With Motorama coming up and the Ratbots class theoretically happening I decided to make something.
This is: The End Result of a Series of Poor Decisions.
Cutting out the main body from 3" square tubing with the plasma cutter.
Rough cut main body post plasma-ing.
Chassis after welding the main body to the cross bar and adding the "lipo jail" structure.
Rough mock-up with all wheels in place.
First full power-on test. Everything works, even the weapon esc that already has one side burnt out.
Components consist of:
1x Porter Cable 18v angle grinder
1x Chinese knock-off Magnum 775 gearmotor, originally a spare for Spanky.
1x 2650mAh 6s lipo, originally a spare for Nyx.
2x BR-XL esc's, originally spare weapon escs for Nyx.
1x R610 Orange RX, originally used in Moros iirc.
Weapon options consist of 1 wavy 21" lawnmower blade, one flat 21" lawnmower blade, and one 18" flat lawnmower blade. Waiting on arrival of the flat blades, some flame retardant foam for the battery, and the application of a large amount of duct tape.
