Re: Flipper weapon switch mod for DX6i

Well that was easy. Followed the instructions on the site Daniel linked to. Particularly liked the idea of using header pins to push in alongside the JST inside the crimp housing, so no soldering onto the Tx itself is required. Because I was in a hurry, for now I simply unscrewed one of the switches...

Flipper weapon switch mod for DX6i

Has anyone actually tried modding their DX6i to add an instantaneous flipper switch on the Throttle channel? If so - how straightforward is it? Is it simply a case of wiring a push-to-make switch between the centre connection of the throttle pot and whichever end of the pot corresponds to lowest res...

Re: Fusion 360

Depends how you've got your tabs/toolboxes set up but right click the body in question in the browser (aka "stack on the left" ;) ), then select "Physical Material". The Physical Material toolbar has two sections - swatches of materials already "In this design" and and a library section grouped into...

Re: Team Antiquarian & Anthony's Ant Army (almost) ready for battle

Little by little, we're edging closer to the point of being ready for AWS61... Recycler has had a few tweaks, including a new drum and replacing the ABS body with Polymax PC . From the left; Recycler III++ with it's new drum, the old drum (printed in blue HK Polycarb), plus a new, toothless and safe...

Re: Team Antiquarian & Anthony's Ant Army ready for battle

OK, that's enough spinners for now. Time to get flippy. This is my latest work in progress. Wanted to try something other than the conventional 4-bar flipper mechanism. I did briefly consider copying Alex's gear-wheel arrangement from ICBINS (could have called it "I can't believe it's not {I can't b...

Starting to think I may have to uproot the family and relocate to somewhere around the Midlands, just so as to maximise the number of antweight events that are within range... :idea:

Re: Team Ions build diary

For testing servos, use a servo tester. I got a "LiteBee HJ Digital Servo Tester" from Amazon for about ten bucks (as i believe one would say your side of the pond). Lots of other models available at similar prices. Basically you plug a lipo into one set of pins and the servo in another (ground at t...

Re: AWS 61 - Wolverton, Milton Keynes - 15th March 2020

Hi Ben,
Thanks for confirming. Will it be the same arena used for RoboShowdown (as per this vid)?

Also - any plans for a flea-weight comp before the start?
