    To cap this off until after Stevenage (at least), here is the run through video with a side by side comparison with the 1.0 version.

    And to add a third option into the mix, The Honey Badger doesn't use any mixing at all. I've got a transmitter that has has tank like controls on both sides (a bit like Panic Attack's original...

    The Honey Badger is 56cm long x 37cm wide so I wouldn't worry too much about the size. I'd probably stick with the actuator for moving the flipper as that means two points to distribute the...

    I might look at covering the top of the wheels with this design as it can't run inverted anyway as it stands (adds another structure point for the wheel guards as well) but other than that looks very...

    With it coming up to this event, will there be any Featherweight matches in this one or is this exclusively a Heavyweight event?

    And here we are. Built over 79 days from the 3rd of July till today in evenings/weekends, The Honey Badger is now rebuilt in its 2.0 form. Sure, it doesn't have a active weapon yet and there is still...

    Ocracoke replied to a thread Project Squirrel in Featherweights
    To address your questions directly: 1) I can't really answer this one, I don't use drill motors per se (I use a pair of Gimson motors with matching hubs). I might suggest either some threadlock...

    Side weapons are now in! Not having the right tools to hand meant this was a absolute faff to do but they are drilled out and the chisels in. They need attaching to the crossmember and swarfe...

    Ocracoke replied to a thread Project Squirrel in Featherweights
    I would think it was OK, it is what I've done with my LiFePO4 batteries (though I am open to being wrong here if that isn't a thing to do). I've screwed down the battery box to the chassis board and...

    The batteries and some of the wiring loom is now in a dedicated box (made from a old lunch box we had laying around) screwed down in the robot that I've put some material in help absorb some of the...

    That is fair enough... though why does the fuse rule only appear to apply to LiPo batteries? LiFePO4 batteries appear to not be subject to this requirement under rule 7.8. I would have thought it...

    Well the mounts arrived but I realised the night before that they are not required. I could just elongate the original holes in the original mounts to cause it to drop down a few millimetres. So the...

    Yes, that is what I mean though I don't see why not. Yes, it is another fuse to keep on top of but if it means one side continues to move whilst the other side is blown, I'd be happier with that than...

    It is interesting how much the upgrade list reads like the considerations and eventual implementation I did for The Honey Badger, certainly items 2, 3, 5 and 7. I wish you well on this one. ;)

    Thanks, I do understand that - I wasn't planning to have both batteries on charge when wired up in this manner (though having re-read my original post, it does look as if I was asking about charging...

    Hi Everyone! I've received a pair of 2SP1 30C LiFePO4 batteries for The Honey Badger. A single battery pack is 6.6v so the drive motor spins slower than that in the 12v 1.2ah SLA battery that was...
