We had another good showing at the summer Western Allied Robotics combat event. A D2 kit using our prototype titanium blade won overall, after a difficult match versus Allosaurus. Allosaurus is a very capable vertical spinner which has won many of the Western Allied Robotics matches. The final fight included several tosses of the D2 robot against the roof of the arena by Allosaurus, but the durability of the D2 kept it fighting strongly to the end, finally managing to maneuver Allosaurus into the pit. This was an excellent test of the tool steel axles in our 22mm combat robot...
Another good showing for our D2 combat robot kit at the Seattle Bot Battles event. One of our D2 robots finished 2nd overall in the 3 pound “beetleweight” division. The final match was very exciting, as the D2 fought a very successful vertical spinner “Allosaurus”, with the match going to a judges decision. Congratulations to Allosaurus for the overall win!
This is a video of our “D2” 3 pound (beetleweight) combat robot prototype fighting the horizontal spinning blade robot “Debacle”. With the prototype, our main goal was testing durability, so if the driving strategy of D2 in this video looks strange, it’s because the goal was to see how this combat robot prototype holds up hitting a horizontal spinning weapon.
