Ant Battery

I noticed the usual battery of choice (the hobbyking 180 2S appears to now be gone.

Would you be able to recommend a good replacement that is either a similar or smaller size please?

thanks

Re: Team 1202 build Diary

Took a chance to do a bit more assembly to FT: https://i.postimg.cc/62ZvNHjx/20200126-084441.jpg As you can see its a bit overweight given the battery and ESC are currently missing. I also realize the current wheels are going to throw the tracks off so they need attention. On the plus side I can see...

Re: Team 1202 build Diary

So a question:

Can a blades throttle stick be made to self center easily?

Was thiking of running FT or a blade but ideally with a motor driven lifter dont want the throttle to stay.

If not I will find another method.

Thanks

Re: Team 1202 build Diary

I think with all the bits it probably is about 160g to 165g ATM

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

It's all polycarbonate of normally 1.5mm thick. For cutting I have a small CNC router, so I simply design the plates in CAD with the rest of the bot, program up the machine and it'll cut them out. I like the sound of that. Can I ask what router you use. Is that something you CAD on sketchup? Thanks
