If that (huge vert) gets into a competition, I think it will pick up "best engineered" very, very easily!

I hope you are one of the judges then ;) Thanks

If Rolex made Antweights...
Certainly a thing of beauty. Now you just need to get some driving practice. Sounds extreme but if you don't have a full size enclosed arena, might be worth making a second weapon of the same weight/dimensions but without teeth - just a smooth ring. That way you can safely drive it around and get used to the (probably very considerable) gyro effects without maiming anyone. The best spinner weapon in the world is useless if you can't land a blow on the enemy.

Thanks Carbide! Looking forward to getting the wires in, calling it finished and then getting back to the walker bot. The legs mechanism just burnt me out on that one... so many little rods >.>

Solid advice I think! I cant drive at all :roll: "Concussion" Nick lives down the road from me and mentioned he wanted to build an arena (which will no doubt be made from 80% polycarb and at least 20% LEDs!) . So I may nag him to practice there. Or Dorset Tech mentioned their antweight club was starting again soon. Soooo could be fun there too, get a few practice fights in also.
Will put the disk on backwards for testing :D Then pray it turns corners lol

I just ordered a couple of those for my Fleaweight.
You have to order them from the European section as the UK are not open due to Government restrictions.

Those are the ones I used for the Spin Twins. Lovely little motors but be careful not to run them stalled - the wires are rather thin! :oops:
