Id say thats the robot at its finished stage. Well the proto type. Its too heavy to enter any contests and is alittle bigger than 4 inches long. Soo mark 2 is in the making :wink:

It is not a binary choice; geared motors can drive a flipper pretty well (in my experience). You don't need to use a servo, which includes lots of gubbins that you don't really need and an inconvenient package (perhaps)
Robot: Betsie - RaspberryPi controlled flipper bot with gyro stablisation - too clever for her own good?
