Name: Nyx
Weight: 30lbs
Weapon: Modular weapons: Dual hinged flipper, grinding disks and a ramming spike
Record: 2-2
Status: Active

Designed and built in early 2012, Nyx is an electric battering ram with a hardened steel ramming spike capable of speeds approaching 16mph in under 12ft. The main body is waterjet cut aluminum and titanium with cordless drill motors running the drive and weapon system. I used a Ryobi metal cutting saw, cordless angle grinder and drill press to cut and drill all of the non-waterjet cut pieces on Nyx.
