Re: AWS55 - 30th June 2018 - Dunchurch Village Hall

Thanks so much for organising and running this event, we had an amazing time. Yin and Yang are the first robots I have designed and built myself and we we thrilled to get as far as we did (albeit with a little bit of luck in some fights). Can't wait to work on them some more for the next event! :)

Re: Newbie - DasMikro Burnout

My three replacement boards turned up today that banggood sent me because the first three blew. Just soldered the first one up, forward, backwards, forwards... pop, pop, flash, smoke, smoke.
