Re: chassis dimensions for 3d print

Thanks. Looks like my bot is a little tubby in places. Specifically though, how thick do people print the chassis floor? is 2mm going to be enough or should it be more? Cheers Forthe bottom, I might go with 1 mm. Unless you're worried you might be vulnerable if flipped over, in which case, go with ...

Re: chassis dimensions for 3d print

Morning Just a quick one. I've taken the plunge and started designing an ant on Tinkercad which i hope to get printed at some stage. What sort of thickness do people use for the chassis floor and external walls? Is there a standard measurement that people use? Thanks Someplaces, walls can be 1mm, o...

Re: AWS56 - 13th October, Bristol

I've seen a few individual fights on youtube from AWS56, but just wondering if anyone took a video of all the fights since Harry wasn't there?

Re: Revision of Nanoweight Cube Size

I think Tom has hit the nail on the head I think Nanos are great and have around 4 or 5 but the fact you only get one fight with one robot tends to put me off building more. I am not sure how practical it would be to run two events at one time but as long as the AWS took priority it might be worth ...

Re: Tx and RX question

You can bind many bots to one transmitter, but I don't think you can have one bot that is bound to two transmitters even if they are never turned on at the same time. I would like to know how (if it CAN be done) as I bought 2 controllers, thinking I could fight any two robots at the same time. Turns...

Re: AWS 53?

I'm probably busy on the 4th, but hope it goes well. Thanks for pushing through on it, it's a shame we've not had more AWSs this year, but I understand the reasons why!

Re: Pololu high power motors on 4s?

You could use 4s on the 12v versions, but over-volting a 6v Pololu motor to 14v+ will more than double the current, draining battery and increasing heat and...

Why test one to destruction and post your results! :lol:

Re: AWS 52 - Greenwich University - Sign up + details

I'm coming. Generally there's a big surge in sign ups towards the end. I think most people are either trying to finish bots before they enter them. Don't worry, yes, the Grantham event is on at the same time, but I reckon you've just got to be patient. This event looks to be a lot of fun. It is bett...

Re: 40Mhz Transmitters

There shouldn't really be a problem. I used 25mhz first time round. Some have used infrared too! The only issue would be too many bots on the one frequency, but since 99% are 2.4G, it should be fine!
