Re: Team Invade Featherweights

Glad you like our robots :) Very happy for you to take inspiration from my designs providing they're not just copies as I have my own antweight and fleaweight versions!

Re: flipper hinge?

All my robots use two bulkheads (even if they are only 2mm thin), and two bent 'tabs' on the flipper arm. I then put screws through both to hold them together. Just be sure to check to check the nut regularly as they do work themselves loose :) I've seen a lot of people use a proper hinge, but the o...

Re: AWS 40

I know that Alan's provisionally got an event on the 23rd and 24th, not confirmed yet though

Count me in for now anyway

Re: Invadants

Time for a round up of the AWS... Irruption: Let's get the bad out of the way. It was fast, uncontrollable, twitchy, and wheelied so it couldn't get under anything. A rebuild for the next one I think with slower motors instead of speed hacked servos and smaller wheels so it fits in the cube better. ...

Re: AWS 39 - Coventry - November 3rd, 2012

Congratulations to Dave for winning the AWS with his corn snake! A well deserved victory. I must admit that having never seen them in the flesh (tape?) before I have always thought of your entries more of a bit of fun than competitive (your choice of names doesn't help that :P ), but certainly today...

The team for tomorrow: http://i1224.photobucket.com/albums/ee363/TeamInvade/632BFCFF-FD1F-4467-A257-1321B91605EC-550-000000B27F95FE18.jpg The pneumatic ant is working, but not properly, so I'll bring that for a bit of testing, as it won't be going in the AWS. It holds around 50PSI now without a majo...

Re: AWS 39 - Coventry - November 3rd, 2012

Signed up with three ants and two fleas for the AWS, and one ant for testing. We've got a long extension lead handy and a shorter one to make it into 7 sockets so we can bring that along (comes in useful at heavyweight events :) )

See you all tomorrow!
