Re: Team Ions build diary

The km1203mdt is, as far as I know, just a different gearing. 6kg torque is still crazy high for an ant, and the faster speed means you can use a less aggressive linkage for the same flip. Personally I wouldn't bother swapping them out, but it's up to you. Getting sent the wrong thing is always anno...

You can also achieve braking by putting a (I seen to recall shakey said 60 ohm?) resistor across the motor terminals

Re: Antweight 4WD wiring

Ah, having reread I dunno how I interpreted that as series vs parallel. Apologies.
Bit yeah. I've never had a wire break in a fight, nor been aware of one breaking. Heck, even after frogger got obliterated by Drizzle in that bossfight the electronics still all worked!

Re: Antweight 4WD wiring

You mean have your motors in series or parallel?
Parallel. Definitely.
So the way I do it is I wire my esc into the first motor, then piggyback off that motor. It just keeps wires away from the middle of the bot. Basically you wind up with motor 1 fully wired in, then motor 2 piggyback off motor 1

Re: Rules Question: Multiple Clusters on a team?

I swear there was talk a while ago about 2 guys who were each gonna enter 4-clusters as their team, and the 8 clusters between the 2 of them were gonna consist of 16 identical spinners.

Am I misremembering? At the very least I don't remember ever seeing it.
