Re: motor powered axe.

Way back at aws20 and 21 anticide had an axe. I used a large brushed motor and some mod 0.5gears. Original control.was a small.servo and micro switches. I changed this to a home made h bridge. But a scorp mini or decent servo board would definitely work. It was more useful as a grabber than an axe, ...

I built push robots specifically to beat a very good push robot. I would like to be able to build the best flipper, biggest spinner or best grabber. But what's the point when a 4wd or fan robot will probably be more successful. I put this in the rules section to look at how the rules could be change...
