    Well it came back in one piece but a very unwell robot. First fight was between Kaizen, Backflip and Gaston and it did OK but ended up getting beached on Backflip's front flipper and we both ended...

    Great to see you as well, glad I was able to help out with your robot during the Euro championship! Hopefully we'll have another match soon with a rebuilt Shu!.

    To answer your questions directly: 1. Ish. My axe motor does this on my middleweight I think but not by very much. I would prefer the pinion gear to be wholly on the axe motor itself since I don't...

    The receiver was the issue - replaced that and now it all works, barring a slight mishap with the transmitter having mixing enabled at the same time as the ESC but it is back together. The axe has...

    Axes are really fun, especially in featherweights. But your plan for the shed is really smart; never test a robot in the same room you're in. We've had a few incidents here and there of people...

    I can see where you are coming from. Because of the lower weight classes and the smaller overall size, I sometimes get the impression that folks don't take account how dangerous these things can...

    The strange thing about this sport is that the lower weight classes are arguably much more dangerous than the large ones due to how much power they still have at there size. Yes, people have built...

    The robot is back together but a slight wiring mishap means 3 of the wheels are turning the right way, 1 isn't. Also, the mystery fault with the axe persists. It has to be a receiver fault, works...

    Basically what he said. A spinner is a very bad choice for a beginner to combat robots, moreso someone with no engineering experience. I've been doing this for nearly 2 years now, and still haven't ...

    Hey there, welcome to the forum! Specs look OK to me, perhaps a bit of a query on the drive motors as to wherever they'll have enough oomph to move this but otherwise looks fine. I will have to...
