Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

What plastic do you use for your Armour, and how do you cut it out?

Re: Team 1202 build Diary

Christmas day and my better half gives me the gift of a N20 with a esc built in from Bristol Bot Builders. While the kids play with their new stuff and she assembles Jigsaw I start designing a bot around using it as a lifter. What I end up with is this: https://i.postimg.cc/JzxrMdHX/20191227-072423....

Re: AWS 60 - Headington, Oxford - 30th Nov 2019

I have a work colleague who is bringing his first bot so I will be dropping down to just one bot.

Hopefully said bot will be the new Crabulon.

Re: AWS 60 Proposal (Spring 2020)

Ooohh interesting... I remember Richard, who hosted AWS57 this spring, mentioned potentially being interested in hosting one again at some point. Either way if you do host an event, AWS or not, in Somerset I more than likely attend. I have had moving fun this year but may look into hosting one next...

Re: Coping with the demand (An EO's perspective)
