Re: My first antweight thread

That is a nice looking and well thought out robot. The only slight worry is the very low ground clearance combined with the rear overhang would mean in a pushing contest any lifting at the front will result in the tyres losing contact with the floor and hence result in loss of grip.

Re: Flipper servo

I have used the EMAX ES9256 in the past which is very similar except the wires come out of the bottom of the case. But a quick look round seems to show that is on back order even at Servo Shop where I have bought them in the past.
