Excellent. Cheer mate, much appreciated.

And getting this back on topic, here's some more fleas!

The one on the left is Shatner's Bassoon, weighing in at a weedy 52g, and on the right is Quark, a slightly more impressive 70.3g. :D

Quark has an axe/hammer, which is mainly there for self righting purposes, but who knows what might happen..... No weapon for Shatner's Bassoon, but I may see what I can sort tomorrow night. Both are also due a shiny new paint job for Saturday. :P

I like the wheels on Shatner's Bassoon, what are they made of? (cake?)

It looks like there's going to be a lot of very good fleas this weekend - will have to step my game up a bit...

Hah, what kind of weird ass cakes have you been eating? They're 3D printing covered in lint roller. Just some spares I had lying around from AWS 35.

EDIT: Oh never mind, I missed my own reference. :P

I think we have over 20 fleas which makes this the biggest FWS too. Little devil still needs a new flipper and chassis but I just have not had the time or money to get it made. On the plus side, Divinity is working better than ever :).

Just been doing a new version of Deflea.
Due to a rapid turn round of the printed chassis (thanks Josh) it has taken just a week from upload of the print file to build of the robot.

At the moment it has polycarb front and rear scoops but I am looking at upgrading to Titanium.
Using lego tracks I finally managed a double ended Defiant copy that just fits the 3 inch cube and weighs in so far at 65 gms

Oh dear. A fine looking fleaweight version of a robot I always had trouble defeating! Good work Peter.
