Re: Antweight World Series 58 - 29th June 2019

Ive just about finished prepping my team. I only had time to build three antweights and thunderstrike is still damaged from the last event I went to. Due to this, for the first time, fleadom fighter will be making a solo appearance in the main AWS.

Re: MG90 servos

Would running them directly on 2s work? Ive used them for various weapons and self righting mechanisms before but only ever on 5V.

Re: Pneumatic antweight.

I have some spare gas bottles from my bb gun so i'll probably use one of them. The aim of this project is to make a crusher that can actually crush things rather than just holding them.

Re: Pneumatic antweight.

Thanks Peter. I think the lego ones are mechanical so I was just going to use an Mg 90 servo to operate the switch. I think I also need some way of pumping it up. For that I was going to use a check valve. I have a couple of those lying around as well as a few T connectors. What are people using for...

Pneumatic antweight.

Hi guys. Could someone please let me know what parts I need to get a basic pneumatic system running? As far as I know I need a gas tank of some sort, a switch, some tubing and a ram.

This is the one I was using when I was using modded servo boards as escs. I doubt you'd need to regulate 2S for a lemon rx though. I hope this helps. ☺

Re: Esc and Receiver

I've got a working drive setup going that runs the unbranded chinese ESC. It's a bit on the large side but so long as you shorten the wires and cut off the massive copacitor they aren't too heavy. I use orange rx but that's just me.

Re: Pre modded servo boards for escs?

My Rx doesn't seem to like being run directly on 2 cells. What regulator could I use please?

Re: Axe esc?

I will probably have to get a vex 29 for my axe. I think i'd rather not rely on a servo board.

Linear actuators

Does anyone know of any linear actuators small enough to be used in antweights?

Re: Antweight open/AWS 2019

We could possibly do the doubles as the non spinner warm up before the main event.
