Re: Best NanoTwo alternative?

I found a couple of alternatives from china. I have ordered one and will test and update you all. It says it can handle 1-3s and 5A. Seems like a nice package and it's not overly big. https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32919711364.html?spm=a2g0n.wishlist-amp.item.32919711364 https://m.aliexpress.com/item...

Re: "Flip-it” new build/project

Finaly I’ve completed a DIY only robot using arduino and other modules. This is nothing new and been done many times before however I wanted a cheap alternative to buying all these expensive ESC and Tx/RX packages. Allowing this hobby to be more accessible to even more people. Students at my school ...

Really nice drive set up. You should sell a few 😜.

I’m still looking forward to this book you are writing.

Re: dr3 First Build

Looks good. I like the rugged effect of shaping polycarbonate. It really isn’t that easy.

You could add a trim/skirt around the bottom instead of lifting the height of the motors.

With practice you will mostly be able to keep the front of the robot pointing at the target and it won’t be needed.

Re: PCB problems

Never mind I’ve figured out my problem. My arduino seems to have a faulty voltage regulator. It wasn’t regulating the 7.2 input down so the logic levels were way to high....now the arduino has a steady 5v it works fine, I think... fixed for now any way haha.


Thanks Peter for the reply

PCB problems

Hello, I've been using a development board to make a ESC circuit. When I connect the PWM inputs from the Reciever the motors become uncontrolable and spinning constantly. When plugging in the arduino to check the PWM it gives readings of 5000-10000mS. Then without the components mounted on the board...

Re: "Flip-it” new build/project

My 3 robots are complete, maybe some cosmetic stickers will be added. All made weight and size. Flip-it, Drax Power and Drax https://preview.ibb.co/h9uWhy/AAF83502_F259_4815_9_F27_50823_E60583_B.jpg I’ve put 1000RPM n20 motors in Drax Power....A little too fast? https://youtu.be/HkAFBMfK59I

Re: T_Y's Build Log

An Arduino controller sounds like an interesting project to do! I'm wondering if it's possible to connect a normal receiver's signal wires to the IO pins on the Arduino instead of using the NRF24LO1, so I can just use the transmitter I've already got instead of custom building one. Yes you can, it'...

Re: Rule Debates

Destructive and non destructive category. I know time constraints but it would be interesting to see which event people would sign up 2. Maybe the same amount of people but even split so the day will go smoothly. Then people who don't want their bots damaged can go to battle knowing they won't face ...
