New fairyweight that could be Denise 3 but I'm not sure right now.



Markforged Onyx for the body, and a .03" Titanium wedge. I still have some weight left over, so I'll probably beef up the wedge and wheelguards.

I made a facebook page for my team. It won't take the place of SPARC, but I think it's a good idea to show everyone my progress throughout my robot combat hobby in an easily accessible format.

All of my bots are done- I just need to grind down their wedges. It's quite difficult.

Time for some updates

Slim Pickens has a new wedge. It was cut by myself with an angle grinder and Mike Jeffries cleaned it up/bent the sides for me. 1/16 Titanium


Made a pretty crude 150g undercutter. The body is 1/16 lexan spinning a 3mm bar that's 4.5 inches long. It hits pretty hard but I can only go up to like half throttle before its undriveable.


See everyone at Franklin

Franklin Institute 2017 Event Report

Thunder Child had a disappointing 1-2 record, mainly due to unsharpened wedges and getting hung up on my own wedglets (I have some better ideas as to how to prevent them from folding backwards before PCT next month). First match was a great driving fight against Quicksand that I won. Second fight was a loss against the eventual champion Captain Doom- those forks he has are mean. Final loss was to Purple Nation Army in a close wedge match.

Slim Pickens got 4th place going 3-2. First lost was to the eventual champion FireArrow in a close decision- an excellent driving match against Dylan McCarthy. I then beat Commander Doom 2, Someone Else's Problem, and Wedgie before losing to Swamp Woman 2 after a close decision (one of the most entertaining fights I've had nonetheless). Only damage was to a gearbox that I've been running for years and a sheared screw on my wedge.

Thanks to Ed, Beth, and all of the people who helped put on a great event.

Upgrades for PCT include:

Countersink wedge screws on Slim Pickens
Sharpen wedges
Make a spare drive harness for Slim Pickens to reduce amount of soldering at the event
(Potentially) make new wheelguards for Slim Pickens
Find a better way to make sure my wedglets do not get me high-centered

I've been on a quest to design wedglets for my beetleweight for several months. Right now I'm satisfied with my progress.



The outside ones are the D2 Wolverine claws sold on Botkits which are made out of S7. The ones on the inside were made out of 6061 aluminum. I just need to do a lot more grinding away at the excess material. When I fight drums or vertical spinners, I'm going to only use the D2 ones. At some point I'll make a whole set for using against spinners and wedges.



I designed them so that they won't move too far backwards and high-center the bot.

How mobile are you if the floor has seams or is made of wood? I had a lot of trouble keeping a heading when I was using a similar setup
