Re: Team Phyte Antweight Builds & Event Reports

OK a bit later than I had originally planned but I've finally gotten around to building my 1st ant in time for ant freeze. It's nothing too special, a basic polycarbonate wedge bot. Introducing You Break It, You Bought It!! https://ibb.co/ydtdsBd

Re: Repairs

Hi Paul

Most people bring spare components to competitions (motors, wheels etc) so changing them is fine. Not sure about an entire new chassis though, you'd probably have to ask the EO on the day. I don't think too many people would have an issue though.

Regards
James

Re: AWS56 - 13th October, Bristol

There was a camera set up so I'm sure there will be footage going up at some point.

Re: Team Phyte Antweight Builds & Event Reports

Well, AWS56 was a lot of fun, even if my performance was hit & miss. Thanks to Dave, Joe & all the BBB guys for putting on a great event. Congrats to Team Oink on a well deserved win, utterly dominating the tournament. I learned a lot here that will help me going forwards. My new flipper bot Please ...

Re: Team Phyte Antweight Builds & Event Reports

OK A bit later than planned but I've finally been able to start on the circuitry for my first ant. It's not going to be ready for AWS56 next week so to my shame I'll resort to using some bots I've picked up on Ebay. Just wanted to check which way I'm supposed to wire the ESC into the receiver. The w...

Re: Best NanoTwo alternative?

Hi there If you don't want a Dasmikro then the guys at ARC robotics have started making & selling their own ESC's for about £30. Unlike the NanoTwo's however they do require a separate receiver as well as some soldering work (they have all the info on their site). I have a couple of these that I'm g...

Re: Team Phyte Antweight Builds & Event Reports

Thanks! That was a fun fight. I think the axe pushing down combined with your own driving momentum was what was knocking you over. Another highlight was Dave Lawrie yelling "Leave him!" whilst you were over (in the heat of battle I forgot I could win if you couldn't self right). Also enjoyed watchin...

Team Phyte Antweight Builds & Event Reports

Hi everybody After attending AWS55 I've decided to get into the antweight scene. I already had a few events under my belt with my featherweight Neophyte, but after Shakey kindly invited me along & lent me one of his spares which I named "Rented for the Roboteer's Pleasure", as well as recruiting me ...
