So I was watching Star Trek, and this image of the Enterprise made in Robocraft using just a hover for the main saucer part of the ship popped into my mind. After the show, I decided to make this little tiny Enterprise, and I liked it.
I thought, "Maybe I can do a Bird of Prey.." So I made one, and I liked it. Well, I started making more and decided to link them with aero rods. Then I thought "It would be awesome to fight with these!", so I went with some rotors so that they could fly because, duh, spaceships. I equipped them with plasma for terrestrial bombardment. That first test, watching each ship individually shooting plasma was so cool.
Well, I took them into a few battles, and did well enough for what is really a rather weak art bot. One thing that really bothered me (besides flak) was I was having trouble with other flyers too. So I decided to put some lasers on the top for space (I know "air") battles!
To finish things up and make this art bot as battle ready as possible, I connected each rotor at 2 points for redundancy, and put a few hovers so I can move my chunk of blocks around when the rotors inevitably get shot off.
It's not real strong, but still fun to make, and fun to play with.
