  • The three screws holding the bot and the skids in place were difficult to remove because of the threaded standoff in the middle
  • Exposed space above and below the weapon ring can be exploited/allows small enemies to evade the weapon
  • The motor controller had loose connections
  • Weapon ring prone to slipping off the burnt down rubber bearing ring, due to the softness and malleability of the rubber.
  • Wheels were prone to becoming loose and slipping off the drive motor shaft

Good aspects

  • Can attack from all sides
  • Has no exposed, non-attacking sides
  • Can drive right side up and up-side-down
  • Most Parts are easy to remove/repair/replace
  • Relatively difficult to damage severely


  • Change the rubber rings to plastic or Teflon (fixes issue of ring falling off)
  • Find a better way to secure the wheels to the motors
  • Make the robot thinner
  • Make the weapon closer to the ground, and cover more of the robot
  • Find a better way to hold the robot together
