Re: Hello, World! - A Newbie's First Robot

I've got the cut-outs done for the wheels now. I used copious amounts of masking tape to put the armour together in the shape of the final robot. https://i.imgur.com/yJmvQpH.jpg I've also test fitted some of the components inside. They fit! https://i.imgur.com/9i9TX4u.jpg The bonus here is the weigh...

Re: Hello, World! - A Newbie's First Robot

I've got the basic shapes cut out of the HDPE now, next step is to cut out the openings for the wheels. https://i.imgur.com/lK90G1m.jpg I also need to sand off the edges so they're flush, and angling the edges correctly. A friend was kind enough to 3D print the brackets for me, I should get them in ...

Re: Hello, World! - A Newbie's First Robot

I think the slim-wing can handle 7.4V https://hobbyking.com/en_us/corona-cs-239hv-analog-slim-wing-servo-metal-gear-4-6kg-13sec-22g.html The tgy-306g is a lot faster, but I'm not confident enough yet with my electronics skills that I wouldn't damage it and waste money! But it's definitely something ...

Re: York meet?!

Yeah, I'm a student there. The hackspace is a good shout- I've just had a look on their page, they've got a load of useful tools like 3D printers.

Re: Hello, World! - A Newbie's First Robot

I picked the slim wing partly because of its shape so it would fit into where I wanted, also because its specs seemed pretty decent for its price. For the hinge, I've got two brackets near the front which I'm using to screw the side to the bottom. I added a peg to each one which the hinge will pivot...

T_Y's Build Log

(Edit: thread title) Hello! So I've finally decided to get into combat robots, and I'm building one or two antweights aiming to go to the AWS at the end of June (conveniently after my exams!). My plan is to go for a front hinged flipper (Firestorm is one of my favourite heavyweights). The part list ...

Re: York meet?!

A York meet would be perfect for me! Though I'm just starting out in the hobby, so I don't have anything built yet. I don't think the University of York has a robotics society or similar, but I can ask around and see if there would be people interested in a York-based event- I know at least a few ot...
