Re: Tashic's ants

So it's been a while. Sorry for not posting anything but I have a bad habit of not posting stuff until I've finished the robots, but I do realize that if I post things as I build along that would be more interesting and informative. Anyways I decided to update my Vortice robot to version 4: IMG_4386...

Re: Tashic's ants

Re: Tashic's ants

I said I would come back to F3, and so I did! Meet F3.1: IMG_4187.JPG IMG_4188.JPG IMG_4189.JPG This time I decided to use the servo that Rory told me about, and it's pretty powerfull! I's also very small, so I was able to have a much neater layout of all the components, keep the baseplate from beco...

Re: Bandit's Bot-Building Blog

Very cool, reminds me of a robot I made years ago.

Re: Cheap components for an antweight class

I'm also interested in some cheap components! Today I met a person which is a teacher and wants to make an antweight tournament (a sportsman/no damage type), ironically while I was in the fablab of my city. Has anyone used those ESCs that Peter linked? Also remember that I'm situated in Italy and so...

Re: Another New Antweight..

If axes aren't very effective with other bots, why not have a robot with a flipper that also incorporates an axe head, so on one end it's a flipper (or other servo powered weapons), and on the other end it's an axe for EDFs. Or have interchangable weapons.
