full body spinner saftey

Post by Spaceman » Thu Oct 04, 2018 6:32 am

So I am having an idea for a full body spinner ant, or at least an ant with the majority of the body covered by the weapon.

My question is, how does one go about doing that safely from a power up/ power down situation?

There's not too much to it, put the on/off switch on the underside, and make sure you've got your fail-safes set correctly so it won't spin up when you switch it on. Unlike in larger weight classes, it's ok to have the switch positioned underneath an ant as they are easy to pick up.

Same way you would with any other spinner. Make sure you set the failsafe on the weapon ESC to cut power to the weapon if the transmitter is turned off. Then it's simply a case of switching the transmitter off if anything goes wrong.
