Re: What is a team?

RBMK (the double spinner) uses gyro to move... this is done by accelerating and decelerating each motor in turn which makes it walk. im sure George can explain it much better than me, but if you watch the aws58 video on team panoramics youtube channel you will see it perform well (it ate one of my r...
