A video of the competition is now available: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06lKJhS17dg I am looking into the possibility of getting BotFest 3 ready for the 14th of September though this is still up in the air as I have a whole load of commitments with my o...

Re: Botfest 2 (23rd March 2019)

I am sure I got both rumbles. Glad you enjoyed the event, it is just a nice, relaxed event to come along to and see how your robots fare against someone else's machines.

We are compiling a event video with most of the fights from the event (my phone died during the heats so the last set of heats won't be present in there).

Re: Botfest 2 (23rd March 2019)

A massive thanks from me to everyone who attended today, we ended up with nearly double the number of competitors from the pilot! Despite the issues we were having with the arena floor (clearly, the masking tape over the join between the floor boards was the overall winner of the event :P), we had s...

Re: Botfest 2 (23rd March 2019)

Hoping to see you there Kyro! A few things for this event: - Parking: There is some parking available on the roads around the church. There is a small car park as well but be aware, it is quite rough. As you come up from the docks, at the crossroads (where the church is in the NW position), turn lef...

Re: Botfest 2 (23rd March 2019)

Train tickets booked! Please don’t cancel 😏. Nearly had a moment over the weekend where it sounded as if the booking I had made would be cancelled but no, still on course (phew!). A small update though, turns out the cafe downstairs will be closed on the day of the event. We'll have a kettle with s...

Re: Antlog issue

My apologies, I seem to have locked the database for Antlog. Went to the top bar and clicked on export by mistake, could it be unlocked please?

Re: Newbies Build Diary.

Due to Uni work, progress has been intermittent, but there's not much left to do to be ready for the next AWS. I have signed up for it on Antlog and was just wondering if I needed to do anything else before the event. I'm looking forward to it, and meeting all of you and testing how (badly) my ant ...

Re: AgoBros team, new member on the platform

You can replace parts but your robot still has to meet the tech check requirements I think (4" cube size max, 150g max). There was a query about replacing the body during a event in a different thread which I don't recall the outcome of but if it was me, I'd simply fix what was broken.

Re: AWS rule polls 2019

Personally, I already enforce the "spinners need switches" rule and the "LiPo bags for charging in" for BotFest, they just seemed like sensible things to do. There was one thing that I think might be worth discussing though in regards to the aerials rule change. Osu is a bit weird in that it uses a ...

Re: Best glue for wheely loose wheels?

One of my Ants has its wheels glued on with a Locite Superglue which hasn't failed me yet. However, be warned, overzealous gluing (assuming it is a N20) will cause the gearbox to lock up if it gets onto the gears.

Botfest 2 (23rd March 2019)

Hey Everyone! After a bit of a wait (apologies :P), I am pleased to announce BotFest will be making a return for 2019! Following on from the pilot, we are sticking with the Church so this event will be running on the 23rd of March at the following location from 11:00 - 17:00 . St. Lukes Church Poult...
