As of right now here is how all of my bots stand for Franklin Institute next month:
Hercules is complete. I need to get some photos of it uploaded but it will sit as is for the next month until the competition.
Barrel Roll needs a new drum. The old one that it has now wobbles too much to be effective at higher rpms. To fix this issue I have redesigned the drum to be a pair of CNC plasma cut AR400 Discs with a UHMW spacer in between. This drum will hopefully be more balanced and be able to deliver the hits that I designed Barrel Roll to do.
Butcher still has a lot of work to go. I'm currently machining the end caps for the weapon shaft and sending the steel out for the disc to be waterjet from. I still have to get all of the electronics in order and put the bot through lots of testing before Franklin Institute. Looking at the competition, I have high hopes for my first 12lber at its first event. I need to do everything I can before hand to make sure that I don't end up beating myself in the arena.
