Phew those are some thin cross sections.  Keep us posted on how they hold up.

I'll be awaiting the high speed tuning video. Are you going to get the bumb sensor up and running again?

The shield was just a dumb stylistic idea I had at first. But I think it's going to be great at blocking other hammers as well as a little extra ballast.

I feel the cleats are a must with this bot. I just couldn't work out the design to be long enough for what I wanted.

Well  I received my steel parts from discount steel the other day. Just a tiny bit of welding and everything will be ready. The balance point of the axe right where the little x is. After handling it a bit I decided to just save some money and effort and just run one of the large motors for it. One motor was enough to swing a very heavy and long chair, it will do just fine here. plus I was having minor concerns about the two motors syncing up. With that change I have made the bot a little shorter just to save some material.
Here is where I am at now.

And I can bring a drill press. Anything else big I should bring? I have a secret pass so I get to drive right in.

OK I have been keeping this bot pretty quite up till now but I feel the need to be part of a real community again. NOT LIKE FACEBOOK.

So for motorama 2018 I decided I wanted to build a serious sportsman class robot and I wanted to make it some what thematic.
So here is Roger Lord Mortimer. (or a rough cad at least)



Full on brushless axe bot. The electronics will be 2 70a redbricks for the drive and 2 200a redbricks for the weapon. The drive motors will be 2 1100kv 3674s on 1:16 p60s. And the weapon will be 2 1400kv 4465s through a combination block 13:1 bb150 gear box. should be a good time.

That's awesome to hear, I'm glad you are getting some mileage out of them. I have ~25 let to edit.

This post is just to update where parts can be sourced for Big Ripto as hobbyking NO LONGER CARRIES THINGS I LIKE THE MOTORS I USE.

The exact equivalent drive motor Tacon 3674-540XL-15T Brushless Motor 1100KV. Better yet it's on sale, it usually runs 36$

The closest equivalent weapon motor Tacon 4475-12T Brushless Motor 1200KV. It's down some kv from what I run but that's not a big deal. the only difference I don't care for is a 5mm shaft instead of 6mm. But this also means you can stuff it into any 775 capable gearbox, like the BB150....

Hey you asked me at moto about my big motors and using them for drive. well I have a solution. Tacon has several 4475 size motors that have 5mm shafts. which would go PERFECTLY with BB150s. I would probably use the 700kv and Redbrick 125s that have been flashed (tutorial coming I swear this time)
