Practical Robot

T7 HUMMINGBIRD (Dismantled)

Tesla Copter added 1 year ago

So I thought I would adapt the Lionfish design to become a medic copter.

I shed the smaller rotors in favour of 4 large ones, 2 top and 2 bottom.

After taking much of the great advice I significantly bulked the armour up front and along the weapon arms which has worked a treat. As well as moving the pilot seat much further back/

It's much heavier than it's attack chopper counterpart but makes up for the lack of speed with just being able to soak up the hits.

Still getting used to the medic role but this little beauty seems to he quite hardy in a fire fight.

Next phase is to bring this up to T10 like the Lionfish and possibly add extra rotors/EP.

I feel like I could cripple you with one shot to the back, because of those aerorods (Not sure what tier it is, but will still get one-shot by plasma)
Other than that, I don't see the reason you had to bulk the front up so heavily, although I don't think plasma is going to do more than a dent to it.

Thanks for your feedback :)

The back end is vulnerable to rails primarily. I find the Plasma shots take out the top rotor but that's why I put a backup underneath. The two are not connected to taking out one will not take out the other.

The front needed the armour because I will usually draw a lot of head on SMG fire when healing bots on the front line.

It's T7 at the moment and I am grinding it up to T10 like my other copter.

Good point on the SMG fire, but one question.

Can this bulky heli still FLY if the top 2 rotors/back 2 rotors are knocked out? Note: My definition of FLYING is having stable flight across the map at relatively decent speeds.

If I lose both back rotos it's head back to base/medic time.

If I loose both front ones (tends not to happen as I normally get shot from above or below thus protecting at least 1)...it's time to respawn.

If I loose one from the back and one from the front, yes, it functions perfectly but with a slower ascend/descend speed...and being more vulnerable.

I am thinking of adding some hovers in T8 as I will have the CPU space. Thoughts?

Thanks for the quick reply.

I am against you getting hoverblades and instead you should invest those pFlops into getting decent EPs. The reason for this being that rotor blades are a general upgrade over hoverblades, being able to do everything that a hoverblade does and more. On the other hand, hoverblades create some kind of suction between you and the ground, making flight from the ground up very hard unless you have upward thrusters.

Make reinforcing your back tail your priority for now.

Good call. I was thinking they may come in handy if I get grounded.

I plan on waiting until the update anyway and see what I can create then.

Those Front 2 nanos, mounted on a single block and connected to the body via a rod *shudders*

also, i do not think 3 rotors for a medic is viable

4 rotors :) wanted 6 but it bumps me up to T8 so that's the next step. I want to get this up the level of the other copter.

Ah... yea, good point. Will add a second support so they are independent. Good spot... I got lazy.
