Then all I have to do is get the logo laser cut for ...

Thanks for all of the nice comments. This is the first time that I have used HDPE and I am very impressed, it was easy to cut and work with and so far seems more than strong enough for the chassis. I will be fitting the drive and plumbing the flipper tomorrow- I will try to get some videos online wh...

Dave,

I will be at Barnesly with 5 robots- I look forward to fighting it with aftershock (might fly quite well) :D

Also joke robots can do quite well (I build my brothers robot Splash in a day and at robots live burgess hill it beat 8 feathers in one fight)

It is looking very likely that Tidal Wave 2 will be finished in time although it won't be fighting because it is my D.T project for school. Is it ok if I film a test between shows??

Also if ants are running I might have one by then.
