in that last picture of Algos, where a screw seems to have ripped out of the titanium plate, what happened? The direction seems odd, was the screw itself hit?

man I am not understanding how you built that thing under a pound, or I suck at my first design lol. My wide drum weapon is 150 grams vs your narrow 75 grams, and my battery is a 2S 800mAH vs your 3S 325mAH. Did I make poor decisions?

thanks for the CAD files, very educational.

The hit that bent the plate oddly was against DDT at Moto. What's odd is the screw seemed undamaged and threaded out just fine. Haven't gone back and figured out exactly what happened there yet. As far as weight goes, it's all a balancing act. With the parts I'm running in Algos I could run even less than 325mAh, but I'd have trouble sourcing the burst current for spin-up, so I've chosen the smallest pack that was capable of providing the power needed.

Hey Mike, any particular reason why you took ball bearings over bushings? At the very least, would bushing of similar ID work fine as a substitute?

Bushings would be workable but you'd need to stay on top of the wear to ensure that the magnets don't start rubbing on the stator. Even with the bearings the stator took a beating, worn bushings would do the same or worse.

congrats!

algos is a pretty amazing bot.  did anyone ever chew up or rip off a wheel?  it seems like the only weakness of algos, and you drive well enough that it is never exposed

It has lost a few wheels over the years. That's the trade off between manuverability/weight and protection

That is one seriously bad-ass axe! I can't wait to see it in action.
