    I thought the whole deal with the safety light was that it had to be connected over all the circuitry of your robot. Like if your Rx blows up but power is still flowing to other parts, it doesn't...

    Hackspace wasn't that great last time I went. They have very little in the way of decent machine tools, mostly it's a place for 3D printing and little electronics projects. Worth a look, but not...

    I can't imagine they'll discontinue the TZ85 with how popular it is. The site page is still up, I bet they're just waiting for another production run.

    Yep! This happened to me too (albeit before I put the limit switches in). That plastic acme nut that slides up and down the barrel is way too soft, and basically it shoots off the end of the screw,...

    I think they were 10k, but it doesn't matter hugely as long as they're decently high. It's just a doubled-up version of the board in this: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Button

    Also consider these. They're longer so you'll have more support for your wheel on radial loads. Also if you're melting them into a hub, I like to take a grinder with a slitting disk and just cut some...

    Paint job looks great. If you're getting it water cut via someone like kcut, you might as well ask them to bend it for you as well. It's cash money but it won't just snap like a weld can sometimes.

    Looks good to me. KV is about 300 higher than Aegis' motor, and power is more than double, so maybe half-expect to strip a gear or something? Just be very careful if you test it before you've added...
