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

Glad to see you coming back for this one Pete :)

Yeah the last one would have been almost to the day, but alas wasn’t the right number because we missed one series out due to a lot of us being occupied with the Robot Wars reboot.

But I am glad to be hosting this :)

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

The entry limit is not set, however we are expecting a full event. As such, enter 4 but one will be put aside in case gaps need to be filled; we want everyone that has signed up to enter, so the people with 4 entries will be asked to sacrifice on as we did at AWS 58. In the spirit of diversity, we w...

Re: AWS 60 Proposal (Spring 2020)

Hi
Yes, me and Sarah (Tictoc, Out of Micro:trol) are hosting AWS60 in Headington, date is likely November 30th so we can keep the 20 year anniversary date in the right year (we missed one in 2017 I think)

Re: Antweight World Series 58 - 29th June 2019

Up until now, the record for an AWS was 103, shared between Will Thomas at Reading, and Richard Manning at AWS57. Chris managed 123, but if the software allowed it, we’d have been in the 130’s.

Re: Dual motor Axe bot

For Baby Hell I use a fingertech tinyESC. Expensive, yes, but at 3g it’s best for weight and will handle 2 HP motors easy (I use them to drive a beetle with no issue). Control wise, I have a spring-centred Double pole, double throw switch attached to the rudder control. Basically, if you take the le...
