I finished up these two guys yesterday, they're to be sold to help fund repairs to my featherweight team.

Test Video for the right ant: https://youtu.be/uURhrf_ffhs
The left ant is a rotary flipper so that mechanism can rotate all the way around the chassis.

Post AWS 50 Rundown
I realised I never did one of these!

I Said I Was Sawry:
Not the best of draws plus my inexperience with the robot punished it in this AWS but I was pleased with it and it was a fun robot to try and use. With enough practice I'll have you all running for the pit! :D

Wedge Wedge Wedge:
Surprisingly this seems to be my most competitive bot now even after the dodgy driving we displayed!

OCOSD (Running under Test Robot Please Ignore):
Last minute switch into the team after realising Test was in no fighting shape. This bot did me proud exploding a few bots and managing to place 5th along the way. I'll be a little sad when I actually have to hand it over to its owner might have to build myself one!

ICBINS: It did pretty well but it seems that it just doesn't have the armour to deal with spinners anymore!

As punishment for not winning though I ductaped it to a bot and entered it into Hebocon:

I was looking at being 'original' and designing a 2wd version of breaker box / shockwave and now you built one better than mine and my budget, interesting technique of rotation tho, I might have copied you if I hadn't cut the 3rd and 4th motors off like 20 minutes ago goddamnit

Mine is to be sold so you can still make your own.

If you're interested it uses 2 70 RPM motors for the flipper powered by a single VEX 29 ESC (available for ~£10 from RS). Pretty cheap to build.

I've started the first of the auctions for the flipper, it's starting at pretty much component cost!
