Wiring N20 motor terminals

Hi chaps! I've recently deconstructed my bots for the fourth or fifth time, and some of the motor terminals don't appear to be enjoying the abuse of being soldered and desoldered over and over, so I've got a few questions: Are there any connectors that fit the motor terminals? What wire would fit th...

Re: AWS rule polls 2019

Filled it in!

i hope some of the other alterations are gonna involve the use of drones, especially if the no contact restart rule gets written in.

Re: Team BLEEP build diary

Well, AntFreeze didn't go to plan at all! Where to start with the problems? I'll gloss over the excuses, and just say that neither bot was ready on Saturday morning. They both drove (as far as I knew), but they had no weapons. I had the bits - I just had to put them together. Cue arriving at 10:30 a...

Thanks for a great event! Really enjoyed it, and was very glad of the extra time for signing in.

I also forgot to donate, but would like to send moolah somehow. I guess I could IOU until #7? :)

Re: Best glue for wheely loose wheels?

cool - i only just bought some Loctite, in case it was needed. :) i also have the option of hot glue, and Araldite, but I suspect the Araldite won't set in time.

Good point about the gearbox. There is a good chance that I'll destroy everything! :P

Best glue for wheely loose wheels?

Hi chapses! I found out last night that Pimoroni motors have a slightly smaller diameter than my Hobbyking motors, and my Pololu wheels just fall right off of them. I could use some Shakey wheels if needs must, but they're boring black, so I was wondering what kind of glue is best for keeping wheels...

Re: Team BLEEP build diary

1 weekend left, so I guess it must be time to scrap everything I've done for Fermented Melon, and start again. :oops: The night before last, I removed the tabs, made L-shaped brackets to hold the shell together, squeezed in the wheels, fitted the motor mounts, and found somewhere for the weapon moto...

Re: hello

love the grabber!

I'm so jealous of people who can build a bot from anything in seemingly no time. I've spent loads of evenings working on my melon-shaped axe/grabber, and it's pants. :P

Re: Bugglebots

I can recommend listening to the hard core podcast, which has been following the series; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNvsDogU0GM.

It's interesting to hear some opinions from American beetle builders, plus they chat with some of the.. er.. contestants? :roll:
