Re: single channel brushed ESC?

Re: It's been so very long

Having built my own, using hacked servoboards v-tail mixer and FM radios, and then bought Rory's kit (last link on his post above), I would say just get that. £30 for the receiver and ESC built in. Obs. you will need transmitter, battery, motors and mechanics, but his kit (I think he undersells it a...

Re: AWS 48, Basingstoke, 21st November 2015

Um, I've looked the location on google maps, and it appears to be in the middle of some houses. Could someone double check the location. For the sake of GPS etc!

Thanks!

Re: Event Signup revision

Hi, I've just signed up for AWS46, and just wanted to point out a minor discrepancy. The first robot, you can enter as 27Mhz AM, and all subsequent robot entries 27Mhz FM. Just a minor change, but it did make me think for a moment!

Re: Brighton Modelworld 2015 - 20-22 Feb 2015

Hi! First time poster here. I first saw the AntWeights last year at BMW, and then found this forum. I have been gathering components to make a bot (with hopes to enter AWS 46), but am lacking in some gearmotors like these: http://www.technobotsonline.com/pololu-10-1-micro-metal-gearmotor.html Would ...
