Re: Is this partlist for a antweight good?

The motors are good but you can get similar ones cheaper on ebay. The controllers I haven't tried but others have recommended them and the spec looks good, obviously you need two. They are the batteries I usually use. The TX Rx I prefer DSM2 / DSMX especially if at a later date you want to use a Ror...

Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

Having built a new spinner Flea I know there is little opportunity to run it so I have built a new flipper which although not flea sized is around the right weight so the two can be combined as an antweight cluster. https://ol5n6w.db.files.1drv.com/y4mrrjkGtz-ljUgFISdb09KECz4pqdP8rfbG3wAqocb43vC1Y-m...

Re: Peter Wallers Fleas

There are two separate motor gearboxes in one case I found them on ebay a year or so back but they don't seem to be available anymore.
The are much to fast hence the extra gearing which halves the speed but they are still quite quick.

Re: Servo straight to battery

You can leave the negative wire and just move the red wire to the battery plus but after the switch or where it can be turned off.

Re: Best NanoTwo alternative?

I am not particularly recommending the Dasmikro but the problems with controllers cutting out with high power servo's is when they take more current than the controller BEC can deliver. The Turnugey S302G-HV can run straight from the 2 cell lipo so it shouldn't be a problem.

Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

After the testing against the old chassis I noticed the balance wasn't quite as good and on closer examination I found the PLA disc had cracked so I have reprinted it in nylon.

Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

My horizontal spinner Combatant was supposed to be an upgrade on Anticyclone with more power and reach but it has so far been a disappointment. A combination of too small a clearances and balance problems have made it unreliable and ineffective in battle. I have finally decided to rebuild it and try...

Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

Yes must make a decision on that soon. In the mean time I have been playing with an idea for an axe though I probably will not get round to building it. Basically it is a gear on the end of a standard gear motor which has teeth around 180 degrees. The meshes with a gear on the end of the axe arm and...

Re: "Flip-it” new build/project

I would also be interested and as you say any schools or clubs would find it a cheaper way into antweights.

Re: Peter Wallers Fleas

It's been a while since I built a Flea mainly because we don't get time to fight them at AWS events but I have always been disappointed with my Flea spinner Fleabite so I thought I would have a go at improving it. By using one of the little double ended gear motors I was able to save enough weight t...

Re: New antweight weight allowance for AI antbots

The problems of trying to incorporate all the requirements for an autonomous robot into the Antweight arena I believe far outweigh the number of likely entries. Besides which running a complex autonomous robot up against a spinner is a recipe for disaster. You would probably be better off going for ...

Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

I have put one of the modules into a flipper to do some testing. https://1p5ura.db.files.1drv.com/y4m0tgDMHz0qJ8v9Pod1Mtr3VjBQiW6i0k2zwwvWEwIwHvCiQc3lyETkxAUrONMnJkw7-O0h_4ny7D0st5LGJMwM5gQ3WuUKWRVbYYGkQZWJEAS0iLi6jguv_sa2Vw_EaqYixCv-jfy3RYe4SNNLtz6WHjRdJ_zOS8V3HgtqNcsg0XaT-77BBpa7GhyG6DlbEEAX6gf9uK...

Much closer for me and more central for the country as a whole. :roll:
