Re: Another New Antweight..

No no, my 2.4 GHz Orange Rx/ Tx just arrived today... Seems there's a difference within DSM2 between ground and air protocols though... Fortunately i did get a 6 channel air receiver as well, it's just i have 2 robots and i'd rather not have to share receivers between the two, specially since i'm go...

Re: Another New Antweight..

Well, most of my parts have arrived now, so can get on with building a bit more..

However, turns out you can't use a 3 channel ground Rx with a standard aircraft transmitter... suppose it makes sense, but none the less irritating as now I need to find another receiver... :x

Modifying Cheap Transmitters For Mixing

As I mentioned in my last post, I'm waiting for a 2.4GHz orangeRx transmitter/ receiver to arrive at the moment, but because I wanted to play with it now i got out an old 4...

Re: Another New Antweight..

Hehe, would save me writing the name on it at least :P

Had a thought on wheel mountings; gonna try drilling a 3mm hole in a slightly larger steel bolt, then slide it onto a 3mm D bar and hammer it to get the D shape and tight fit... might work, just have to make sure I can get it off again :roll:

Re: Another New Antweight..

Haha, that's quite possible :P Btw, has anyone got any ideas about wheels I could use for Tinny? Need to be about 20mm in diameter and fit a 3mm D shaft... The motors I'm using are from RS and so only have a 5mm long shaft, but otherwise they're much the same as the ones from Polou. I've looked at u...

Re: Another New Antweight..

Yeah, the chassis is all hand cut and folded... by folded I mean beaten with a hammer a lot in an attempt to get it looking roughly like it was supposed too.. No CAD used in the design either; spent many hours sat on my floor with a geometry set, a calculator, and lots of paper :P Fitted the polycar...

I've ordered all the relevant parts (most are from the US branch of Hobbyking th...
