Re: Arc Robotics AWESC Problem

Thanks Matt. Have been in contact with Chris (never expected a reply at 11 a night!) and he think the board ive got wouldnt have an issue. Travelling down now so will try and resolve with some assistance from you guys tomorrow at AWS as likely to be something daft we’ve done.

Cheers
Jeff

Arc Robotics AWESC Problem

Trying to set a robot up for AWS56 on Saturday with one of these, but cannot get it to go into calibration mode. Have tried all positions of both sticks on the DEVO 7E but cannot get anything other than solid green LED and dim yellow LED. When first powered on without transmitter on one side spins b...

Re: AWS56 - 13th October, Bristol

Sorry for the Newbie questions ..... Travelling down from Scotland and staying overnight with friends on the way, do we need to be there for 9am sharp or is there a bit flex? What (other than the obvious robots, controller, battery charger, us) do we need to bring? Any other tips for a new family te...

Re: AWS56 - 13th October, Bristol

Have signed up, hopefully the robot will be finished. If not we'll still come along to see how it all works and learn what we can.

Re: Aldi 3D printer - Any good

Well I've taken the plunge and ordered one of the Aldi printers. Will report on how I get on as things progress. Ordered some batteries and filament from Hobbyking so just need Rory's ESC to be available and that's the first anyweight built.

Aldi 3D printer - Any good

Aldi are selling one for £300, the website is as usual a little short on specs but a look on the manufacturer website suggests it prints between 100 and 400 microns

Any thoughts as to its suitability for ant and feather bodys and parts from those more knowledgeable?

Re: scottish borders ant challenge..thingy

Would be interested in coming along to find out a bit more, might even have time to knock together a bot from scratch.

As for public transport, google suggests train to either Edinburgh or Gala and then bus but at over 4 hours it isn't hugely practical. No idea if there is a way by bus from Carlisle.

Re: TinyTwo Speed Controllers

In the same boat as you Mike and am also looking to use Rory's system. On the spec sheet linked earlier in the thread there are links to recommended parts, the only one that doesn't work is the battery, I'm looking at using https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-nano-tech-180mah-2s-25c-lipoly-pack-comp...
