Linear Actuators + A few bits and bobs.

Post by Zog » Fri Feb 12, 2010 10:42 pm

Basically, first post, but quite expierenced already. Basically, does anyone have any linear actuators, speed controllers, batteries, hinges and/or failsafes up for grabs? Or know anyone who has them for sale? Used for a heavyweight I'm making.

this forum is mainly for ants but the best person to ask would probebly be dave weston

EDIT: youl be suprised how much "experiance" it takes to build/operate/maintain one of these things, i know that the biggest thing youv got is a battlerat and you'r complaining about the weapon motor...lol :P you should see what breaks on a heavy...iv only had my new heavy at 2 events and the costs of maintining it reached about ?300...so be warned :P
