Re: T_Y's Build Log

Can confirm the power hungry nature of the servos - I managed to over-discharge a battery while testing. Very powerful though.

Re: T_Y's Build Log

It seems like there are some wiring issues with Error 404. Because I don't have a huge amount of free time between now and AWS, I've made the decision to replace it with HYTTIOAOA for AWS 60 (I'll still bring it along though). So, here is the competing team, PM2 and HYTTIOAOA V3. https://i.imgur.com...

Speed holes are a good way to lose those last few grams - I've done that on just the base plates of some of my bots and saved a couple of grams there.

Solderburn's looking good!

Another thing I found out is that the titanium I have doesn't seem to like sharp 90 degree bends (or at least, the way I was bending it), and was shearing along the fold. So I'm going to sti...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

I haven't had the chance to wire it all up yet. I should have time to do that this weekend. I'm planning on having translation on the right stick (ELE for forwards/backwards, AIL for left/right) and use RUD for turning. I've worked out how the wheels should turn with either left stick or right stick...
