Re: Newbies Build Diary.

Due to Uni work, progress has been intermittent, but there's not much left to do to be ready for the next AWS. I have signed up for it on Antlog and was just wondering if I needed to do anything else before the event. I'm looking forward to it, and meeting all of you and testing how (badly) my ant ...

Re: AgoBros team, new member on the platform

You can replace parts but your robot still has to meet the tech check requirements I think (4" cube size max, 150g max). There was a query about replacing the body during a event in a different thread which I don't recall the outcome of but if it was me, I'd simply fix what was broken.

Re: AWS rule polls 2019

Personally, I already enforce the "spinners need switches" rule and the "LiPo bags for charging in" for BotFest, they just seemed like sensible things to do. There was one thing that I think might be worth discussing though in regards to the aerials rule change. Osu is a bit weird in that it uses a ...

Re: Best glue for wheely loose wheels?

One of my Ants has its wheels glued on with a Locite Superglue which hasn't failed me yet. However, be warned, overzealous gluing (assuming it is a N20) will cause the gearbox to lock up if it gets onto the gears.

Botfest 2 (23rd March 2019)

Re: "Flip-it” new build/project

The size feels OK, plenty big enough for a mass rumble of most of the Ants that went to the BotFest pilot back in July but small enough to prevent no battling in 1v1 fights. I think the arena used for Ant Freeze is about the same size as yours, perhaps a little bigger but definitely not more than a ...

Re: "Flip-it” new build/project

Looks neat, very slightly smaller than mine (81cm square). Polycarbonate sides and roofing shouldn't be too hard.
