You thought of building a spinner robot.... hurricanado
This would be the right thing to do. It would have to be a full body spinner.

Fun trivia: the original Robototron corpse (because that all it is now) is now signed by Evil scarecrow.

Also: Evil scarecrow would be a great name for a robot.

Well done with the bots. I really like your shuffle drive. Well deserved sportsmanship award re assembling the bot after getting smashed apart.
Very kind of you to say.

I spent a good Sunday afternoon starting design on the next Crabulon. I shall post some screen shots soon.

Re: AWS56 - 13th October, Bristol

Stil planning to be along but prob down to 1 or two bots. Had a lack of time and some printer issues.

May have a new chap along to give ants a go as well.

full body spinner saftey

So I am having an idea for a full body spinner ant, or at least an ant with the majority of the body covered by the weapon.

My question is, how does one go about doing that safely from a power up/ power down situation?

Thanks
