Re: Parts trade

Seems like an interesting idea. I don't think people not sending what they promised will be an issue since that person wouldn't be able to attend an event again without getting collared. I'll get the ball rolling by saying I have a few 500rpm N20's going spare. I don't need anything specific atm but...

Are they going to Do AWS 62 :?:
They are still working out the details at the moment. I believe Chris Malton is likely to be hosting it sometime around June/July. Whether that will be at Rugby again or not hasn't been decided yet.

Re: Team Phyte Antweight Builds & Event Reports

So AWS61 had a lot of ups & downs for me. 3 of my entries took early exits but then something happened & The Little Sytes of all bots went on solid run, making the group semi-finals in the losers bracket before eventually losing to Stewie, who went on to finish 4th overall. Massive thanks to Sion fo...

At most events, there isn't a fee but there will usually be a box for donations to cover costs.

Re: Rules Question: Multiple Clusters on a team?

I swear there was talk a while ago about 2 guys who were each gonna enter 4-clusters as their team, and the 8 clusters between the 2 of them were gonna consist of 16 identical spinners. That was Andy Hibberd & Ellis Ware from Rapid & Magnetar. They were going to enter them at AWS57 so they could pr...

Re: Building an arena question

A central pit would definitely be an interesting change, but depending on design could be a bit of a pain to clear out after every fight, especially if something small but important flies in there.

Re: ESC with built-in receiver - interesting?

I would be interested as well. Am not fussed about 1 or 2 N20's personally, 3 channels & a receiver for less than 5g sounds great! (Although I might have to improve my soldering first).

Re: Summer 2020 event interest?

Considering you guys have several ideas for games that we never get chance to play I think this could be an excellent idea. I for one would definitely be interested.
