Mech-Warefare.Com , Cyler Omnibot /Rad 2.0 W Airsoft Guns

I found out recently that there are leagues of robots out there that do miniature first person and autonomous battles with nerf and airsoft weapons. I wanted to do a robot specifically with my little Brother that would really keep his interest and not be nearly as complicated as the Jarvis project. The walking bipedal is not avail from Dj yet but the good news is beginner class may have tracks or wheels! So this means cyler (this projects tag name at the moment) is eligible to compete. Ironically the local airport league also allows robots to play with people. The torso is a omnibot style , specifically a robie sr. I picked up a rad 2.0 base which will get 12v power making this robot practically all-terrain.

This is my thread for this robot as I don't want to clutter up my larger thread. We have 2 airport guns on the way. Both have a 30 yard range , use 6mm bb .12 gram or others , 120fps , fully auto electric can and plunger and best of all..... 1500 round capacity per hopper. So he can carry 3000 rounds.

Ok this is the cyber fully auto soft air , air soft gun. I found them for 20 each. IM just mounting them to pan brackets for aiming and I believe we talked about using a PS3 Bluetooth controller. I already played with this airport gun. We set out light bulbs and shot at them about 15 ft away , the bb went right through them.

I think we will make this guy partially autonomous , I think there are awesome possibilities with Ezrobot controller. , I already discussed this with my Brother and this robot is getting military style camouflage! If anyone has suggestions on making a effective camouflage that would be great. Also IM looking for options to make the robot quiet and stealthy. IM considering removing the rad motors and putting in continuous servos. That's a bit ahead but you get the idea.

Its too bad I canibalize two robots just for these mods lol.

My secret to lining everything up is square dowels and three drops of super glue. They keep the two chassis's in perfect alignment so I can tape off and epoxy the main seam. The center section on both robots has been epoxied now I just need to do the vertical side seams

Even after all the mods , glueing two a$$ ends of a chassis base together the setup still fits into the original topper....

We finished the epoxy on all the side seams of the hacked up rad 2.0 bases. Also we started trimming down the handle to lighten up the air soft weapon and also improve the looks.

Such a mean looking robot! This little dude looks like he could be home security:)
#74  
Thank you sir! Bret are you bringing a laptop or netbook to control your robot to maker faire? I'm getting a security table with the security cables to keep anyone with sticky fingers from walking off with them. I just need to make sure I get one big enough.
#76  
Alright, I mounting brackets and drilling holes for security cables to lock yours down so you can wonder off a while without worrying someone is gonna snatch your laptop.
#77  
Great news! My Feb order arrived. 2 ez boards and chip to repair an old one.

Yup! Next we need to put in the lasers in each gun for targeting and run wire from the motors in the guns through the robots body.
#80  
OK I stopped at like 80 percent completion on this because I had to wait on the EZB for him. I picked up the parts to wire a charging jack. I'm using a basic headphone jack for a charging port and a basic toggle switch for power on/ off.

OK so I wired a power switch to the battery , a charging circuit to charge even if Cycler is on. The base is two rad bases put together. One gearbox makes noises like it has rocks in it. I'm thinking of lubing it with a heavy grease. All that's left is touch up paint , mount base , screw arms on, wire tip 120 transister to trigger the air soft guns to fire. So its on the last stretch and then we test.
#82  
OK so we are connecting the tip 120 to trigger the air soft guns from a single digital pin. Also we are picking up a couple gamepads to make it easier to control. I found a great deal for a pair at best buy. Once the guns are connected we should be ready to test and configure controls today.

Is that price for the pair of controllers, or for just one?
#84  
That's for a pair , or 24.99 each. They are 2.4 GHz wireless too.
#85  
Sweet! I may have to get them. Dude, I am moving and unpacking this weekend. Hopefully I can find that laptop and get it sent to you soon.
#86  
Yes that.would be great , on my budget I need it lol , like robot building on a fixed income.
