Re: BotFest 4 (25th April 2020)

The image for the draws isn't showing for me. Fingers crossed we can go ahead this month but if not then we all have time to further refine our designs at least. If you can't see the draw here's a link to the FRA post; https://www.fightingrobots.co.uk/threads/14398-botfest-4-(25th-april-2020)?s=d53...

Re: Ellis's (Team BANANAPHONE/A12) build log!

Hi Ellis It sounds like one of your drive motors could be soldered in backwards (I'm guessing the left one if forward on the stick is making you turn left). You can fix it by pushing forward on the stick, seeing which wheel spins the wrong way & swapping the motor round. If this fixes the forwards &...

Flysky FS-I6 language settings

Hey everyone Different sort of issue here. I've bought a Flysky FS-I6 from ebay & the menus are all in Chinese. The physical item, the menu & the box are in English and after checking the manual & the menu in English on my other FS-I6 I can't find a way to change it. Does anybody know of some way to...

Re: Ant Battery

Hobbyking do have a 260mah lipo, which looking at the dimensions listed would only be slightly bigger than than the old 180's, so at least there's an option. https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-nano-tech-260mah-2s-35-70c-lipo-battery.html?queryID=7dd4bf8e361d7473894311de7768d843&objectID=83444&index...

Re: ESC with built-in receiver - interesting?

It was my fault the motor burnt out, not the esc :oops: . I'll definitely change the tx settings before replacing the motor, thanks for the responses.

PS. Am very happy with the esc overall & hope these work out for you Mark, I would certainly be interested in getting more in the future.

Re: ESC with built-in receiver - interesting?

I've wired up my Malenki into my old axe bot & after testing for about 5 minutes the axe, running off the weapon channel, stopped working. The motor was very hot, but the drive channels still work fine & the esc still makes noises when I try the weapon channel, so I suspect it's just a burnt out mot...

Re: Parts trade

Seems like an interesting idea. I don't think people not sending what they promised will be an issue since that person wouldn't be able to attend an event again without getting collared. I'll get the ball rolling by saying I have a few 500rpm N20's going spare. I don't need anything specific atm but...

Are they going to Do AWS 62 :?:
They are still working out the details at the moment. I believe Chris Malton is likely to be hosting it sometime around June/July. Whether that will be at Rugby again or not hasn't been decided yet.

Re: Team Phyte Antweight Builds & Event Reports

So AWS61 had a lot of ups & downs for me. 3 of my entries took early exits but then something happened & The Little Sytes of all bots went on solid run, making the group semi-finals in the losers bracket before eventually losing to Stewie, who went on to finish 4th overall. Massive thanks to Sion fo...
