Comments and General Information:|
I built a full body shell spinner with a bunch of weapon power because I decided it would be the most effective, and the most fun. A brick has beaten it twice now, so perhaps that's a more effective design, but not nearly as much fun. The robot weighs 30 lbs.
Components and Parts:
weapon motors: (2) astro cobalt 940's
drive motors: (2) small Johnson motors from www.robotmarketplace.com, also attached to team whyachi tboxes from the marketplace.
shell: will be 12.5 lbs of steel, but is currently 8.5 lbs of aluminum, with steel teeth.
Speed Controller: Vantec RDFR23
Top speed: too fast @14.4v like 14 mph
Battery: will be (1) 3600 mah nicd battlepack @24v, was that pack and (2) 1700 mah battlepacks @14.4v.
