Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

One of the biggest problems I find as I get older is starting more and more projects without necessarily finishing any. Someone on here mentioned the RZ7899 motor driver that looks really good. It is similar in spec to the DRV8872 I use in my latest design but doesn't have the pad under the IC that ...

Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

To be honest I am not sure my physics is a bit dodgy in this area.
I thought it was about as quick but that may be due to the springs being stronger than the bands I was using.

Re: Pneumatic antweight.

I think that about covers it but there are various switches and rams. The switches can be electrically operated or mechanically. The former need some sort of switched output from the controller and the mechanical ones need a small servo to operate them. You need to make sure that in the off position...

Re: The smart ant's and flea's

Re: Pre modded servo boards for escs?

You don't need to apologize it is all good information you have been posting.
