    Yes, I believe your calculation to be correct. ;) I always put the fuse on the positive line as the first thing out from the battery. I use a 850mAh 4S battery and use a 30A (amber) automotive...

    The same thing as the first one. It wasn't so much pop as mechanical interference. Where the Axe ESC is, the motor and mechanism is right above it and it is only 100mm tall. When in place, the "680"...

    Ah it's fine, you'll see it do its thing from a video at EXR Portsmouth no doubt. Just got to hope the axe motor is strong enough to actually fire this thing.

    Yes, even if I wasn't competing, I am bringing another roboteer and his robot down for the day anyway. The replacement ESC has been shipped anyway so it might get here by Friday. Cue frantic wiring...

    Jibril So I went to RoboDojo this weekend with Jibril with mixed results. On the plus side, the extra castor at the front does seem to help with driving, Ian commented that it seems to drive...

    Is there going to be an e-mail going out confirming event times and so on? I've signed up with The Honey Badger and I've not seen any further information on this event.

    Many thanks Kane, I've tried quickly editing a post and the image popup. They both now seem to work, will try more fully later. And indeed, editing posts does seem to work now. :D

    The arena at Robots Live! cannot handle spinners of any description at the moment. Extreme Robots can but in the MW/HW categories, it is limited to 125mph. As far as HW spinner numbers go, I can...

    Neat write up, looking forwards to potentially seeing this at RoboDojo one day. Did you use a chain drive as a defined weak spot in the mechanism in case the stresses are too much and/or for...

    Many thanks! It still isn't "done" but it'll get there. Azriel will also be an axebot. I have the original axe mechanism from Kaizen which will be suitable. That being said, I may still make...
