Re: NanoTwo Kits

Hmm, sounds like one of the motor driver chips might have died (happens either when the motor wires short together or the power wires short to the motor wires). Ship it back to me and I'll repair it for you. Thanks, Rory - you rock. Send me your address =) Will include money to post it back to me a...

Re: Reala's Build Log - Expect mistakes... Lots of mistakes.

3D Printed a new case today and decided to move my current set-up - NanoTwo V2 with 2 motors and wheels - into it. Upon completing the move I decided to re-bind everything (I've since realised I didn't need to) and either by doing that or during the moving of parts I've caused problems... Currently ...

Re: NanoTwo Kits

Hey Rory =) I had a good few weeks with the kit, but I think I've done something to it =( I decided to move it from one ant to the other and now, when I connect the battery to the controller (connected to two motors) it makes a clicking noise and the wheel spins round at the rate of about one cog pe...

Re: Reala's Build Log - Expect mistakes... Lots of mistakes.

Here is a test drive of my prototype. The chassis is 3D Printed and just a modified version I found online. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ha1-t5EXxb4 It shocked me how hard it is to drive. I think it's because the wheels aren't quite straight and all the weight is in the back, meaning it wants to ...

Re: Reala's Build Log - Expect mistakes... Lots of mistakes.

First week of 3D Printing reflections: 1. 3D Printing isn't an out of the box thing. People tell you that and you don't believe them, but quickly find it to be true. You need to invest a lot of time into trial and error and asking people who've been through it already for help and advice. 2. Every f...

Reala's Build Log - Expect mistakes... Lots of mistakes.

Hey all, So I'm Marc from Weston-super-Mare in Somerset. I've been into Robot Wars since it first aired here in the UK, but never considered it financially viable. Over the last few years I've been watching battlebots and now the new Robot Wars, so decided to see if there was a community out there t...
