I CADed special gearbox housings that exactly replicated the supplied plastic housing on those drill motors so that they would't break.

I like the idea of that :) The 'build it like its a kit' approach is how I did Morgrugyn II, and the way I intend to do my new project. Can't wait to see the next instalment.

Build part 2. Not sure if it's legal (don't have my cube) but it should make a fine run-all-day robot.

Looks very good :)

Curiously enough Jack Orr found a cube on the bench at Richmond after you left...

:) That'll be the one I lent him and didn't take back - I'll be collecting it in Germany on Saturday!

It LOOKS legal. lol. Or, if it isn't, looks like it'll be an easy fix to make it so. I like it a lot, deceptively rustic looking, but I bet its hard to beat!

Thanks Dave, I only drove it for a minute yesterday, It wasn't built as a serious robot, It's really for the scouts to drive tomorrow but I think its advantage is that it should be really reliable - I know all the components, and they're all good ones, and it's all bolted together.
It drives fast but in a reliable way and the flipper is controlled by a switch so it's faster than Kitty's.
It's sporting a 500mAh battery (that would be downgraded to a 130mAh for an AWS) so it also has enough access to power to keep it running reliably, and the HS82MG servo is fast and powerful and isn't too greedy.

It will be interesting to see it driven by newcomers at Brighton.

Have you decided which three you're putting into the AWS? Dynamite and Fast Dalek are a given, but the other was TBC.

Tricky. It would be nice if a robot called Pinky did well.

You could do a compare and contrast test by putting both Dynamites in.

Simon

looks good. I like the idea of an easy entry into the hobby, especially with the threads "how to get into the hobby"
I started out with nothing and still have most of it left
