    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...

    I've not seen any pictures of the competition so a complete shot in the dark. XD I expect Kaizen to come out with some battlescars.

    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.

    Yeah, I did hear that someone was entering a robot called "Cyclone 360" but didn't know who. The 775s are not ideal and weren't intended for Kaizen, more just needing something that works. Now that I...

    The Middleweight class. I think it meets the minimum for that now. This is why I didn't enter the Featherweight championships this year.

    I think it is north of 120 bolts when fully bolted up. There are more to go. Probably has more armour in bolts than actual armour. :p The wedge outline might get something before Chatham but at...
