Airsoft gun

Note: I did not make this robot - I found this video while browsing YouTube a while back.


I made this robot, it shoots an airsoft gun and tilts up and down to aim.

hmm…thats an interesting way to do a tilt mechanism. Does it work well (as apposed to having the gun on a platform that tilts)? How does it drive?

it works very well, the drivetrain is just two small wheels in the back and two small wheels in the front with no tread that aren’t powered. so it drives the same when its tilted as when its on the ground.

how do i make a robot with a airsoft gun?.plz help me:)


My gunbot doesn’t use airsoft, but the idea is the same.

basically you need:
-a drive train (probally an all terain one)
-an airsoft gun mounted on the base
-something like a servo with a lever to pull the trigger
and to be more advanced you can add pan and tilt to the robot.

that pic from the old vex forum makes the robot look sooo shiny. that also looks like a really nice bot. :slight_smile:

maybe you could use a spycam on a airsoft robot to be presise?

my airsoft gun bot is awesome, aims up and down and everything, amazing in airsoft wars too, just a little too loud
