    The thinnest Hardox 450 I have worked with is 1/8" or 3.2mm. I heard about thinner stuff, but never had the pleasure to see it.

    We smoked more of the Blues in 2004-6 than I care for. Gets stale fast, those smokebombs. That stopped once we went Scorpion XXL Iliama version.

    maddox10 replied to a thread Esc Advice in Featherweights
    The el cheapo ESC's from Ebay (the Blue's), have a limited reverse, like 50%, and also do have a brake bias depending change of direction. Those combined with small differences in timing (even...

    As the Rory ESC, the IBF has a very extensive support. Reiner is very helpfull, a common trait if you ask me. Rory and Ian have demonstrated such in the past too.

    If 1 ESC blows during a fight, you're out whatsoever. Most RW specific "dual" ESC's have anb advantage if it comes to set them up and get the 2 motors working together to drive a straight line. ...

    The guy in the DIY store doesn't have the backgroundf knowledge. And a M10 is close to a 3/8 UNF. So yes, it looks like the standard 3/8unf.

    maddox10 replied to a thread CO2 regulator in Wanted
    Non, I went FP in all the machines. Also, there is an alternative that is lighter and a tad cheaper than an industrial regulator. But I never used that in a feather. But if you want my...

    I have to warn you that the more affordable*, industrial regulators can't handle liquid CO2. And that the standard brass/bronze construction makes them very heavy. * think +/- £80

    No idea how thick is thick enough. But if I find a way to form a 30mm shell in 1 piece, that will be an experiment worth the trouble.

    That weird Imperial nut is a 3/8 UNF, a rather normal US thread. Nothing Imperial to it. Yes, it uses inches and threads per inch, but the angle of the top ain't 55° , but 60° like the metric...

    The damaged armor was a welded monocoque , all well angled. In short, if you want to armor up against spinners, it will be heavy. That is why we still use HDPE for the feathers :) .

    The "old" EC5's "push ins" were good. The new "pull ins" not so. Even if they fit snuggly the first time, the construction of the male will lose the spring-tension very fast. Team RCC will...

    Hardox or simular kinds of steel are an affordable option. Cheaper than the less suitable stainless, and way stronger than mild steel. But with spinner power as it is now, we're looking at 8mm+...

    The windings could be different in wirethickness and turns per loop, but using the same armature/rotor. Now the simple math. A 36V 800W nominal motor will draw around 25A when operating at good...

    10mm HDPE will hold out most hammers and axes in the featherweight class. For heavies, 30mm ain't enough. If you go metal armor in the featherclass. The least I can advice is 3.2mm hardox 450, and...

    Aluminium box for the LiPo's. A bracket is a support that helps mounting annoying shapes.

    In Bullfrog, the ESC and LiPo's are shock mounted. The ESC directly on the case with an ali bracket, the LiPo's have an ali box to keep them where they should be.

    If a LiPo explodes in one of our machines during combat, it's a great show. But that seems to be rare, even if we all try to get the best results on the opponent.

    Forget the "cheap" options. In the short run, they will be more expensive, even if they can do the job halfassed. Better to save up a bit, and buy a good one to start with. We're using the IBF 4.5...
