However, one motor is not spinning properly, it will intermittently spin so it's getting power but It won't spin properly like the other motor. Has anyone got a solution...

Re: Build Diary: Prototype Robot

Thanks for the reply,
I’ll try Araldite to glue it together. Would it be possible to bend it and have a sharp angle as I didn’t want to bend it and it look cuvered. If so how would I bend it?

I have a robot with slanted sides, how would I attach that to the base at an angle. Also how do you post pictures, I could show you the cardboard model of my robot so you know what I mean.

Re: Some questions about building an Antweight

Re: Some questions about building an Antweight

With regards to attaching the polycarbonate there seems to be a kind of 90 degree bracket. Can anyone link me a bracket? Also could anyone suggest a hinge for the flipper.

Forgive my completely noob ignorance, but doesnt the DasMikro have a build in receiver that works with the Devo?
I don't think the DasMikro has a built-in receiver but then again I am also a noob :D .

Re: Some questions about building an Antweight

Thanks, I will look into buying the DasMikro. How much soldering is required? Also, I am using the Devo 7e transmitter could you recommend a receiver for it that worked with the DasMikro. Sorry for all the questions.
Thanks William,
