Re: TinyTwo Speed Controllers

Do you have any plans for a beetleweight version?

Re: First antweight (want to check if im on the right track)

Nearly complete! servo boards and lemon Rx work great (although you have to sub trim quite a bit to centralise them) and the 3d printing has turned out well. At 86g, got plenty of weight left for the 1mm polycarb lid and Ti scoop. any tips are welcome.

Cheers, Dan

Re: First antweight (want to check if im on the right track)

ok, epoxy it is!

What thickness do people go for when making 3d printed chassis/ armour? would 1mm be enough or does it have to be a little thicker?

cheers!

Re: First antweight (want to check if im on the right track)

Ive changed my design now and was wondering how to bond polycarb to polycarb for the chassis? I've read the normal superglue will work but is this true?

Im using 2.2k resistors at the moment and I do have some control so im thinking its just the wrong values. Hopefully it a common size otherwise it will be very costly. If anyone can...

Also, does anyone have...
