Always good to see people trying out more adventurous ideas.
So far the most successful pneumatic flipper has been Anticide.

That's really cool, I'll definitely echo Pete's comment that it's great to see something a bit unusual. Also, don't worry about the robot being 'perfect' before entering a competition, you learn so much from actually competing and seeing the all the other bots, it's definitely worthwhile.

Few up dates. Waiting for its new esc and receiver to arrive then more gas as in the videos its only running on 50ish psi. So on 100psi its going to be interesting on what it can flip. :)

Try a photo compressor - that's what I use - then you can upload larger files direct to the site. You've normally got to shrink them quite a bit, but they still look fine once you upload them. I think 250KB or thereabouts is the largest they can be. :)
