Cool Rc Robots
There are many cool rc robots you can choose. Do you want a plain looking rc robot or an intimidating rc robot? The choice is yours as well as how much money and time you want to spend creating your remote control robot.
You can decide on a thwackbot. The thwackbot is described as a battle box with an axe or a hammer on it. These cool rc robots are simple to build. These robots are able to be driven around and they spin in place thus allowing the axe or hammer to spin and attack your opponent. It is quite difficult for these types of robots to attack their opponent. These rc robots need to be controlled while the thwackbot is spinning in place along with the weapon. Your opponent can just wait for your robot to stop spinning and stay out of harms way. This is also known as the 'melty-brain'.
A lifter will lift its wedge to make the opponent come off of its driving wheels. An upgrade from the lifter is the flipper. The cool thing about the flipper is you will actually be able to flip the other robot over. Following this cool rc robot is the bot chucker. Bot chuckers can throw their opponents a few feet into the air.
Battleboxes come with a frame, loads of armor and a drive train. Once the battlebox newness has worn off from the owner, they replace it with a wedge. The wedge is a simple design that may look boring to many people due to the lack of tough looking weapons or other tricky robot manuevers such as the spinner. Although it may look boring, the wedge works very well when combating other rc robots. This type of cool rc robot wins many times over again and again.
Spinners are one of the very cool rc robots. The good news is that spinners are simple to make when the bar and disk spinners are included together. You can put the spin bar horizontally or vertically. When you put the spin bar horizontally it will help the stability of your robot. The bad news is when you spin into the other robot, your robot will probably go flying in the air as well as the other robot. If you decide to place the spin bar vertically you will probably just throw your opponent's robot into the air. You must be experienced in doing this type of maneuver as you may tilt your robot and lose driving power or slow down the spinning rate.
The over-head hammer bot is a popular cool rc robot. If you are at a tournament, you will notice the crowd cheering and screaming for your robot to win. The way this robot attacks is that it swings a hammer and tries to hit the opponent. It will try to really smash into the other robot or at least make holes on the top of the robot. It takes time to perfect this maneuver. Once you have perfected it, you will win many tournaments with this maneuver.
You have a variety of choices when it comes to cool rc robots.
