo relinquished its magic smoke and declined to operate any further. :cry:

I still had a great time though, and will be back stronger next time.

Just some slo-mo shots of Vampire doing its thing at the BBB halloween event...

Vamp may not be very competitive, but it does pack a punch when it's working.
The whole event was great fun, I had a blast.
