Mustachio is a long development project with the goal of building a 120lb horizontal spinner bot. The goal is to use the massive kinetic energy seen by the spinning steel blade to wreak havoc on an opponent. Mustachio uses 4 dewalt 24V motos for its drive system and 2 large brushless 9 HP motors for the weapon system. Development for Mustachio has stalled due to a lack of local competitions in the 120lb weight class, however, the bot is close to completion and may be revived next year as a demo bot for the club.
