Re: Flipper servo

If you search for '450 heli servo' you'll find a whole load of similar specced servos. Places like Bangood stock a lot of variants.

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

Not a fighty robot but a buildy one! For a long time all my CNC routing needs were done by a basic 3020 which worked 'okay' but really couldn't manage any metals decently, had a small bed size and was slow. I started a long time ago gathering parts for a new one and have finally got around to making...

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

Does this bot have two batteries? Are they two, 1S batteries to distribute the volume to make the design work where a single 2S would be too big; or two, 2S batteries to get more power like one for the wheels and one for the servo? Power side it's just a normal 2S battery. I'm using 2 single cells ...

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

A question about the geared drives ... I'm guessing that the fairly big toothed gears are custom 3D printed? What are the pros and cons of using these vs the injection moulded production gears from China, with smaller (0.5 modulus) teeth? Mike. Yes they are custom 3D printed. I don't use injection ...

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

What happened to filthy casuals? I was rewatching AWS 49 and really like this bot. Looks nifty! Will you ever bring him back? Filthy Casuals as a personal bot is retired but it still somewhat lives on. That geared drive iteration worked well enough it formed the basis for quite a few robots since: ...

Re: Shipping from China held up?

Yes as Chinese new year was extended and a lot of work places are shut due to the virus. Shipping is both delayed and has a huge backlog. Patience is key when ordering from there.

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

1. Is the power supply for the 4, DC4S chargers something special or will it just show up on searches for them? I'm leaning towards duplicating that set up since I'm building for myself and my 4 children. I think we will all have a lot of bots by the end of the year if all goes well. Also what woul...

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

1. Can you please tell me what the Grey and Blue devices are in the background? 2. What rpm do you usually use for your motors (driving wheel motors)? 3. If you play D&D, based on your experience at Antfreeze 7, do the hit dice and attack for the drillbot seem relatively accurate? (don't worry abou...
