I realised I hadn't actually looked into fitting the ant servo I planned; I'd just assumed it wouldn't fit. However having removed some of the servo case, I found I could just squeeze it in, albeit there's a little bit of a power bulge in the flipper now. It's not nearly as powerful as I had thought, as I wasn't factoring in running it off 1 cell, but it's better than the Nano servo in there previously; it can lift much higher and with a bit more power, so was definitely worthwhile (though still not quite good enough to self right). It means it weighs about 65g now, but that's more a good thing as It means I don't have to pack it with as much weight.

Aw :-(

BTW, "Power Bulge" is a hilarious name.

Haha, Might have to make a really terrible nano called that :P

I just watched through all the asdfmovies again as my usual source for names, but apart from 'There's something on your face' which better suits a spinner, there's not much more that that series has to offer sadly :L

If you like the Simpsons, things Troy McClure has starred in make great names.

For a really screwed up robot: “Mommy, What’s Wrong With That Man’s Face?”.

Also, I took a quick video of it running around: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MGi-sV ... e=youtu.be
It ends how I expect all fights with this robot to end; with me driving out the arena :roll:

LEDs ruin Harry's filming. I learnt that at the last Reading AWS. Lol

Its really quite impressive though. If you can keep it under control it'll be a serious contender. Have you thought about clustering it with an exact clone?
