The Richardson High School Kids have been hard at work and they have completed an AMAZING full redesign of the Blender.

The entire chassis inside has been COMPLETELY redisgned from the ground up with new gravity defying features!!! I won't go into details because I don't want to be the one blamed when the cat gets let out of the bag. Wink
The more experienced builders among you will probably have our new trick figured out by the end of the competition. Very Happy

What do you think of our "arena"?

That's a clever way to have the best weapon depending on what you're up against. I'd personally choose the bar for wedges and anything with non-spinning weapons, and the smaller teeth for anything with a spinning weapon.

i would maybe use it against copperhead. Depends on how they look in person.
With the hieght of the bar you might be able to catch across one of there teeth while they would only really come up underneath the bar but i dont see it getting a good bite

We would only use the bar against a tallish robot like Rhoto. Otherwise we use the teeth. with drum spinners we would most likely use bottom teeth only for we don't have a repeat of last year.

How much does it way with/without the bar? Will you add anything for extra weight when taking off the bar? Are there seperate shells?

there are separate shells. the shell (light one) and the bar equal about 50lb's total. bar by itself is about 40lb's give or take.

the light shell is aluminum? and btw, i don't suggest using the bar on copperhead lol. how tall is it? Copperhead's drum is bigger than you think it is... if we hit up on the bar it'll be much worse for you that us hitting your shell...

Why not? The drum supports should be in range of the bar. Seems like an ideal situation in my opinion.

Then again if the drum catches the bar it might send it flying over the wall like Thunderstruck. Good thing it can deify gravity now.

EDIT: Only after completing a flight course and getting your helicopters license can it deify gravity.
