Re: Building an arena question

That's it Peter! Your arena is awesome! I know I have that thread saved where you detailed your build. I was really impressed with the quality of your work and sinking in the screws and fasteners into the lexan in the sides.

Re: Devo 7e

Interesting that there are issues with Win10. I use linux (Mint Sylvia), and didn't run into any problems that couldn't be fixed by a simple google. Glad you got it sorted! Maybe not. I'm pretty sure that it's a thing. I root my Samsung phones and that process is starting to fail with the newer mod...

Re: What is a team?

A note with clusters: The Team that operates the Cluster must own all the transmitters that are used for driving the cluster. You can get a driver from another team to drive your other cluster part(s), but they'd need to use your transmitter. Thank you. This information is very helpful. I'm going t...

Re: What is a team?

i suppose its down to whatever you got used to when you first built a robot... i actually started with a pistol grip tx with a simple push button to activate 3rd channel... needed to make the switch to a stick tx so i had more options and found driving on the left with weapons on the right to suit ...

Re: Building an arena question

Thank you! I really appreciate the suggestions! I think I sew that Chris hasn't posted here since 2017? So I didn't try to send him a PM. Yeah, I'm not too concerned about the price. Obviously I don't want to go crazy, so I can save money to spend on robot components, but I don't mind making a signi...
