    Glad you had a good time! I really should have come over and see if I could have helped with the twitchy controls, it reminded me of The Honey Badger 2.x as to how quickly it was going (side note: I...

    The gearing for the Scythe wasn't meant to be as high as it is. I was originally meant to have a 19T pinion gear but it turned out that the engineers couldn't get one so offered me a 18T or a 20T....

    So I've had a look at Jibril and I am going to tentatively say yes, it will be at EXR Guildford. The radio receiver is stone dead, killed most likely due to either a overdraw when the radio wire...

    I wasn't around for the scrap pile. It isn't a big deal, I have one I can rob from another robot, just a pain. TBH, I'll probably treat myself to a new TX later on in the year. Yeah, the damage...

    Nice write up and was glad to finally meet you and Ensign Wedgeley Crusher in real life at RoboDojo. Was it my imagination that it seemed to move with a all or nothing affair? It seemed to be wheel...

    EXR Portsmouth 2019 After getting up at 3am to get down to EXR Portsmouth with Voodoo 2 and Jibril, there was a fair bit to do. The speed controller needed repositioning, the axe mechanism needed...

    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.
