Maybe...

Post by MicroGravity100 »

...I'll build this for the next AWS. Or the one after that. I dunno. Ants are too fiddly for me and my lack of hand-eye coordination :roll:

I'm looking to get it 3D printed, as parts obviously, then have four 50:1 motors as drive and a 100:1 motor for the axe, servo board controller, although probably a Sabertooth for drive as I'm sick to death of the poor quality drive of servo boards, and a 2S 120mAh LiPo. It'll probably be massively overweight, but it (just) fits in the cube and would be a nice gimmick at RW and RL shows.

100:1 would be way too slow for an axe I think, and a sabertooth would be pretty bulky. Try botbitz?

but +10 for coolness :)

100:1 will be too slow on 2 cells. Baby Hell has a 50:1 HP motor on his.

Great design, i'm interested to see if you;d fit a sabretooth. I can make servo boards non-twitchy for you, just need your remote if you're coming to deeside ?

Thanks Sam and Haz!
Dave, I am coming to Deeside, I'll talk to you there.
For some reason I had it in my head that Baby Hell used a 100:1 on the axe :-? . A 50:1 motor would be more convenient for delivery too, as BotBitz don't sell a 100:1 option! The whole thing has been created to size with a Sabertooth in, but the Botbitz ones are 10A, and about the same price. If only they told you what they weigh...

We use to stock 100:1 motors but no one bought them :(
Will look at tacking some of the specifications on the website shortly to improve the available information on the products :)
