Manta ray and anything about it.

Post by TeamScrewUp » Sun Jul 29, 2018 7:39 pm

you all know manta ray right? The robot that sucked at 54 and got joint 5th at 55. Yeah me neither. But i have been working on things for 56 (whenever that is) to make manta ray sadder. And better. Using a plastic face instead of foamboard for starters. Which can take a hammer hit pretty well. So it shouldn't be too bad against spinners.

On a side note. For anyone who is wondering. The foamboard face on manta ray. And the answer is to stop spinners from hitting anything solid. Which can stop them launching manta ray around.

I'm like to see the changes you make to the bot, making it your own!

Yeah i learned it isn't so good against vertical spinners with wedges. I would love to make it my own at some point. But for now i have to stick with kits and my other robots. Though i have plans for my own robots

Add on for manta ray (obviously):

After 55 coming out 5th place i need to get new wheels. I think with spare wheels, batteries and not losing a screw and a bolt for a motor mount (need to sort that out) it could get at least in top 3. Maybe. I could've asked shakey or someone else at the event for said screw and bolt. But i wasn't thinking about it at the time. (Shakey as an example because he was closest) anyway. Other than that. The wedge might stay steel. Because other than with Test Robot Please Ignore. It held ip well. Taking little to bo damage against holey moley and combat ant. Then again, they were grinding against a flat area. So i guess that is why. The tyres are the damaged part. So i could just swap out the tyres. Who knows.
