Re: AWS 61 - Wolverton, Milton Keynes - 15th March 2020

Another thank you to everyone who organised the event, I had a great time as well. The first fight Up the Antie has won since RoboShowdown in August, and Push Comes to Shove maintained it's record of having 3 wins and 2 losses at every event it's ever gone to. Vertigo was a bit of a flop, but is bei...

Re: AWS 61 - Wolverton, Milton Keynes - 15th March 2020

I think you're pretty much always OK to find a second driver on the day, there's bound to be people available. It's just usually better to find someone in advance just in case.

Re: What is a team?

If you want 2 different drivers, you can just enter as 2 different teams. You can also have the same robot in multiple teams, but not in the same competition. It's mainly to reduce numbers so that there is essentially a limit of 4 robots per person.

Re: What is a team?

Also (apart from clusters) each team has to have a separate driver

Re: Good speed for antweights?

Most antweights use approx 500rpm motors (or faster), so it would probably be a little bit slow (but not massively).
50:1 or 30:1 ration N20s are the usual motors people use.

Is there an absolute hard limit on how many robots that can be fitted in?
From what I've heard, the maximum antlog can cope with is 128

Re: Basic Flipper Hinge Question

They're each about 6 grams. I only used one, as they are relatively big (about 3cm long).

Re: Basic Flipper Hinge Question

For my first antweight I used a ready made plastic hinge: https://www.homecrafts.co.uk/mini-hinge-pack-of-10?gclid=CjwKCAjw67XpBRBqEiwA5RCocezAlQa5iv1mo19mMftZrmJpKAl_tVJunv_QQBdyLV3au55P7duc_BoCUQAQAvD_BwE Definitely not a perfect solution, but it works as a lower tech answer - and it looks good co...

Re: Coping with the demand (An EO's perspective)

I personally would prefer the possibility of 4 entries, with shorter fights to allow more time, rather than 3 entries. I do understand if it gets dropped to 3 entries on the day to reduce numbers for antlog though. I agree with kyro about being more restricted about delays due to robots not being re...
