Daisy Chopper's statistics board

Daisy Chopper was a large, two-wheeled robot armed with a top speed of 20mph and a large 20kg vertical flywheel as its weapon. The flywheel, which was incorrectly referred to as a "circular saw" or "hammer" on the show, was driven by a motor from a hatchback car and spun at up to 600rpm.



Daisy Chopper 2, the version made after Series 4

Daisy Chopper qualified for Series 3 after running the obstacle course, as per all competitors. The team attempted to enter a virtually unchanged Daisy Chopper into the Fourth Wars. However, it failed to qualify, and was subsequently updated and renamed Tiny.

Robot HistoryEdit

Series 3Edit


Griffon lifts Daisy Chopper and rolls it over.

In the first round, Daisy Chopper fought against Series 1 and 2 competitors Griffon. Its spinning disc had no effect on Griffon's polycarbonate armour, as Griffon turned Daisy Chopper over several times with its lifting arm. Griffon eased Daisy Chopper into Dead Metal's CPZ, only for Daisy Chopper to steer Griffon into it and suffer grazes from Dead Metal's saw before cease was called. The battle went to a judges' decision, with the judges unanimously voting for Griffon to go through to the second round.

However, Team TFOSICA protested against the decision on the grounds that Griffon had showed poor control by driving into the CPZ, compelling the judges to enact a recount. After recalculating all of the battle criteria, the judges came to a split decision which went in favour of Griffon again, eliminating Daisy Chopper from the competition.
