Re: Ant Freeze 2.5 - 26th September 2015 Nuneaton

I really want to come to this as a first event, the issue is my wife is working and I would have to bring both kids. Not sure the 2yr old would behave long enough for me and my son to enjoy it. Maybe next time.

Re: SAW-US, A Build Diary

I have ordered 2 off for around £10.00. That should get things up and running.

I now just need to find someone in the area to compete against otherwise it will be back in the cupboard again in a few weeks...

Re: SAW-US, A Build Diary

Thanks I was just considering that. Can you please recommend something? Maybe a turnigy 180mAh 2 cell! I am happy to pay another £5-10.

Do I need to ensure it is charged before I store it? It may be something we only use occasionally and I don't want to replace the battery again in 2 months.

Good day to you all. I have just returned from a great day at the Colchester Robot Wars World Championship. My son is now totally enthralled (again) by all things robot wars and I have decided that this may be a good time to get our Antweight back together. Only problem is I have an issue with the b...

Re: Tamiya Rising Fighter or .......

I emailed the store and they confirmed I would need a different ESC. I may now consider a Ready to Run car like the below.
