Great my spinner is now working except the electronics are now exposed as are taped just behind the disc and all 4 motor wires are off the nanotwo and my soldering iron has died, I fear unless 4 solder joints directly onto the esc can happen early in the morning I will have wasted a lot of energy on it :x oh well if it does work I will be absolutely evil :D and if it doesn't then many chassis will live to fight another day

Apologies for the short notice (I have been terrible at getting myself organised this week >_<): Can anyone give me and Tracy a lift to/from the venue from Bath before and after the AWS? We'll be at the city centre travelodge, hopefully someone else is going that way and it's not too much of a detour for them?

Sorry Joey, would have given you a lift, but my step-dad wants to avoid the traffic in city centre.

Many thanks to Harry for running a great event today. Although my main team didn't do very well I had a great time and I can't wait for the next one. See some of you soon hopefully at ant open. :-)

Thanks to Harry for hosting the AWS. It was great fun and pretty happy with my new robot. In an interesting twist it turns out it was on less than half power... One servo had a sheared shaft I hadn't noticed building it.

Yes another great event thanks to Harry.
Despite all my spinners having problems Flippant did surprisingly well and not only did I manage to carry two robots to the pit I even manged to drop them in instead of my usual trick flipping them over the top and back into the arena. :oops:

Usual Reading suspects I think it was Alex first and Rory second but I can't remember the third.
The final was great Rory's spinner had to win twice and in fact won the first and was hitting Alex's machine hard in the corner when he was suddenly flipped over the wall into the pit.
I can't remember the Fleas but I came second in the Nano's to Rory :lol: which sounds quite good until you find out there were only two people with Nano's so we only ran one fight and I lost. :oops:
One thing came out of the event was how good Antlog is.
We used some of my old paper charts and had quite a few problem although in fairness it was partly due to extra entries after the start we went from 4 groups of 10 to 3 of 10 and 1 of 14.
