    As I've mentioned before, I've used the 13.7:1 planetary gearboxes with the 18V 775 motors that Gimson sell as a single unit to great effect on 6S though I'd say that was the upper limits of its...

    I've e-mailed the FRA to see if I can get a response.

    Comes down to driving skill in that instance one would think if the brick doesn't have any active weaponry and/or exploitable ground clearance in the case of wedges. Against spinners, depends on how...

    To try and answer your questions directly... I don't think you need the BEC in this instance but you will need to check the VEXs to see if they have a BEC in them (I think they do). You'd wire...

    I'd connect it up directly as this cuts down on weight and simplicity to save weight (it is what I did on Ikari) but I do know of at least one belt and pulley system in the AW class, which obviously...

    The Honey Badger I mooted a while ago about making The Honey Badger a Beetleweight. Annoyingly, the other Beetleweights I had planned won't be ready in time to go to Shrewsbury so I've decided to go...

    Ocracoke replied to a thread BOB FW Series in Build Diaries

    From a conversation I overheard at Ant Freeze 6, no. The problem is that the receiver used on the NanoTwo is not in stock at the moment. If you contact Rory on here, he might be able to shed some...

    If there isn't any smoke or any heat when the NanoTwo is on, I'd say you were OK. I've cooked my NanoTwo by having a servo plugged in the wrong way (Ikari) so bleh. With the fuse, I'd guess you'd be...
