Great work Simon, particularly the How To's. Good to direct people there in the future. The pricing list for Kitty is very helpful too.

I miss Elektra :(

Looks great! Just one small thing, there is a typing error on the Competitions page, first bullet point says "Grand Antweigh Competition" :wink:

Thanks guys. I've corrected the typo and made it clear which robots have retired.
As for RRC, I suppose I need to keep the data alive for historical purposes (the old site is still active as well - http://windisch.co.uk/robots/rrc/index.htm) so I'll look to transporting all that data through to wordpress.

Good progress Simon. It's really coming together. Where did you get the Scorpian Minis from?

Ah, yeah, the American site. I was hoping someone in the UK had started stocking them.

Just drifting through the site again i have to say its really cool. One thing i did notice though is that there is a typo on the SITKWD page
repairing a featherweight is a lot more expensive and time consuming than for a feather
is that supposed to say Antweight? also im sorry the feather is retired, it was really very nifty 8)

Thanks Jack, sorted... Maybe one day those £300 gearboxes will see the light of day.
