As long as they meet the size and weight limits together, then yes, you can team up two from different teams. A clusterbot also qualifies for the "walker" slot on a team, if you already have 3 rollers competing.

Found some time this morning to take a look at Bruce. I thought I'd power him um,while waiting for the battery for him to come into stock.So I used a spare 6v NIMH that I ordered a while back. Lucky I did,as the pot in one of the servos had moved significantly,to the point where the movement could not be trimmed out. No idea how or when that happened??? So I have stripped out the servos from the chassis,and re-epoxied the pots in the servo.

Oh well. :-?

I appear to have broken Bruces receiver now! :(
It is a hobyking spektrum clone. I think it may have been "flakey" anyway. Unfortunately they are out of stock again. :(
I have back ordered one.Hopefully it will be back in stock soon. :roll:

I have tested it now,and it seems to work great.It is basicaly just shorting out the throttle pot using a switch.
I hope someone will point out if I have done something wrong,I am no expert! :(
Cheers,Jim. :)
