R/C Tank Combat
The Aftermathby Chris Malton
Battles can get messy, and this one was no exception. The fact that many
hundreds of shots were fired is enough to say that. The number that hit however
were rather less. A cleanup operation can take a while. Thankfully, it would
appear there has been no issue regarding students and the amount of unburst
paint, bar a few issues that were dealt with on Tuesday lunchtime.
Back in the shed however, there is work to be done. The Challenger performed well on its first outing, and seems to prove reasonably reliable, albeit there is a lot of scope for improvement. This will include a door lock actuator trigger mechanism, and a slightly less bodged rotate. Also, elevate will receive some TLC to resolve the problems I was having.
In the other department, T027, there is even more work to be done. With limited funds available, there is a lot of fitting out to be done. Time, and more crucially, money, will see how far this process gets this winter. The plan is to have it fully operational before the next big battle.
