Re: BotFest 4 (25th April 2020)

That sucks, now it is impossible to have events in England or Scotland, up to 30 people are still allowed in Wales?

Re: Antweight ESCs

My ESC with built-in receiver, Malenki-Nano, is available on the BBB web site and has braking built in.

But that *only* works if you use a AFHDS2A compatible transmitter, e.g. Turnigy i6. If you want to use some other transmitter, look elsewhere.

Re: Ant Battery

No, those are out of stock too. I picked some up at the beginning of the year and I noticed there is now a big shortage of small lipo packs, even the usual ebay sellers which Kyro recommended don't have any more small packs (<300mah) There are still some 300mah 2s packs on HK but they're a bit on th...

Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

Excellent, that voice is much better than the Antfreeze one (Sorry John), looks great! Now with added tap-out-ability.

Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

Excellent work Peter! You know there are dedicated Raspberry Pi header pin breakout boards available which would make that veroboard unnecessary ... Also, can we have a less robotic voice than the Antfreeze one, otherwise, the system works really well! Does it handle tap-out/ surrender function? (No...

Re: ESC with built-in receiver - interesting?

Sorry to hear that it's toasted your weapon motor. I'd recommend the easiest solution - modify the transmitter to have a self-centring channel3 axis. But you could also adjust the limits of the channel, paricularly on retract, so that it won't stall on full power while the stick is down, but will st...

Re: Can someone walk me through transmitter setup?

Okay, I've built a cardboard test robot for the weird 3-channel brushed ESC I bought. I can use breadboard wires to easily swap the motor leads, and am testing with the Flysky transmitter. It wasn't one of mine was it? Malenki-nano? If so, the mixing is enabled by default but you can turn it off, i...

Re: Help/Build diary for/of my first antweight.

Looks like it will probably work. Check that the servo can run off the maximum battery voltage (e.g. 2S lipo = 8.4v) otherwise you'll blow it. I assume it's a "high voltage" servo, then it will be fine. I see your brown wire - the GND / negative power to the servo - which you've shown going through ...
