Re: Basic Flipper Hinge Question

They're each about 6 grams. I only used one, as they are relatively big (about 3cm long).

Re: Basic Flipper Hinge Question

For my first antweight I used a ready made plastic hinge: https://www.homecrafts.co.uk/mini-hinge-pack-of-10?gclid=CjwKCAjw67XpBRBqEiwA5RCocezAlQa5iv1mo19mMftZrmJpKAl_tVJunv_QQBdyLV3au55P7duc_BoCUQAQAvD_BwE Definitely not a perfect solution, but it works as a lower tech answer - and it looks good co...

Re: Coping with the demand (An EO's perspective)

I personally would prefer the possibility of 4 entries, with shorter fights to allow more time, rather than 3 entries. I do understand if it gets dropped to 3 entries on the day to reduce numbers for antlog though. I agree with kyro about being more restricted about delays due to robots not being re...

Re: Coping with the demand (An EO's perspective)

Coming from a newbie, with what I saw yesterday: In my opinion, a second arena would help speed things up, but with some drawbacks. Venues would probably have to be larger to accommodate the second arena (pushing costs up) and extra time allowances would probably have to be made for teams who have m...

Armour /chassis material

Hello, I have a few questions about making the main body of my robot now I've done the electronics: I've heard about some of the strengths and weaknesses of using hdpe and polycarbonate, but if you were making the chassis/Armour combined out of them, what are the best ways to connect them?

Re: Is this right?

OK, that's alright then (it's not my wiring). I fried it with the soldering iron accidentally, so I need a new board either way. I knew one motor wouldn't work, I just wasn't sure if the fact neither motor worked was due to me not wiring it right!

Is this right?

I connected up my DasMikro ESC last night and although the receiver lights up and the servo responds to the transmitter, neither motor moves. Although I have only connected one signal wire (I fried one connection and probably need a new ESC), am I right in that at least one motor should still be mov...

Servo straight to battery

Just wanted to check that I'm right in assuming that if I'm going to wire the Servo straight to the battery, I just have to cut the positive and negative wires that would normally go to the receiver and connect them straight to the battery.

Re: Increasing numbers

How about you can enter 4 robots:
1 - roller
2 - roller
3 - walker/cluster
4 - roller (reserve)
