Re: Parts trade

That's a fair point Mark.

How about, we just exchange them at the next event...whenever that is? I have plenty of batteries to test with in the meantime.

Re: Parts trade

I like this idea, and I second what James says about collaring people at events if they don't send what they promised. I have to offer: Want to get rid 1 x Das-Mikro ESC - I appreciate these are not popular but hopefully someone will want it. 2 x 180mah Lipos with 2mm JST-PH connector, as mentioned ...

Re: Team Antiquarian & Anthony's Ant Army ready for battle

Congrats to Anthony and Recycler on Sunday! I was quite worried about facing Recycler before the fight but I thought I was doing quite well! I'm still not 100% sure what happened to MicroNewton, but I think I lost connection because the battery on the transmitter was low. I turned it off and on agai...

Re: MichaelG92's Build Diaries

So, AWS 61...slight improvement on the last AWS; I actually won a fight this time and ended up with one less totalled bot than before. MicroNewton and ArmamAnt! both got first round byes, which meant my first fight of the day wasn't until halfway through the day. MicroNewton's first fight was agains...

Thank you to everyone who played a part in organising this event, I had a great time as always even without a great record on the day!

Re: MichaelG92's Build Diaries

MicroNewton's chassis has been glued back together and ArmamAnt! has had a new switch installed. https://hshmka.am.files.1drv.com/y4m2MSEgUQilAgoTLLh65b58H-XMm-g30WNJDu9r5mokEiTxQbDwHoZMZzZE080gn2rFZ_kOfH2RIdaD_GiLhIZxMfsOi9DExgNTezdxjBg5h3SUWsNhhgR3C9OK6mEQbG36Mc2A77lpsxV5cIS83dMTniOIchTjw1zeetgNoi...

Re: Noob build questions

To give my two pence worth: I second James here; BBB's recommended parts list is very useful, and the guys over there are really helpful if you have any questions on anything. They've even started stocking N20s, most people use 6V 30:1 motors, 50:1 motors are useful if you want more control. I know ...

Re: University of Greenwich - Medway, 28/29 March

I'd certainly be interested in attending an antweight competition, Medway isn't stupidly far away from where I live. Certainly won't have time to get a beetleweight built in time.

Re: MichaelG92's Build Diaries

The aftermath of a brutal AWS 60 for me: MicroNewton lost both fights to Poptart and Virus, and Kwejibo. The second fight was particularly disappointing; I so nearly had it and flipped it a few times but I ultimately died after one too many hits, but remarkably the electronics are working fine now. ...
