    Is it? I think I'll be lucky to out-wedge and push bots about.

    The shape reminds me a little bit of Firestorm but obviously shorter. Like it though!

    Comes down to traction really. You can have all the power in the world but if you can't put it down, it is of no use. Your design certainly looks fine, especially it it can run inverted.

    Not sure how you see it as looking like Firestorm.

    I see, well we'll see, it should run inverted but I'll have to test it once I finished making the bodywork.

    After 5-6 hours of working today I got most of the 10mm and 20mm HDPE cut and drilled. CSB is nearly ready with its bodywork.

    1) My gran parents have me a pack of 10 bottles for Xmas.
    2) I was more amazed that they had a picture of the old house robots in storage.
    3) No, I already eat it all.
    4) thanks the 10mm was easier then the 20mm.

    Motors now fit into the bulkheads and now I’ve done a rough arrangement of the ESCs, power cables and the cardboard mock up of the Lipo battery. Still need to make the back of the motor mounts, get more 20mm HDPE to make the back plate. Once the threaded inserts and new bolts arrive I can start bolting the base to the bulkheads.

    The FW is really coming together. Threaded inserts added to the bulkheads, now top and base plates are bolted on.



    Motors are now fully mounted.

    Looks very neat, your motor mounts are a darn sight more stable than mine are.
