Re: Antweight World Series 53 - University of Southampton

I've got a friend at Southampton uni who's interested in coming and watching for a bit.. What's happening with numbers? Is it strictly X number of people allowed in the room or what?

Re: Receivers

I got mine to bind ok on both DSM2 and DSMX with a Devo 7E. Just finished putting another DSMX Pico controller using one of the Orange RX. They work fine but the binding isn't particularly user friendly as you have to poke a wire through a hole in the heatshrink, so I'm not sure they'll see producti...

Re: Receivers

Huh.. Looks like I'm gonna have to start mass producing my Orange RX based Pico boards after all!

Re: Receivers

I made a pico dual ESC earlier in the year that fits onto one of those orange RX. Worked great, just never got round to making more than one of them. Was aiming to have it as a DSMX replacement for the NanoTwo, but couldn't work out a user friendly and easily manufactured way to initiate the bind. I...

Re: AWS 52 - Greenwich University - Sign up + details

First AWS I'm gonna miss sadly; It's 8 hours there and back, and for a one day event where I haven't got any new bots to test out it's just a bit far.

Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

Looks good! What's the fine pitch chip between the processor and the driver chips doing?

Re: PCB Manufacture

Ooh, interesting!

I've been using this place recently, which is cheap and has an ~8 day turn around, but shipping is about £20 which is a pain. http://www.smart-prototyping.com/PCB-Prototyping.html

Re: TinyTwo Speed Controllers

Progress is being made with the PicoTwos. Below is how I'm probably gonna be shipping them for use in ants, and the thinner wires would be for use in Nanos. They're a little harder and more expensive to build than the NanoTwos, and I don't want to make the NanoTwos redundant just yet so looking at s...

Re: Team Coolspeedbot's robot builds

An unsupported 2mm plate will be fine, though these days I tend to fold the outer edges to ~45 degrees and have the folded edges sit outside the chassis in an effort to deflect spinners. Be aware though that the heavier the flipper arm, the more difficult it will be to selfright, so adding more mass...

Re: "Sioc" Build Diary

That's looking very neat! A cabletie works well for holding motors in.

As for the glitching drive, seems to be a problem with the new V2 controllers and those servos. Easily fixed with a 6.3v 220uF capacitor across the 5v line

Re: Team Coolspeedbot's robot builds

Hmm, it's not a problem I've ever come across. If it's still not working, send it back to me along with the DSMX RX and I'll see what the problem is.
