Re: Antweight 4WD wiring

I don't see it being a problem, what are the chances of the wire between the esc and the motor actually getting broken? They're not likely to get directly hit given they'll be right in the middle of the robot, and if a wheel takes a hit, the gearboxes break before the electrical connection is damage...

Re: GeorgeR's robots

Sunnysky r1106 - they're the most robust of the little 110X size motors I've found.

Re: Rules Question: Multiple Clusters on a team?

You can definitely enter multiple clusters on one team, it's the 4th spot that is limited to a cluster or walker, the first three spots are open and can be anything.

Re: Silly American question

This is definitely the most unexpected question to find here, but I do actually know the answer! Stoke is a very common place name in Britain, it's derived from the old English word 'stoc', which means settlement. Sub means under or beneath. (ie. submarine, sub-standard, etc.) Don is from the old En...

How did she do? I've always wanted to see one of these in action!
Let's just say that half way through the event I decided make an additional armour panel for the top of my robot.

Re: ESC questions & why not USA shipping

The T16 looks like a good option, I've got the smaller T8sg which seems nice so far. Having the option of multiple protocols on one tx is great.

Re: Antweight Rules Proposal

You do definitely need a way to release your opponent, you can only hold for 20s, so if you couldn't get them in the pit you'd be in trouble.

Re: Antweight Rules Proposal

Shakey's pretty much covered it, but I'll add my thoughts. Yes, the grabber wins in this situation. You seem to be suggesting that this is an unfairly easy way for a grabber to win, but the fact is it's really hard to grab and control an opponent like that. You pretty much need a grab+lift type robo...

Re: ESC questions & why not USA shipping

If you're looking for an antweight esc in the USA, I'd suggest either the Endbots DESC, or a pair of the fingertech tinyESC's. The DESC is functionally the same as the nanotwo's, they come in two versions, one with the receiver built in (like the nanotwo v2/v3) and one without (like the nanotwo LT)....
