Re: Forum updates over next few days

The recent work broke the non-standard themes that are available. Only a handful of people use these themes but I have updated them now to compatible versions. You may need to re-save your preferences and possible do a forced reload of (shift-f5 on a PC). If anyone spots any other issues, please do ...

Cheers, PeteC - admin

Welcome back!!

As you can see, the forum is back online following a particularly nasty cyber attack on another site on these servers. Sorry it took a few days - I know people were concerned - but it had to be forensically cleaned. Accordingly the website has been almost entirely removed and I will rebuild it over ...

For sale: servo casings

Folks A by-product of the antweight kits I sell is that I end up with a lot of servo casings. These are basically complete standard servos just missing the control board. Everything else is there - motor, pot, gears, servo arms - just no boards. Current crop are all S3003 servos - not necessarily Fu...

Re: Das Mikro - £12 dual channel speed controller with mixing

Good review....thanks for taking the time. I was interested as the price is about the same as buying two standard servos and robbing the boards (if anyone wants some remains of servos let me know) which one do for the starter kits on here. It would be interesting to compare the options. I would gues...

Hmm - thankfully you were all spared the outfits that we wore for Thunderpants as Mentorn decided not to show us....Nuts were conservative in comparison. :)

Re: Robot Wars TV Series 2016 BBC 2

Did enjoy the first episode although was struck by how very different it is from Battlebots both in presentation and intensity. Well done all those that took part - I know all too well it's not as easy as it appears on telly.

Makes me tempted to by some lipos for Thunderpants :lol:

Re: Engineering as a career

Not sure if I really qualify for this as I trained as an electronics engineer but ended up in software development and am now an Enterprise Architect. I think in this country now the options in engineering (what discipline?) are more limited. Part of the reason I found myself in IT was that my final...

Unfortunately I've got to miss this one as my younger daughter is having surgery. In my place please cheer on the underdog (whomever that may be) :-)

Re: Planned downtime

The forum has been upgraded to the latest version. Apologies for the downtime but a problem elsewhere forced me to reinstall everything. Should find this version works better on mobiles though. :D
