Re: General questions for first robot

Hijacking this for a quickie; what do you guys use to attach that thin plastic to your flippers and what type of plastic is that?
I've tried to epoxy plastic to alu / Ti without much of a success, what type of glue would be more apropriate?

Re: General questions for first robot

I can recommend http://www.botbitz.com/ for speed controllers aswell, Im running 2 of em in one of my bots and got 2 more for my next build and they work very well so far. The shipping time isn't too bad considering its sent from australia and the fee isn't that high either.
