Due to unfortunate mechanical failures on my mowbot robot I was able to piece together a prototype for my long running edgebot project. Here is a video. Yes, wheelies are awesome.

UPDATE: It cuts!

The mowbot suffers mechanical failures from time to time that require interesting fixes. This time around the mowing deck has broken around the motor mount.
Additionally, the plate holding the carburetor to the engine has split into two pieces. This is preventing the engine from getting the proper air/fuel mixture and causing it to run erratically. I haven't been able to find a replacement mounting plate for this carb yet. I am also considering looking for a clamp-on style carb instead of this tricky plate shenanigan.
