Re: Pre modded servo boards for escs?

You don't need to apologize it is all good information you have been posting.
If people aren't interested they don't have to read it but I am sure it will be useful to those contemplating using servo boards. :D

I think you are correct it is only necessary if you are running 3S.

Re: 5V bec?

Here is the one I use in all my controllers.
It has a low drop out voltage of 0.4 V and can deliver 1.5 A.

Re: Antweight World Series 58 - 29th June 2019

You can have parts of the robot unfold in the arena but it has to be done by remote control.
You can't just bend bits in that are held there by the cube, the robot must enter the arena in the state but not necessarily orientation that the fit in the cube.

Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

I have done some strengthening in the pits but I need to be able to lift the arena in and out of the car on my own so weight is a factor. There is always going to be some damage to the arena with spinners but some times particularly with the big free for all at the end people, and this has included ...

Re: What is it with Americans and imperial units?

There are some of us who are old enough to have used imperial units even in the UK and if they are like me they really do appreciate the improvement going metric made once you got used to the idea.

Re: Pink servo??

Paul I was thinking more for Cluster Bots.
The screw on the pink servo looks very slightly smaller than a M2.5.
I tried one but it wont go in more than about 1 turn so I guess it some american thread.

Re: Pink servo??

I just got 3 of these D0474HT servos and they look and feel like a really nice little servo but I still need to try them in combat. As Paul says not quite as powerful as the pink ones but at full 2 cell operation and half the cost and weight well worth a try and only 10 days from order to arrival qu...

Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

I have replaced the polycarb wall that surrounds the arena plus the two polycarb low walls that are across two of the pits. I have introduced some polycarb angle into the pits and glued some more support wood under the pits to further strengthen them. B&Q don't do 8 x 4 sheets of hardboard so I have...

Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

I am looking at giving the arena a bit of an overhaul as it is beginning to look a little worn. I have got replacement polycarb for the 200 mm high wall that surrounds the arena and protects the cover plus some for the small walls on two of the pits. I will probably also have to finally replace the ...

Re: Botbitz 10 amp ESCs for weapon

The DMC809 is only rated at 6 volts not the full 8.4 V which you get from running directly off a 2 cell LiPo that the TGY-306G-HV was. I have used the EMAX ES9256 HV it is a very similar spec, slightly more expensive and the wires come out the bottom but otherwise is almost exactly the same. See htt...
