Flip flop fly

Flip Flop Fly was a robot created for Series 3 of Robot Wars by the Snook family, who would later go on to build the Tetanus series of machines. The robot was made up of a lot of parts from a French moped, and had the wheels from a Citroen 2CV. It was an axlebot with a multi-coloured barrel shaped body and an axe on a fixed arm that swung overhead when stopped, a lot like Stinger.

Robot History Edit

In its only victory, Flip Flop Fly fought Wild Willy. Wild Willy started much faster and used its axe many times. It attacked Sergeant Bash while Flip Flop Fly wobbled around the arena. Wild Willy then pushed Flip Flop Fly into the arena wall. One of Flip Flop Fly's tyres had been punctured, and it was immobilised. However, Wild Willy then mistakenly drove into the pit. The following judges' decision was very controversial, and saw Flip Flop Fly through to face Evil Weevil in Round 2. Evil Weevil escaped their weapon and drove into Flip Flop Fly repeatedly, before the House Robots ganged up on it. Despite no major damage bar a punctured tyre, Flip Flop Fly was deemed immobile and was eliminated from the competition.
