Weapons: Twin 6 lb. 1-1/2" Thick Solid Aluminum Retractable Arms

Design Philosophy: Black Ops was meant from the outset to incorporate the advantages of many different robot designs in one chassis. It can ram, spin, and wedge- even when upside down. (The wedge skirts are not shown in this photo.)
Black Ops is symmetrical in all axes, meaning it is the same robot front-to-back and top-to-bottom. It therefore requires no control adjustments or additional driver input if it is flipped.
