Re: Cutting Polycarbonate sheet on budget CNC router

I mostly use 1.5mm PC, the way I cut it is to draw the outline of the shape I want, then score along the line with a Stanley knife and a metal ruler, aup to around halfway through, then bend and snap on a table corner. For internal slots (for wheels etc.) I use a small pin vice to drill out the corn...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

So, AWS60. I think this event was the one I had the most fun at, despite not winning any fights. HYTTIOAOA's first fight was against the infamous RBMK. I was actually looking forward to this fight, and feeling fairly confident. If my drive was working properly, I think I had a chance at corralling i...

I use one of these https://hobbyking.com/en_us/battery-monitor-2-6s.html

Re: T_Y's Build Log

Can confirm the power hungry nature of the servos - I managed to over-discharge a battery while testing. Very powerful though.

Re: T_Y's Build Log

It seems like there are some wiring issues with Error 404. Because I don't have a huge amount of free time between now and AWS, I've made the decision to replace it with HYTTIOAOA for AWS 60 (I'll still bring it along though). So, here is the competing team, PM2 and HYTTIOAOA V3. https://i.imgur.com...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

Had an interesting week. I found out that my soldering iron had died, so I had to rush buy one off amazon XD. Another thing I found out is that the titanium I have doesn't seem to like sharp 90 degree bends (or at least, the way I was bending it), and was shearing along the fold. So I'm going to sti...
