    Yeah, don't cut the ground wire, you need that to reference the data signal. Also you don't have to cut them. There is a little flap you can pull up to remove the wire from the connector without...

    I've had people ask for some of the sketchup models I've made, and I'm going to post download links to them here, but I had the idea that maybe this thread could be just a general sharing thread for...

    Yeah I haven't had any LiPos explode on me yet, or even puff up. You're required to have a flameproof LiPo charge bag for competitions anyway, and as long as you get a decent balancer and charger to...

    ATTENTION guys headed to Manchester this weekend for Extreme Robots: I just checked my spam folder today, and found two emails from John (john@roamingrobots.co.uk) about the event in there. So check...

    If you're starting out with basic tools and a simple-ish featherweight design, £500 should easily get you a decent robot, that you could compete with. I know it can seem very overwhelming at first,...

    R9000 replied to a thread Speeding up motor in Featherweights
    Lengthening the arms will increase the tip speed, as would gearing the output shaft up. However you've got to remember, in either of these cases, you're trading torque for speed, and gearing systems...

    Yes, ideally you need to use one of the BEC wires you've removed as the positive for your LEDs. By ground, I mean any negative wire. It might be easiest to just connect it to one of the spare ground...

    Your ESCs should have a battery eliminator circuit built in. The red wire in your connectors (those three-pin cables with orange, red and brown) should be at about 5V. If you connect your LEDs to...

    Yes, those washers are to allow me to tighten the bolts without twisting the rubber up. Cheers for the compliments :) I can actually turn the lifter speed up, but I don't want to damage it. I might...

    Hahah, yes. Well it is shock-mounted. ;) I just hope the lifter arms and Linac hold up - I have plenty of spare shafts.

    Holy accordions, Batman, that's one folded microwave! Glad to see things are shaping up to some degree. I sure as heck do NOT want to get caught on the end of that crusher arm. Great work so far!

    Big capacitors between the battery leads are usually to prevent some kind of excessive change in current I believe, or to smooth input. The circuit might work without, but probably less reliably, or...
