The robot consists of a laser cut plywood sub frame under a child’s ride on toy car. The rear wheels are driven by NTM Prop Drive brushless motors with custom gearing. The weapon is another NTM motor driving a horizontal saw via a belt at the front.
The RC car brushless motor controllers and receiver are mounted in the centre of the sub frame and the car bolted on top. The 3s LiPo is mounted in the storage area under the seat. A stuffed unicorn and pin-wheels complete the robot.
It did not do well.
