    I thought that was how it worked, but I've taken the live feed from just faster the fuse/link and it behaves much better, there's still the occasion 1/2 turn of a wheel here and there, but plugged...

    Fixed gears for the drive. I've seen the setup on Satanix with speed 900 motors (and I think shakey's got a brushess setup for sale at the moment) and it works really well, nice and robust. Belts...

    So I've had some free time today to actually get the robot built. Thankfully, the uber simple design means that I am nearly done with the bodywork. Had a slight hiccup with the pillar drill in that...

    Well I would recommend reading through the build diaries on here to see how folks design and build their robots. Personally, I break out a pencil and paper and get scribbling before committing to...

    Welcome to the forum! As noted, if you have experience with model RC cars, the Beetleweight category is probably a good place to start. The speed controllers and such from RC cars will go in BWs...

    Hey, not a problem! I started in Ants too, currently working my way up through the weight classes. Most Ant events will follow the Robotwars101.org AWS ruleset (found here:...

    How small is smallish? Ants are very good for a starter, if a bit fiddly, and fairly inexpensive. I've recently started a Beetle, and that is similarly inexpensive but easier for bigger hands to work...

    Yeah, it's plugged straight into the NanoTwo servo/bind port, as the nano is ESC and RX combined I'm not sure whether a separate BEC for the servo would be possible... it would also eat into the...

    You don't need to use LiPo batteries, they're popular because of their power to weight ratio. I'm also pretty sure there's something called a 'Battle switch' for the heavies, I don't see why you...

    Looking forward to more events myself, and meeting some more of the cool people surrounding the spobby, I'm definitely going to try and make at least a couple of them.
