Thinking one of the next posts is going to be on where to get harder to find/pricier materials at the best prices (ie, 7075 alu, AR400, tool steels, magnesium, etc...)

Thoughts?

I think that would be a good post idea.

I agree. It would help if I knew where to go to get materials for my robots like if I wanted to build a hobby, feather....or a heavy for Battlebots in 10 years...

Definitely a good plan. Maybe a post with a quick guide to some common metals and their uses as well?

I agree that a "where to get them" would be way more useful if you also discussed assets and liabilities of materials that are frequently used.  Otherwise it is unlikely that new builders would understand why knowing where to get 7075/grade 5 ti/AR400 is important

That'll be part of the discussion. (After all, a wall of links is a bit dull)

Did a bit of antweight work today.

First up is the replacement for the derpy thwackbot with the massive wheels, here's Gelos v2:



Key Specs:
11.1:1 Silver Sparks
3s Lipo
1.25" wheels
3/32" hardened 4130 wedge
3D printed ABS chassis

Speaking of the printed chassis, here's what it looked like fresh off the printer:



In addition to that, I did a bit of work on Eleos:



Gave it some fresh 2.25" wheels and upgraded the electrical system. It's now running on a 3s Lipo and uses a 9v regulator from Fingertech to power the servo.

This weeks post is up. This time around I'm rambling on a bit about wheel guards:

There's a Magnum775 hidden under the whole assembly.

Figured a picture of the bot with something for scale, say Nyx, would help put the absurdity of the new weapon into context.
