Re: AWS 46- University of Reading- 28th March 2015

Regarding the "food ban" I have been told that we must inform all the competitiors that they cannot have food in the main room (and I will reiterate this in the breifing). However if the weather is nice then you are free to eat outside on the deck which will still have a clear view of the arena and ...

Re: AWS 46- University of Reading- 28th March 2015

I will get back to you on that one but the chances are yes. We are planning to go straight into the main competition as early as we can so ideally we need everyone there for 10am and signed in by 10.45. If anyone looks to be running late they should let us know so that they can be included in the dr...

Re: AWS 46- University of Reading- 28th March 2015

Just a very quick point as it's looking like we could be having a record number of entries this year. As far as the main compeition goes I believe AntLog has a maximum capacity of 128 robots.

Re: Thread for silly questions about rules!

I've spent a great deal of time working on most of these points to speed up our AWS in Reading after we overran the first time. Last year was considerably smoother and we still had time for breaks during the competition which I feel was down to the following. 1. Having the sign in and tech check lin...

Re: Will's Nanoweights

After a bit of thought I finally decided that I need another nano spinner so I have rebuilt Inertia XT :) It now has proper gearmotors for drive and a deltang rx to get the size and weight down. With the old disc it weighs in around 30g but I have just ordered a new single tooth blade which should c...
