[The Honey Badger] It is allllliiivvveee

Hey Everyone!

The Honey Badger is alive again! The 110mm wheels arrived today (the 90mm wheels simply don't reach) and I bolted them in. All went well so I went ahead and wired it all together, holding the big things down with that immense building tool - masking tape. :P

TBH, it looks a bit... weird but it immediately made up for it by moving brilliantly. Even with the tiny 1.2ah SLA batteries in it, the thing took off.

I did note a lot of things to do on it, they are:

Buzzing right now. Again, the robot is really low to the ground (talking not much more than 1 or 2mm). The weapon, a reciprocating spear affair will arrive by Friday and I hope to have the motor mounted in the robot by next weekend. The big one to do is still the side panels and that will require effort to get right.

Seeya all on the net!
