Re: Noob build questions

To give my two pence worth: I second James here; BBB's recommended parts list is very useful, and the guys over there are really helpful if you have any questions on anything. They've even started stocking N20s, most people use 6V 30:1 motors, 50:1 motors are useful if you want more control. I know ...

Re: University of Greenwich - Medway, 28/29 March

I'd certainly be interested in attending an antweight competition, Medway isn't stupidly far away from where I live. Certainly won't have time to get a beetleweight built in time.

Re: MichaelG92's Build Diaries

The aftermath of a brutal AWS 60 for me: MicroNewton lost both fights to Poptart and Virus, and Kwejibo. The second fight was particularly disappointing; I so nearly had it and flipped it a few times but I ultimately died after one too many hits, but remarkably the electronics are working fine now. ...

Re: AWS 60 - Headington, Oxford - 30th Nov 2019

Thank you so much to Dave, Sarah and everyone else who was involved in organising AWS 60. Despite returning home with two smashed bots and no wins I still had a blast. Can't wait for the next one!

Re: MichaelG92's Build Diaries

Added the finally touches to ArmamAnt! this morning, it's stickers and newly printed top panel. As the name suggests, it's a tribute to the legend that is JP and I love how it looks with the stickers now! https://795nza.bn.files.1drv.com/y4myycXKQjtr8FPsnz2gE_AqYNvxNOk35ert5aL-3tFTSBLDD6YVpB0wFYgwe3...

Re: AWS 60 - Headington, Oxford - 30th Nov 2019

I'll get there as early as I can, thankfully only live about an hour away.

Really looking forward to it! Thanks to all involved in organising.

Re: Ellis's (Team BANANAPHONE/A12) build log!

Looks good! I'm hoping someone else can back me up on this, but someone told me recently that there's a 2% tolerance for the scales? So you may not have to save weight. At least that's what I'm hoping, otherwise I'll be hacking bits of MicroNewton on the day. Definitely double check with someone fir...

Re: MichaelG92's Build Diaries

After two months in development hell, due to issues such as a burnt out speed controller, waiting for the correct type of screws to arrive and actually having time to work on it, I'm delighted to say that ArmamAnt! has finally been assembled and is up and running. https://6n4s4w.bn.files.1drv.com/y4...

Re: MichaelG92's Build Diaries

MicroNewton got a quick run out at Bristol Bot Builders' event last Sunday, taking part in the 2v2s with Dave Weston's Stewie. And we did very well, finishing third. Sadly I suffered the same electrical fault in the two fights we lost that lead to MicroNewton stopping dead in its tracks both times. ...

So glad I asked, the ESC I'd been looking at was 30A and weighed 24g...! Cheers!
