I think there will be several ants at Barnsley, enough for a small competition anyway. I will be taking my 2, Team Toon will take Ant & Dec, Dave W will have his and several other HW/FW teams now have ants. Who else is going?? Its going to be a busy event for me since I will be taking a heavy, 3 fea...

I use a DX6i in Ant Awe and it works very well although the 2 parts of the rx can be annoying. I run the engineering club at school and we have 10 DX5e sets for the robots and they all work really well, I will be using them in my two new machines (Ice and Tidal Wave 3). They seem like good value for...

Actually I think that axes have a better chance of damaging thin metal than thick plastic, I know for a fact that the axe on Baby Hell has dented the 0.5mm aluminium on Ant and Dec, as far as I am aware, it hasn't done any damage to any plastic covered ants (although I may be wrong) As it stands the...

I'm not complaining about the ruling- I now have an excuse to build another ant :) but I was just thinking that if the metal armour rules are discussed in the future, this could be a possible solution. Until then though, i intend to keep Ant Awe for demos at Roaming Robots & Robots Live and build a ...

Personally, I don't have a problem with ants being made from billets although it seems from what people have been saying that the main reason for keeping rule k was to stop this.

I have just been re-reading this discussion and one thing occured to me- seeing as the main motivation for keeping rule k was to stop people building ants from metal billets (which is fair enough). Although the ants that started this were made from 0.5mm aluminium sheet- which is just as damageable ...

Well, seeing as I built the ants that started this, here is my view. I only built these ants like this becuase it was the simpliest way for me to get the shapes that I wanted (BTW the aluminium is 0.5mm thick)- I have tried other ways to make ant awe but they were either too heavy or didn't work. Th...

Hi, Ant Awe, Ant and Dec were not designed to compete in the AWS, they were made to play around with between the heavyweight and featherweight fights at roaming robots and robots live and the current versions will definately not be at an AWS. I would love to come to an AWS at some point- The next ve...

Thanks for running the ants this weekend, it was great to be able to enter Ant Awe into a proper competition. Well done to Simon with Dynamite for winning the non spinners and to the other winners as well. Ant Awe is getting a couple of small changes (faster motors are first on the to do list) but I...

I will be taking 3 ants along this weekend (2 which I have built for others).

Alex from team Blitz will also be taking one.

We are also trying to get an arena done for next week so that we could run multiple fights simultaneously. (thats assuming that you are taking yours Dave)
