pic: Introducing Captain USA


#1



Since SSS turned out to be a little hefty for a beetleweight, I decided to give him a brother to make an all-American 12lb multibot- Team America: World Police! Captain USA features a quarter-inch thick steel plow and a 1lb vertical bar spinner. As per the usual hit me with them questions/comments/concerns!

That looks like a good start. Vertical Spinners seem to be the meta right now, at least at the higher levels. My worry right now is that it doesn’t look like you are invertable. I would suggest leaving the back of the rear wheels open, so when you are upside down you rest on them and your weapon, like Bite Force.


#3

You need to move your weapon forward. Nothing is going up that wedge in the 3 lb class, learned that from experience.


#4

Why split the weapon down the middle?

How are you driving the weapon? If the answer to this is related to the answer to my first question, you’re gonna have a bad time.

+1 to what Marcus said about your wedge.

Definitely join the Combat Robotics group on Facebook if you can. Lots of really smart people out there who give excellent advice.

I actually have a plan for this, it is just not in the model yet :wink:

Noted. I had this in the back of my mind but havent gotten around to it yet. Also this robot is 6lbs (This and my shell spinner make up a 12lb multibot)

You guessed it! :o Ill definitely tweak the weapon drive around a bit.
