I have got Complexity running although it needs a weapon esc as that is shot... It's shorting in one of the 6 motor driver chips, not sure why and not sure how it is so localised but that has been stripped out. Dave W has kindly offered me a spare 6a brushless controller but I'm not sure how long that will last as the 10a one in there gets quite warm, has anybody got a spare 10/12amp brushless esc by any chance?

I have an unused 10A one I can stick in my case. I have already lent one to Dave W so I will have twice as many chances of being destroyed by my own gear. :roll:

That'd be excellent peter, cheers.

Not likely, maybe in a giro dance off...

Well done to oliver for winning the aws and well done to everyone else that got awards :)

thanks to will for organising the biggest aws yet... A total of 82 robots entered the main competition :o

The next aws will be hosted by us in brighton some time in july, will start a thread for this when we get home :)
