This article is about the popular form of weapon. For other uses, see Flipper (disambiguation).

Chaos 2, one of the most successful and famous rear-hinged flippers

Flipping Weapons are designed to get underneath other robots and forcefully throw them into the air or onto their backs. Not only can they enable robots equipped with them to flip opponents over, but also toss them at great heights and distances; many flippers are also powerful enough to throw opponents over the wall and out of the arena as a result.

Flipping weapons remain the most popular weapon type in UK robot combat to date, since many of the combat events held there do not allow heavyweight spinners with weapons rotating at over 500rpm to compete due to safety reasons.
