|Little Bite of Death
This is a beetle-weight robot utilizing a pneumatic CO2 system
|This is the latest pic of Little Bite of Death
with the anti-multi bot flipping arm on.
|Little Bite of Death is now the beetle-weight two time
champion at the MURC events (ok, self bragging over)
Tamiya planetary gearboxes at 100:1 running at 6 volts.
Changed over to the Rock-the-boat regulator to save
weight and use the 16 gram threaded CO2 cartridge.
Changed the 110mah cells over to 250mah cells for
longer running if needed.
Lastly, the impressive magic marker paint job.
|This is Little Bite of Death Proto. My final
envision was to make it a walker looking like a
tarantula. But am thinking on leaving it alone and
just upgrading the drive speed.
The 12gram CO2 disposable cartridge provides
about 14-16 shots on the flipping arm.
LBOD also has a smaller arm that would provide
more flipping power, but this longer arm works
just fine at tossing the other 3 lb bots around.

From McMaster Carr

6124K123 solenoid valve 12VDC (.31)
This is from Norgren, hoping to get a 6VDC solenoid for this valve
since McMaster lowest voltage was the 12 volt one.
Have since run the air valve manually.

|Here are a couple of pics showing the High pressure On/Off valve
and the pop-off low presser valve that is used as a low pressure purge
|Here are a couple pics of the servo to air valve connection. Decided to scrap the coil due to this
air valve can be operated manually. Used 3/32 square tubing melted into the manual slot and
glued into the servo after opening up the screw area.
