Default Proof that I've had too much coffee...

It's a work in progress.... I have proof that I'm insane.


So... this is an AoBR warboss and deathkopta being converted into a remote control trike. Still tons of details to work out on this one. Just making stuff up as I go.

Okay you had some coffee but you forgot to tell us what insanity you plan on doing with the various bits and pieces that you have collected.

My guess is a remote controled warboss on a bike but I'm just guessing looking at the pictures.

Default RC Orc Warboss on bike





Those red discs at the top of the electronics bits are electromagnets (originally used to turn the front wheels of the toy I scavenged). Still trying to decide if I want to attempt to make this thing steerable... the other option would be to have some kind of "attack arm" that could be moved using those coils. Either way, there's no way that I'll let a pair of electromagnets that I can energize via remote control go to waste.

Is there going to be a driver? Other than you that is.

Blueberry coffee tastes as good as it sounds.

I wasn't planning to have a separate driver. (other than the warboss of course) Is it a good idea to try to cram another body onto this thing? Any ideas for possible moving bits that can be triggered via the electromagnets in the back?

Fixed it for you.

And this is clearly not a reason. You can never have too much coffee.

Guns? You can never have too many guns either.

Yeah, more dakka. I always liked the spring loaded missiles you get on Action Man (or equivalent) and other such boy's toys. Maybe you could electromagnet a spring so that when you release the magnet you fire some sort of grot rokkit?

It might be technical but I think it would be sweet. Look forward to what you have install for us dude.
