Looking Great, is it detachable so it can be put on other robots?? also how protected is the back, is the armour you use strong. because if a spinner hits the back it might disable the whole robot.

Its not really detachable as it is held in with double sided tape on this one.
Because the first two are for my granddaughters they are not full combat so are just in ABS they would need a bit more material and made in nylon for full combat.
The other granddaughter likes blue or orange but the sample of blue I had ran out before I finished so I mixed the two colours which worked out better than expected.

Just been updating Combatant my Anticyclone clone.
The weapon motor mount was too flexible causing the spinner blade to rub in various places stopping it from being effective.
Also on taking it apart I found the wheels were a little loose and had moved inwards where they were chewed by the blades.
The new chassis is much stiffer around the mount but due to the introduction of honeycomb at the rear I have saved 10 gms.

The red dye came out much better using it stronger and for longer but I had coloured the tyres assuming it would be pinkish again.
