I love to give high ratings. There so many creative and functional designs that deserve due credit, and usually when I find robot to be below expectations, I choose not to vote. But since I already commented and pointed to insufficient number of photos, I feel compelled to rate it. Therefore I'm sorry that I can't give it any higher mark. Because overall rating is so low I'd like to give some reasoning so it wouldn't look arbitrary: 1) Legs placement is detrimental for walking speed. 2) Rotors are very poorly mounted both in terms of their placement and the construction of mounts: Robot have big cross-section, these rotors provide excellent target which to a certain extent is unavoidable for all copters but mounts are poorly designed, - no triforcing, no redundancy, these are very easy to destroy. 3) shielding make no tactical sense: for sniper builds underbelly is only exposed when under direct fire, if this is the case jumping is anyway suicidal. 4) Basic hull layout is not bad in itself, but this structure require serious rework 5) headlamp.... yeah go stealthy. This is one of the longest posts I have ever wrote but I feel that I should give detailed explanation for low rating. I hope that this will not dissuade you from publishing further bots - there is plenty of inspiration here. I'm counting that your next upload will get straight 10/10

Pls add some more photos & additional description. Maybe I'm wrong but it looks like typical camper railbot - pile of bricks, with some guns attached, blasting players from home base area. Proliferation of this playstyle turned out to be crippling for gameplay after rail buff - now, thanks almighty it has been reversed to a certain degree.

I will abstain from rating it for now. Railbots could be creative and effective, so far these pictures are insufficient to judge any design points of this construction.

Why? This is very strong, it can still walk and fly even with only half of the bot left.
