    Never used them, so can't say. However, the blue Flightmax batteries I have good experiences with. Only had battery failure after genuinely flattening the LifePO4 batteries I use by over-exerting...

    This is a thing I keep on running into time and time again. The Honey Badger 2.2, Shu! and Kaizen used separate batteries to drive their weapons. However, it does mean more weight and more wiring to...

    Nah, that was the loser's melee where the drive packed up (and I was trapped by a disabled Audacious). I just got flipped 180 by the EXR flipper in the second Melee.

    A bit late updating this one. If you were at RL Grantham then you'll have seen The Honey Badger 3.0 very very briefly. In the end, the way the motors were mounted into the body were the let down...

    Yes, I assumed they would but in the same context, just because they are in a hard shell doesn't mean they wouldn't apply, that shell will probably be plastic and offer no fire resistance.

    I'd play it safe and assume that the same restrictions for Li-Po batteries apply to Li-Ion batteries as they are not specifically mentioned in the section which details the specific battery...

    Kaizen uses 4x 775 motors in it's drive system. From experience, I wouldn't recommend going past ~24v or so on them. I run them on 8S LiFe batteries (26.4v nominal) and, unsurprisingly, they'll cook...

    I've not experienced any difference in machining black and white HDPE on The Honey Badger.

    The motor and ESC look OK to me but it is important to note that the motor can technically run at a...

    Nothing wrong with the Middleweights, they've only just started coming back onto the scene in the UK (though I confess to being a little biased, my "big" robot is a Middleweight). I would have said...

    Yeah, the protocols need to match. I don't know about the AFHDS protocol and wherever there is any special requirements but in the case of the LemonRX, it would not work as that is a DSMX/DSM2...

    The transmitter looks fine to me (noting that the protocol is AFHDS rather than DSMX which is something to bear in mind if you were looking for a different receiver), seems to be within the rules and...

    Indeed, grab a VIP ticket so you can have a tour of the pits. It is worth the money. For what it is worth, my first iteration of my featherweight was 36cmx36cmx22cm (length x width x height). With a...

    Hey there, welcome to the forum!

    Personally, I'd make it wider. Having the motors go through a belt/chain drive when they've already gone through a planetary gearbox is a little redundant (in my...

    I do already :P 2x 4S1P 4200mAh LiFe batteries wired in series. The axe is a similar affair with 2x 3S1P 2100mAh LiFe batteries.

    What I meant was that I wasn't able to find 8S Outrunners that fit...

    So I've had time to examine and start mending the damage to Kaizen and the long and short of it is that the drivetrain needs overhauling. Gimsons, as a complete package, are lovely but the wheel hubs...

    For the small things, I tend to use the aluminium oxide grinding rotary bit (the pink stone), which is just coarse enough for steel (which I've used on The Honey Badger). For Titanium, I'd possibly...

    Ah, good point about the cradle. I have some old wood from a AW arena build that I can use for that. Yeah, in building my Middleweight, I figured that the 230+ bolts in it would contribute to the...
