Halfway through building my first antweight, FireArrow. It'll be a basic invertible wedge, but I have aspirations to make an FBS for next summer.

Currently have most of the parts I need, once I order the other half it will be assembled in time for BotBlast in July.

Is it me, or does that one black line on the right hand side of the arrow make it look even more awesome?

Looking pretty good so far. Hopefully it ends up pretty good.

Looks a bit like Apollyon.

That was kinda the plan, it seems the most effective way to make a wedge, plus with Kobalos gone someone needs to keep the AW Apollyon torch aflame.

Everything but the wedge is attached at this point. (observant people may spot a piece of scotch tape I used to attach the wedge for the photo). Also the switch is currently installed, but none of the wiring is done.

Bent back the sides of the wedge for more spinner resistance. Also made the wedge more flush and got some holes up top for the screws that are supposed to go there.
