Will build a new ant for this (my other one's overweight). Will be great fun. Let's just hope I don't get too trashed...

I would like the regulator then please. You know my address. Is it free, or...?

Still, you do semi-owe me one :P

By the looks of it, it seems to be a lot larger than my pack... So therefore, heavier.

Dave, how did you connect a 9V battery to the receiver? Did you remove the wiring or something?

I don't have gearmotors, so i don't need an s/c.

I don't think that they are micro servos, Dave Weston sent them to me (he and one of the dutch roboteers broke my two).

I've got it working now :)

It's a bit slow, but it works. And it has a great flipper.

Weight: 301g.

I know it's overweight, but isn't everyone's first ant?

If it's any help, the transmitter is the Hitec Laser 4. Underneath the mixing switch, it has: "V-Tail" on the left, "Off" in the middle, and "Elevon" on the right. It actually has reverse on 4 of the 5 channels. I have servos in channels 1, 2 and 4. Channels 1 and 2 are the main drive motors, and ch...

Ok, I've used Loctite now to glue it on.

My transmitter has reversing for all channels, and mixing for channels 1/2 and 2/4.

I have widened the holes so then they fit, the only problem is, they don't stay on! How can I secure them on so then they don't come off in battle? Ge...
