Video of Kwijebo weapon testing, the leg mech is more obvious too.

I have a problem with the signal cutting out with the drive and spinner going. I am upgrading it to a spektrum RX and putting some bigger battery wires in. Lint roller is on the way for some more grip as well, lots of friction on the wedge.

I have also updated the drive of anticide to polulu motors so a little extra speed.
