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

I'd suggest a combination of Kyro and Andrew's suggestions; see how many actually turn up on the day first, then if necessary ask teams with 4 robots to drop down to 3. If there's still too many I'd suggest that those teams with 3 robots nominate one to enter into pre-qualifying to claim the last sp...

Re: Ellis's (Team BANANAPHONE/A12) build log!

Ah mocks, the bane of my teenage years. Good luck with them! Am I right in thinking v2's chassis is bigger? Is it much heavier? Not sure I'd want MicroNewton fighting it anytime soon! Maybe one of my newer flippers which have much thicker fronts... Also, kudos to you for making a spinner as your fir...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

This looks great, I love your designs! I'll be very interested to see how the mechanum wheels work. Is the front plough stationary or will it rotate like Shockwave's?

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

Wow, 143 now?!?! Was thinking of entering a third but definitely not now!

Is there an absolute hard limit on how many robots that can be fitted in?

Re: MichaelG92's Build Diaries

Only just had time to type this up after Sheffield, but Saturday was my first AWS and I thought I did quite well! After burning out ArmamAnt!'s ESC whilst putting it together I only entered MicroNewton, who did surprisingly well in her first event! After two quick wins against Percussive Maintenance...

Battery charger for 120mah Lipo

Hi all, I bought a commission bot from Team Panoramic, and to save weight Harry used the below battery. http://www.optipowerbattery.com/products/optipower-lipo-cell-battery-120mah-2s1p-15-30c/ I only discovered after trying to charge it that it doesn't have a balanced charging cable on it, it only h...

Re: MichaelG92's Build Diaries

Sorry for the slow response, work is hectic right now... Ok, thanks all! Taping down motors and spare wires whilst testing sounds like a very good idea, I'll start doing that from now on. I don't have time to work on ArmamAnt! before Sheffield so it definitely won't be competing, but I'll bring it u...

Re: MichaelG92's Build Diaries

Sorry for the late replies, I've been at friend's wedding and away from my computer! id say the esc is kaput... you can always try it and see if it has any life... maybe the second channel still works and you can use it to power some sort of brushed weapon... im impressed though, i have used many of...
