Morinaga, who is sometimes referred to as the "God" of ROBO-ONE, recently completely redesigned and rebuilt Metallic Fighter from the ground up. Because of work schedules and other commitments, he wasn't able to complete the redesign in time for ROBO-ONE 9 last March, but now, six months later, the new Metallic Fighter was ready to do battle in the ring.
Morinaga used the top of the line 4000 series servos from Kondo, not only for the torque, but also for the expanded rotational range. It gives his robot much more flexibility, as you will see in some of the videos from the event. The robots controller is the Kondo RCB-3.
