Re: Antweight open/AWS 2019

Don't worry. The sign ups wont close until a couple of days before the event which isn't until October. If your having trouble with antlog, maybe send Gary a pm. He created the system so hopefully he'll be able to help. :)

Re: Coping with the demand (An EO's perspective)

I have run several events over the years, and while they have all run smoothly in the past, It was clear yesterday that the high turnout did present difficulties, difficulties that are likely to continue. Personally, I think limiting teams to three robots per team would be a good way to limit entry ...

Re: Antweight World Series 58 - 29th June 2019

Thanks to Chris for putting on a great event. Sorry we had to leave early but we were actually on the way home from a week's holliday and were all very tired. It was great to see everyone again.

Re: Antweight World Series 58 - 29th June 2019

Its ok, I think the shefield one was decided before I even announced my event. Although I could run my event as an AWS if needed. Otherwise it will be an antweight open. Either way it should be good fun. ☺

Re: Pneumatic antweight.

I might just do that then. Are there any servos you might recommend for the job?

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. I could be missing a few things but please let me know. I was planning on using mostly lego components, are these gen...
