Re: T_Y's Build Log

Update time! The polycarb for WIA has been cut out and drilled (and re-drilled when I messed up the hole positions). I've screwed the thing together and it looks good, pretty low ground clearance at the front and almost level. The ground clearance should be sorted when I add the forks. https://imgur...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

A bigger grab would be nice, something to look ahead to once I get the concept running. A gripper rumble would be cool! I've spent this week ordering gubbins off ebay and other sites to build/repair my bots. One of the things I picked up was a screw tap, so hopefully that should help my screw holes ...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

It's been a while since the last update. I wish I could say I've made loads of progress but not really. Aside from finishing this design... https://i.imgur.com/kCkvDab.png https://i.imgur.com/cGI6RX3.png Introducing my gripper, tentatively named Problem Exists Between Chock and Chops i.e. PEBCAC (to...

Thanks for hosting! It was great fun, Stolen Concept vs Voodette was certainly a memorable fight! Looking forward to the next event.

Re: T_Y's Build Log

@peterwaller @MarkR Thanks for the suggestions. Would the capacitor go across the power and ground wires between the battery and the arduino then? And I guess across the power and ground wires between the arduino and the motor driver? Small-ish update before BotFest 2 tomorrow. I haven't had a lot o...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

Right! So, I've been working on getting INABIAF to fighting condition. I've printed off a servo harness to mount the servo to the base as the wings on the servo are not oriented correctly to let me screw through the base of the bot and into the screw holes. The harness sits around the servo and serv...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

New year, new plans! I'm planning on having my bots ready for BotFest 2. The front hinged flipper is now called "It's Not a Bug, It's a Feature!". I've ordered a fast servo to go into that (unfortunately, it looks like pink servos are short in supply). "Have You Tried Turning It Off And On Again" is...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

This will be a bit of an infodump. So I've been working on the new flipper, which I'm calling Blue Screen of Death (gotta keep those computing related names coming!). I'm trying to take what I've learned with Hello, World! to improve the design. https://i.imgur.com/AXSV44O.png https://i.imgur.com/ki...

Re: Team Roland build diary

Congrats on the good performance of your bots. Nemesis was definitely a scary one to fight! It's death hum is terrifying!
