It didn't work very well so I took it apart.

I think I'll have another spinner ready, most likely Inertia 3 but maybe a horizontal..

hi spaceman. sign up will be opening at 10 AM with competitions starting at 11AM. the address for the venue should be in the first post.

in other news, the upgrades to the nanoweight arena are now complete and i opted for a single elimination melee tournament in the end as it will save time and it'll be nice to have a bit of fun at the end with the smallest weight class.

Not normally a fan of melees but it does seem to work well in the nano class for some reason.
I take it you still want me to bring the main arena.

I'm about as done as I can be with robots (I'll attempt a website/forum update from the hotel tomorrow...) but to summarise, S. D. F. and S. D. F. II are both present and working, but J64 had issues with both its main and backup speed controller (I think the original Waller Option D has run its course :() so it'll be present but not fighting. It's a shame, as it's turned out quite well mechanically...

Apart from the regular pairing of RONNY and Make-A-Bot I have Antlog3 all ready to go and a wifi router to provide our own network, so bring your smartphone/tablet/laptop and you can follow your team's (and others') progress from the comfort of your pit table :)

Dan, we're staying in Basingstoke on Friday night so we'll be at the hall nice & early to get Antlog set up before too many people arrive.
