Ok, I promised that I would show this in Discord, but I still don't have access to it atm and I absolutely love this concept I have going here
I ask for as much feedback as possible on this one, to see if I can optimize it in any way. And I'm really sorry that the picture is sideways. Imgur was being a pain and I gave up :P
Anyway, returning from the depths of Chicago...Alpha Robotics presents...the return of <big><big><big>FLIP CITY REMIX
Originally a box with a flipping wedge on either side, FCR has been optimized to now become one giant wedge. Gone is the complex mecanum drive and hinged wedges, which has been replaced with a full body wedge and rear 2WD respectively.
So what makes this design so special? It has a flipper on the top and bottom, no matter which way it's flipped. At the top is the FH flipping arm, which is now 5x larger. At the bottom is the RH flipping plate. The back as shown, is curved and has the wheels sticking out towards the back. Not only can it drive off wedges, it can also tumble it's way off of them with the flippers! When upside down, the RH flipper can also be used as kind of a bootleg clamshell flipper. And while there are no monster truck spikes, driving up the wedge is nearly impossible without getting tossed first.
The sides also have Alpha Robotics style free rolling trackballs, making it hard for plows to wedge it from the side, since FCR will just slip off the plow. This also turns the anti stranding process from a tip, to a slip, which prevents it from getting stuck on the walls.
The main strategy of this crazy flipper, is to get under, flip, use the other flipper to turn the wedge the wedge the other way, and repeat this process. There's also strands of LEDs in the back. The building windows on the RH paint job and the poorly drawn DJ volume paint job (
) light up as well.
So all in all, it's a wedge with a flipper either way up, 2WD towards the back, and can dance it's way off of wedges with it's inverted flipper. The recognizable rewind/pause/fast forward trademark plate also returns on the back, right in between the wheels.
The mixtape is too strong :dirk:
Weapon: 6 (4/4)
Expect a cad of this soon. Hopefully TBR and Alex V aren't ashamed of my drawing
