Hi Zac! This robot is currently registered for "November Necrosis" https://www.robotcombatevents.com/events/538
I started to build this robot out of pure lock down boredom with no set event in mind.
I plan on taking this bot to Seattle, Robot Ruckus and Moto.
Its possible some event EOs could grant this bot a 100 percent walker bonus but its being designed for a strict 50 percent bonus for safety and ease of registration.
The weapon assembly weights 5.5lb but it spins at a modest 105 MPH. Gyro walkers lose mobility and bite at high weapon speeds so slower is better.
The weapon motor is rated for 10s but its only running at 4s to keep temptations at bay.

I know hardly anybody hangs out on these forums anymore, and that robot fighting in the public arena space has taken a pretty big hit with COVID, but it's posts like this that inspire me to get back to work on the crazy ideas I've been kicking around for a while.   I enjoyed your video, and watching you struggle to force the titanium into the shape you wanted brought back memories of similar woes I had with the .050 stuff I was using on Threecoil at one point. What a pain to work with...

Where are you planning to fight with this full combat 12? The drive that an event deadline provides is required for most people to go through the effort you are describing, but it seems like public events will be on hold for a while. A box that holds that monster isn't readily available for most.

Can't wait to learn more about that custom servo! May need that in a bigger bot down the road...

and bristle bots, those 2 seem to be subject of questioning often, just specifically mentioning them to clearly state it would be nice.

We're working on a new hobby weight gyrowalker. I plan to do a full write up once it's finished but I have a few videos already.

1) Bending Titanium        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYQ5ORyBY-I
2) Hub motor assembly      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EjnedhFwxc
3) Weapon spin up         https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSN-fjbc_kM
4) Custom servo         https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRDk_oDm2Fo

More to come!

Can the Sparc rules make clear distinctions on the bonus a gyro walker should receive?

Nothing worse then going to a once a year event and getting almost no data on what you need to improve. I guess this means you've got time to work on magneto for franklin/moto ;) All that said, that Crimson Snow fight was spectacular while you were spinning.
