it's fine, if they don't show they don't show. it will be disappointing as all hell but whatever. maybe ill make a 2 day assbot and use the scorp xl. it has a mind of its own but thats just fine for an assbot

over the past two days I pretty much finished up the major work on ripto. I made aluminum end caps to support the weapon shaft and used some tee nut to really secure them to the frame. the whole thing makes for a super solid setup. very pleased with it.


I fully assemblem the weapon setup as well. everything else will wait on speed controllers because I have to run wires behind the frame.

That looks totally awesome.  I like how the entire weapon assembly is a standalone unit. It makes it easier to work on and is pretty strong too.  I like how you are using the plastic in all the ways it is good for (shock mounting, low density = lots of thickness, etc) while adjusting for the things it isn't as good for (end caps for the shaft, tee nuts, embedded nuts for the wedge).  All in all I think it's a great setup.

I want this robot to work so badly. The Ripto design has been a favorite of mine for a while. although not as much as the inclined blade spinner.

Those look like they will be good at deflecting horizontal blows. Should work ok on candy paint too.

received some bb12-45s in the mail today thanks to Joe and tucked them into a nice warm bot. things are just about done now, everything spins.

Looks nice, but why don't you weld your armor? It'd be stronger than that block and bolts by far.
