Re: BotFest 4 (25th April 2020)

Hello everyone, With the advent of Covid-19 and recent government messages, I am sorry to announce that I'll have to suspend BotFest 4 until such a time as when it is deemed safe to resume and I cannot make any accurate speculation as to when that might be. Like the Beetle Brawl, I'll be reviewing t...

Re: What transmitters are the favourite now?

Having not used a FS-i6, I couldn't comment. I find the Orange pretty easy to use though, took me about 10 mins to figure out where most of the functions where that I needed (largely multi-model support and curves).

Re: BotFest 4 (25th April 2020)

Haahahaa, excellent, glad to hear the event is well received! I'll see if I can get some time in on getting the arena sorted over the next week or so to get the area floor raised and the pit floor painted. With any luck, it might even have some proper lighting in it this time as well.

Re: Building an arena question

Just to throw this in, the BotFest arena only has a arena floor space of 810mm squared with one side exposed as the pit which does perfectly well for the event that it is used in. I think the overall size is 900mm long x 840mm wide x 300mm tall with 4mm polycarbonate on all the sides and roof. Sound...

Re: What transmitters are the favourite now?

To throw in another option, I know of a few people (myself included) who use the OrangeRX transmitters which in the UK at least is DSMX only I believe. International versions also support DSM2.

Re: After the esc, the other stuff - simplistic questions

To try and answer a few more of your questions: What type and guage of wire is typically used to connect the parts? I typically use 26AWG wire, which I believe is the sort of wiring you'd see on standard JR servo connectors anyway. Never had one burn up on me in the AW class, whatever it is connecte...
