Very nice walking mechnaism though! Looks quicker than the one we put on Zoink. Are you ging to put any grip on the legs to make it push better?

i have a snapped pololu tyre that i am planning on cutting up and sticking to the ends of the legs. doubt it'll last long enough in the arena to push anything though. in fact theres quite a risk of it falling apart but that's just part of the fun of it. :)

my walking mechanisms keep falling apart and i just don't have the time so i'm going to build a roller instead. the fourth member of my fleaweight team will be a walker, it just wont happen before this AWS.

i'm sorry to say the fleaweight project turned out to be another boring two wheel drive pusher. :(
on the plus side, i suppose i must be at least one of the first people ever to enter a fleaweight clusterbot :)

the new one is called “chocolate orange”. it's called that because that's what the people at school have nicknamed me and my girlfriend as a couple. :) it runs very nicely if a bit quick but it has enough power to self right against walls pretty quickly. currently comes in at 63.75 grams aproximately and could probably do with being weighted up a bit.

here's a pic...

after breaking up with my girlfriend i realised i would have to rename chocolate orange as that name has lost it's meaning. i can now announce that the robot's new name will be 360 no scope. for those of you unfamilier with the world of video games, a 360 no scope is a trick shot from call of duty ( aparently! :) it's my brother who's the gamer not me :) ) anyway, i now turn my attention to the fourth member of my fleaweight team which is looking like it's going to be a walker, only this time i'm going to use the leg and cam mechanisms tried and tested by robots such as scutter and shuffleaction. looking forward to getting started although it'll probably be a summer project as percaveering with robot walking mechanisms is probably not the best idea during exam season :)

well at least that one had a wedge, which is more than I could manage with this new one. :) this one just has a ridiculous name.

Buy a load of cheap servos and start gluing them to things; that's how Haggis happened! Though I'm afraid that kit doesn't have a servo connector on it; you said it wasn't going to have a weapon so I decided to leave it off as it gives less bare connectors to short out.

(These are the cheap servos that Bully and Haggis use BTW: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4Pcs-MG90S-Mi ... 43d8ed4fcc )
