Philippa Forrester: "So you're responsible for making this flip flop thing? What's it called?"
Conrad Snook: "Flip Flop Fly"
Philippa Forrester: "Because it can flip, flop and it can fly."
— Brief pit report

Flip Flop Fly was a robot which competed in Series 3 of Robot Wars. Entered by the Snook family, who would later go on to build the Tetanus series of robots, it reached the second round before losing to Evil Weevil.

The insides of Flip Flop Fly

"An Anglo-French project! Building started in France with a moped, was finished in England with truck parts. The weapons; spikes and a rolling axe. He's not shy, Flip Flop Fly!"
Jonathan Pearce introduces Flip Flop Fly

The robot was made up of a lot of parts from a French moped, and had the wheels from a Citroen 2CV. It was an axlebot with a multi-coloured barrel shaped body and an axe on a fixed arm that swung overhead when stopped, a lot like Stinger.

Robot HistoryEdit

Series 3Edit

Flip Flop Fly with its flat tyre

In its only victory, Flip Flop Fly fought Wild Willy. Wild Willy started much faster and used its axe many times. It attacked Sergeant Bash while Flip Flop Fly wobbled around the arena. Wild Willy then pushed Flip Flop Fly into the arena wall. One of Flip Flop Fly's tyres had been punctured, leaving it with very limited mobility. However, Wild Willy then mistakenly drove into the pit. The following judges' decision was very controversial, and saw Flip Flop Fly through to face Evil Weevil in Round 2.

"It's a bit of a strange contraption, we don't really know what to do with it! We're going to push it around a bit and see what happens."
— Kevin Pritchard of Evil Weevil on his opponent

Evil Weevil lifts the fly

In the second round, Evil Weevil escaped Flip Flop Fly's weapon and drove into the Flip Flop Fly repeatedly, before the House Robots ganged up on it. Despite no major damage bar a punctured tyre, Flip Flop Fly was deemed immobile and was eliminated from the competition.
