Re: TeamScrewUps poopoo bots

if you switch the wheels around, they will sit a good few mm closer to the body each side... this may also help...

Re: TeamScrewUps poopoo bots

if those are 32mm pololu wheels then i think 13cm is too wide to fit diagonally, however it looks like you might get away with it fitting between opposite corners... with 32mm wheels you can be about 110mm wide and fit the cube diagonally, however with the same setup you can be about 145mm wide and ...

Re: Questions about LEDs and the OrangeRX R610V2

my beetle led light was a set of led's from a poundland cob headlight that i wired into the positive and negative of an old servo lead and plugged it into a spare channel on my rx... worked great for me... the cob ran off of 6v which was funnily enough the same output from the bec built into one of ...

Re: Thinking about a one off competition.

i noticed the front raises when you flip, and your design fully encloses the wheels. do your wheels still touch the floor when the front is raised? im pretty sure the original had the tyres exposed and an angled rear so it would still have wheels on the ground when flipping as the front hinged flipp...

Re: Thinking about a one off competition.

you definitely want a soldering iron... a twist can easily shake itself lose and shorts and lipo's really dont mix well you can pick one up off ebay for about £6... if you are new to soldering in general practise on some random bits of wire and if you have any old broken electronics, open it up and ...

Re: Thinking about a one off competition.

firstly, its amazing to see how far ant components have come in just 7 years. it looks like i could fit my esc/rx/lipo into a package about the size of just your lipo. secondly, as for servo's, a fairly popular one lately is the kingmax km1203md. boasts (iirc) about 9kg/cm at about .08 but cost a de...

Re: ESC with built-in receiver - interesting?

iirc, the default setting within the esc is for the weapon channel to be set to the 3rd brushed channel... there is a number of pulses (i think 8 or 9 but dont hold me to it) that switches the 3rd brushed channel with w1 (left pad if both are located at the top of the board with antenna board pointi...
