It reached the second round in its only appearance, losing to The Grim Reaper on a Judges' decision. The Stag turned around, and drove around Gyrobot as Gyrobot drove at it, then drove up the arena to attack Scrap Dragon.

Thanks to the robot’s main component, a motorized gyroscope, this special apple can walk along a tightrope without falling. This modification brought Gyrobot very close to the weight limit; indeed, its weight was officially quoted as '100kg' in its only appearance.Gyrobot hit the front lifter of Scrap Dragon, which reversed, rammed into the side of The Stag, which was gripping onto Shell Shock. After the Seventh Wars, Gyrobot was upgraded to spin and accelerate faster, also gaining studded wheels and an improved battery life, with the intention of entering another series of Robot Wars. Following this, Gyrobot underwent multiple upgrades to become the 'Mk II' incarnation that successfully applied for the following series. Gyrobot then drove to the bottom of the arena, bumping into the silver robot, which was spinning on the spot.

Thanks to the robot’s main component, a gyroscope, it can maintain its balance and perform this fun trick without. Through eight experiments, you can explore the astonishing powers of the motorised gyroscope and understand the physics behind its amazing behaviours. When the battle started, Gyrobot immediately backed away from The Grim Reaper as the latter charged in to flip it, momentarily causing it to spin on its rim, before struggling to drive away from an angle grinder.

which would have made it the heaviest spinning weapon in Robot Wars, and the robot's teeth were upgraded to use Inconel hard edge welding.

The 43-piece kit includes the parts to build your gyrobot and different experimental setups, including a frame for the tightrope.For its attempted entry into Series 9, Steve Wood recruited three new members of Team Gyrobot in 2016, including 3D print designer Damian Axford, although these team members would ultimately not get the chance to compete on Robot Wars. Although Gyrobot was upgraded again in 2016 with the intention of entering Series 9, it has still yet to reappear in combat.

I spent a lot of money and time upgrading Gyrobot in an attempt to make an old robot competitive in the new wars (Lipo, upgrade, new style weapon teeth, new speed controllers etc) only to be told that Robot Wars was "looking for innovation and the use of new tech". Advanced Fraud Detection: MasterCard uses sophisticated fraud detection systems to identify and prevent fraudulent transactions, helping keep your card details safe. Fluffy drove towards it, this time being more cautious - instead of crashing into Gyrobot's spining body, Fluffy slowed as it approached, driving around Gyrobot, then hit it with the spinning bar. Gyrobot drove away, staying away from its opponents by the bottom of the arena to get its spinner up to speed, spinning on the spot to do even more damage.With a few simple spins, these Gyrobot Battle Spinners will have you zooming around the room in no time. You can also experiment with the balancing behavior of the motorized gyroscope by itself, testing its ability to balance on its edge, on your finger, on a pole, and dangling from a string. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). The unique and functional design makes this an affordable, fun, and educational gift with high play value. By constructing the robot and performing the experiments with the motorised gyroscope unit, young engineers can learn about the science of gyroscopic devices and the indispensable role they play in our lives.
