    Definitely get a flip in, it does look pretty impressive when it does do a flip ;)

    I have some Neoprene rubber strips that I was meant to attach to the front wheels but didn't have time to do. As for the sides, yes, same size box armour on the sides to replace the brackets and then...

    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...

    The wedge looks very nice! Good looking angle, I'll be keeping an eye out for the results. Good look!

    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...

    Seems you had a run of real bad luck, but I think Strix is a fine looking machine, and if the linac behaved it would have been a different story... On the plus side, no damage!! Have you looked at...
