After helping to set up on Friday evening, and Saturday morning, I got my brand new robot, Satanix 1.666 charged
and tech checked, only to discover that my radio gear couldn't handle the new full-steel chassis, and so I had to convert
to Spektrum, but then another problem occoured.
I found that the battery pack in Satanix was crashing every time I hit full throttle, so I had to keep gently ramping
it up or it would stutter and falter around.
The robot went into its competition fight and was promptly stuck between the wall and the floor (see below). Great start
Satanix was doomed to sit the event out with all these faliures
I did however still enjoy the event, with lots of great fights and some great moments, like Tornado balancing on edge
on Pressure's top, Tornado being beaten by a robotic TYRE (Puck), and a 1 in a million axe shot taking out Bigger Brother's
But the highlight for me was the after show fight between an oldskool Featherweight named I.R (you talking to I.R ?)
and the mighty Heavyweight Tiberius. The result was very funny, with I.R taking horrendus damage, but still rolling after
12 bites of the 4-Ton pressure beak.
Next stop, AWS 27 :)
