What is that metal rod that looks like it's holding the flipper and servo together on the regular flippy one and where would one get some?

That red front hinged flipper is really nice, and the toaster is a work of art inside and out!

What ESC did you use for that axe robot that went to the Us?
Featherweight under construction.

Antweight to build list: 4Wd lifter, new clusterbot, secret project, walker of some description.

Team Hectic.

I use Vex 29's to power axes and other single channel weapons.

And thanks for the compliments guys! :)

Another few off the line!

First up a rotary lifter that made its way to the US:

Next a pair of bots forming a grabber and a horizontal spinner!

I'm nearing the end of all of these and then I can finally put serious effort into my own team again. All I have left to do is build 1 robot. And design and build 2 others then I am FREE!

That's some amazing bots dude.

For someone like me just starting out to see what is achievable I'm very excited.

Cheers! I'll hopefully get the last couple finished up and displayed here soon, then the real fun can begin with all my personal bottled up crazy designs!

A couple more and one I never got a pic of that came back in for repair:

A Front Hinge!

Ant Crackers And Smash (Individual ants not a cluster)
These had an outing at the last AWS and performed nicely apart from an unknown issue in the motor mounting, was fixed with an application of hot glue though (In combat the fit on the motor loosened a bit allowing them to try and climb out the mounts via the drive gears)!

Image

A lift grab!

One to go, then I'm free to get back to craziness with my own team. Reading my build diary shows a significant lack of manic ant building for myself!
