Re: servo gears

Files here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3200932 Crabulon was so cool to watch - I regret not coming to take a proper look, will make a point of it at the next event! Did your gear train loose teeth during the battle? What did you print it out of? I use Fusion360 for CAD - it's been a steep lea...

Re: servo gears

What measures did you take to get the gear running concentric? I wasn’t that scientific – printed the cog to the same height as the horn, stuck some superglue inside and pushed the horn in, then used a flat bit of scrap to push it down to keep it level. Because it’s so small any variance is unnotic...

Re: servo gears

The servo pincer was me - there's a cut down servo horn glued inside the cog to make it stay put! I started modelling the grippy teeth for inside but quickly got bored counting teeth and decided to take the easier route. It's not pretty but it works :). I've been having issues with the (ABS) teeth o...

Re: AWS55 - 30th June 2018 - Dunchurch Village Hall

Came home with so much inspiration for my next ants, so thanks everyone for sharing and being so willing to show me inside their robots. Mostly need to practice my driving now befor...

Re: Newbie - DasMikro Burnout

This also just happened to me 2 days ago - scared the life out of me! I was pretty sure I hadn't shorted anything, so emailed Banggood a picture of the blackened chip and they're sending me a new one, no issues :). Just soldered up my second one but haven't tested it yet, keeping my fingers crossed...

Re: Ant Freeze 5 - 3rd Feb 2018 NEW DATE

Hi, I'm on my way up but in standing traffic on the M40 - will I still be able to compete if I'm late? Current eta is 10:45. Hi, I'm in the exact same situation too unfortunately, it seems to be a big crash, so I have the same question as to whether I can still compete or not? Matt We can just batt...

Re: Questions about antweights - servos, switch placement, armour

Thanks Lincoln, for the welcome and for the advice - I'm excited to be getting started! I might build it all up using a microservo for now, but leave a little extra room around it, then I can pick the best servo with whatever remaining weight limit I have at the end. Hobbyking are selling a slightly...

Questions about antweights - servos, switch placement, armour

Hi everyone, I’ve been lurking on this forum for a few months now whilst building my first antweight – your posts have been amazingly helpful, thank you! I’ve finally got the electronics all working (I definitely didn’t take the most efficient route…) but could do with a little advice on the mechani...
