Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

I couldn't see a break out connector or board that went to flying wires and I had the vero board and sockets so it was convenient. My son-in-law is doing the audio files I have asked for plain speech and slightly robotic and am considering a voice changeover switch. Tapping out on the roboteers swit...

Re: Flipper servo

I have used the EMAX ES9256 in the past which is very similar except the wires come out of the bottom of the case. But a quick look round seems to show that is on back order even at Servo Shop where I have bought them in the past.

Re: [Question] Good servo for gripper?

Here was my original gripper with just a thin piano wire push rod bent into a curve to allow it to flex rather than stall the servo. https://oxrooq.db.files.1drv.com/y4mqSx4NEcg7eCUnOVWdWJ0wYiB90b1PeH7_FJ7SPZREoyw9d_RDiZlzZPOVIgjJPhRDjoD3CFlf-6Gvc08SHL8FkM9YKHnZ5WQeltOIsPil470g4JKfv8wDWXQxorLYgYY7PJ...

It is never good to have a servo stalled for any great period it is better to introduce some kind of spring tension into the mechanism so the servo can reach its end stop even when the gripper arms cannot meet as below.

Re: Eddie J - DisinfectANT, Kinnettic Disassembly, Cilit BANG

I just ordered a couple of those for my Fleaweight.
You have to order them from the European section as the UK are not open due to Government restrictions.

Re: Flipper weapon switch mod for DX6i

As long as our flipper is set so throttle stick forward is down and back is flip you can use the throttle cut button. Go down the menu to setup list then down the setup list to throttle cut and set position to act it should work. It is not the best positioned button so I have on one of mine replaced...
