Smashing two bots together…. Knightrous 2.0 – Build Part 1

Once again, a new event has been announced and I’m shit out of working robots.
This event is the RoboWars 2024 Nationals, which will be Open Feathersweights!
The first time Opens will have been competing since 2019.

I’ve been kicking an idea around for a while for a new bot, an assymetrical, counter rotating, dual vertical spinner.
But one day, I just happened to spot the remains of The Verdict and Knightrous Wedge sitting on a shelf together and thought, “Hmm, those could almost bolt together…”

And so, we began making a chimera from these two corpses.

Gas bottle vert spinner with a floor shaving wedge…

Let the gutting begin.

Everything removed from The Verdict.

Lol, budget Cobalt…

Time to start cutting up Knightrous Wedge.

First few bits

More and more

Now to cut away more and more to make them join together

Due to weight the plow disc gets cut back to the bar minimum

Close and closer

Now it needs some short term bonds

With it tacked together, I will be able to grind away all the exist wedge and gas bottle till everything matches up nicely.

Till next time…
