    So Kaizen came out of Chatham in one piece which I was most grateful for, despite meeting a couple of spinners. All videos are from Team Ironclads Whiteboard - Kaizen vs Audacious So I described...

    Thanks folks. Had a whiteboard match today with Audicious today, a fellow Middleweight. Kaizen did me proud, charged straight into it and Audicious eventually stopped moving (thnk they were...

    So Kaizen is ready as it will ever be. At the last minute, I fitted a 10mm thick polycarbonate wedge plate, primarily to square off the the side armour panels but also to deflect the ubiquitous...

    There is a function in the SimonK assembly which can hard code how many cells it is expecting (CELL_COUNT) and get it to bleep how many cells it is detecting before arming (BLIP_CELL_COUNT) so I'd...

    Looks good. I might suggest some top padding/extra armour over the battery area as that top armour looks fairly thin to me. If you need to get some weight reduction in, I'd possibly look at the...

    I've got a little bit of experience in programming the 100A v2 version. I don't recall if the SimonK code specifies the number of cells in it, I'll check a little later on tonight.

    I'd also recommend taking a look at the build diaries as they contain a wealth of information about what works and what doesn't work with regards to electronics/batteries/materials. My first attempt...

    Well here we are, 31.2kg of Kaizen 1.0. The good news is that it moves fine, even on a very uneven wooden floor. Bad news, the pinion gear for the axe has slipped off again so I'll get that reseated...

    Stay tuned.... you’ll see what the playing field’s like. In fairness, we’ve got a fantastic blend of different classes to really show off middleweights as a whole, couldn’t be prouder to see them all

    Haha, oh boy.... Have you seen the lineup, looks gruesome to say the least Kaizen does look really solid though, plus will probably absorb many hits, good luck!

    Interesting, did not know they were prone to burning up. I did briefly consider fitting one to the axe but it would overrun the main section of the robot if I did that without a bevel gear.
