This post is just to update where parts can be sourced for Big Ripto as hobbyking NO LONGER CARRIES THINGS I LIKE THE MOTORS I USE.

The exact equivalent drive motor Tacon 3674-540XL-15T Brushless Motor 1100KV. Better yet it's on sale, it usually runs 36$

The closest equivalent weapon motor Tacon 4475-12T Brushless Motor 1200KV. It's down some kv from what I run but that's not a big deal. the only difference I don't care for is a 5mm shaft instead of 6mm. But this also means you can stuff it into any 775 capable gearbox, like the BB150....

You did an awesome job on the videos this year. The mixed-speed edited versions of the heavy hitter fights are really well done and are getting a lot of good comments from the people I send the links to. I started a new job in January and last week was my first company-wide robot demo. They enjoyed it so much (in part because of the videos you created) that they're going to have me do another one for our customers at the annual conference we host in April.

I know it takes a ton of time, but it really is a big deal for the builders.

That's awesome to hear, I'm glad you are getting some mileage out of them. I have ~25 let to edit.

High speed of some of the beetle fights would had been cool, but not as cool as big bot big hits for sure

OK I have been keeping this bot pretty quite up till now but I feel the need to be part of a real community again. NOT LIKE FACEBOOK.

So for motorama 2018 I decided I wanted to build a serious sportsman class robot and I wanted to make it some what thematic.
So here is Roger Lord Mortimer. (or a rough cad at least)



Full on brushless axe bot. The electronics will be 2 70a redbricks for the drive and 2 200a redbricks for the weapon. The drive motors will be 2 1100kv 3674s on 1:16 p60s. And the weapon will be 2 1400kv 4465s through a combination block 13:1 bb150 gear box. should be a good time.

You have me seriously worried about my top armor.  I've got a couple small updates to Magneato planned, but nothing that will be happy about anything in your drawing...

Kyle (and Zac, if he's listening):

Rumors are that you typically bring a drill press to the event.  Will that be the case this year?  The Colorado guys are starting to plan on what tools to bring, and a drill press would be very helpful, yet difficult to bring with us.

Zac, the story is that you typically have an arbor press.  Same question, are you bringing it this year?

Thanks!
