Several issues... I think the receiver is duff so I need to swap that out. I have fixed the leaks as best I can, the air escapes in about 5 minutes. when it reaches as low as 10 psi the shuttles move and fire which looks like this...

It is also now 5g over weight, I have no idea how I will sort that by tomorrow.

Just wondering... how much does each tyre and wheel weigh, and what is the overall diameter? Also, the link is dead for the tyres, which ones are they?

Sorry, didn't check that. corrected with the url now.
The wheels are 20.5 x 11.5 and weigh about 2.5g each I think. The new hub design may have changed that but I don't have an accurate set of scales here to confirm.

Hi All!

I've been busy, but I have been building in my spare time. I've made my simplest, yet most frustratingly compact pneumatic system to date. It works, and it works reliably. Now I need to build a robot around it.

Teaser below. I hope to get something together over the summer.

That looks beautiful, Josh.
Loving the simplicity, and those linkages.
