Re: First Time Bulid, Diary, And Noob Questions!

Hey guys, I have decided on buliding a wedge flipper, which is more effective? A front hinged (firestorm esque ) or back hinged (literally ever other flipper ever). Thanks

I found a brushless outrunner with esc inbuilt at hobby King for 16 pounds, but you're right I forgot about the disc, how is My Friendly Uncle doing?

Re: First Time Bulid, Diary, And Noob Questions!

Hi guys, I've been thinking, and I think that building a spinner\flipper would be more fun, and possibly more effective, and I've done the math and it could even be cheaper than a 4WD pusher, would this OK? :roll:

Re: First Time Bulid, Diary, And Noob Questions!

Having picked the parts and chassis/armour (kind of) I am now entering the design phase, so if anyone can recommend any designs for a 4WD pusher that be awesome

On a unrelated note, I've already thought of a name
Assailant
Its probably gonna end up being called that, but my mind may change :D ,

Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

Awesome Peter :D , did it increase the weight compared to your boxy polycarb scoops? i might get my scoops 3D printed out of ABS (curtsey of Shakeys 3D printing service) for Propellant, but it depends :-?
