Re: Arena Hazards

I like the idea and have thought some way for pushers to 'flip' a bot would be cool and add some interest to pusher v pusher fights.

On hazards in general I actually enjoy them, stuff like bristols corner flipper is great fun (Though for an AWS you'd want to figure some kind of automatic trigger).

Re: Weapon motor issue

Just a quick one, will it arm if you trim the throttle channel all the way down?

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

Dropping from 4 robots (3 rollers and 1 cluster walker) to 3 robots (2 rollers and 1 cluter/walker), would help more aswell as helping to keep the more exotic bots entered into the competition. Aswell as encouraging people to build down those routes for future events.

Re: Lipo 180mah 2S Compatible LOSB0863

I'm not sure what's happening there, any charger should be able to work with just the balance connector plugged in. Theoretically yes, however having the main leads plugged in is a requirement on a lot of the chargers aimed at higher power batteries. Simply as you can't push much current through ba...

Felt it was time for something a little on the weirder side for a robot: https://i.imgur.com/73zdrxj.jpg A chainsaw wielding ant! Using a bosch nanoblade connected to an 1806 motor, at the moment just static in the chassis. This version is very much a simply get something working one rather than wha...

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

That alright! The simple answer is that I kind of don't... The mounting hole is the very last thing I put in. I use Emachineshop for this as it has some good features that help. For bars it's fairly easy: I design the outside profile with the counterweight, no need to worry about the mount here just...

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

Waterjet cutting for them all so far, though I am in the process of finishing building a router that can let me route them myself.

One thing to note is that it's pretty important to get genuine Grade 5 ti if you're going down this route. Grade 2 is just too soft.

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

My spinners actually tend to the lighter side it seems, Test is only a 16g blade but I run very aggressive tooth profiles on the spinners. Downside of this is that you generally use a disc every event or two.

Re: 3D printing

On the subject of ABS being a pain, it sure can be. However I absolutely recommend a PEI sheet print bed, made a huge difference to my printing. With the bed at 110C I get great bed adhesion which cuts down warping a ton. Combined with tabs onto the corners of things you're printing and avoiding des...

Re: Graphene Batteries

It's probably a battery from the Turnigy Graphene range (Available from Hobbyking) which are still just LiPo so you can use them.
