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

Just a question, Ive seen that HDPE is more common, available in more thickness's and cheaper than polycarbonate, would 2mm or 1.5 mm HDPE be a suitable armour?

Re: Team Playstation All-Stars Antweights

I might buy a 'fire ant'. it looks like some of the parts could be useful for antweights, the motors can really move! And I wouldn't be surprised if the driver is a sabertooth like module

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

Thanks guys, I've looked at your comments, and I'm going to revise the parts a little bit
DRIVER:
2x Botbitz 10a
Chassis/armour:
now all 1.5mm polycarb
Battery
2s 280mah LiPo
Wheels: Definitely going for wheels now.

Do the botbitz need a DSM2 receiver? or can it go with my current set up?
