I did have a walking cluster ant, each seperate botlet being a fleaweight, but had to take it to bits for various reasons. I know Craig and Pete W have one, and then there's Zupeng and EP. There's a couple of active ones out there at least.

I'll have one up and running soon. 2 speed hacked Park servos with 7.2v li-po and some carbon armour. Nothing special, but at least I'll have something to represent me at fleaweight.

Just designed me a fun flea for AWS20, wether it will get built or not is another matter, but I certainly hope it does. It's called Zenith Jr. , if that gives you any idea of the type of robot it is :P

Ah, another boring, predictable "smaller version of my ant" name. When are you guys gonna get more creative? :roll:

Shh!!

It is renamed now anyway, as I had to change the design due to insanity problems. Havn't decided what to yet though.

Oh, and I'd like a team mate for a cluster ant for the AWS, assuming Hib isn't rebuilding Zupeng.

Creativity in both :P

My fleaweight doesn't have a partner Scott, but my ant team is full up. Try asking Pete for Fleabite, he always let me.
