Re: Ellis's (Team BANANAPHONE/A12) build log!

I'd recommend just having a non-spinner. For ants, spinners are a way to have a very specific type of fun that has nothing to do with success (says a guy who currently operates 0 spinners). Solderburn's BEYBLADE special move is exactly what I'd want from my spinners :lol: Also for what it's worth, I...

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

Also more power is NOT needed for a pusher. N20s are overkill - wheels lose traction before the weakest N20 loses power. N10s are smaller and lighter, and from my understanding STILL overkill, so yeah. I'm waiting on a load to arrive to play with

Bangor in Wales :lol:
Easy mistake to make - there's an Irish Bangor too I believe. To be fair though, there are a lot of UK place-names that the states shamelessly stole :p

Re: After the esc, the other stuff - simplistic questions

We talked about using the boards from 360 degree servos as escs for drive. For a flipper weapon, you don't want continuous rotation. And yeah, n20s are all pretty much the same (except polulu HP n20s)
