Big Bloom

After a few years of making little robots, Kevin and I are finally getting into the big bots. We’ve started work on a 30#er we’re calling “Big Bloom”…the name comes from the original 1# robot I made with a similar design name “Ground Bloom.” Yesterday I got the gears for the bot: A 5:1 stainless steel set of spur gears. With this gear ratio, the bot should be pretty scary 😀
