Robot statistics correct as of its most recent competition


Kite is a Lightweight flipperbot created by KodeBreaker of Team Covenant. He is somewhat similar to The Matador, but sports a kite-like shape, which is partially the reason for his name. Driven by 24v drill motors and 2 wheels near the front (not as much as The Matador, though. S5-Matador could hardly turn about), he is as manoeuvrable as it gets. The powerful flipping arm can flip around a tonne on the tip. The 6063 aluminium alloy exoskeleton and 2mm Grade 5 titanium armour provide some protection against heavy-duty weaponry.

His first version looked similar, but was longer and thinner in shape, thus making it harder to turn, and his flipping arm's plate was ineffective.

The original Kite.

Kite was a participant of the League of Robotic Excellence. While not making the play-offs, he was nearly able to break even. He is now currently participating in Crazy Bots: New Breed City in his newest form, alongside Perseus, Industrial Bastardization, and newcomer Seras.
