Rookie Report

by Tom Lum

After surviving my first battle, I am re-doing a few things that I knew were iffy going into the battle:

  1. The turret rotate receiver never worked.

  2. The main sidewinder esc thermally shut down due to being enclosed in foam rubber on a 100 degree day while trying to push around all the weight.

  3. The paint ball feed was horrible and ended up with me just having a tube sticking out of the turret, as seen in the video.

The battlefield proved that if you know something is questionable, it will always fail when you need it to work. I also learned it is better to have 10 reliable shots than 40 unreliable shots ... and that Steve Tyng is a turncoat!
