    Extreme S.T.E.M - Jibril, The Honey Badger and Ikari The S.T.E.M event was interesting. Nice laid back atmosphere but it was getting a bit confusing over which fight was due when. Anyway, the main...

    Jibril does pull as well under low acceleration as well. Think Azriel does as well. I would try driving it on a piece of plywood or something to see what happens then. Uneven contact along the...

    For spinners, you want the higher capacity or you run the risk of overdrawing the battery or running out during the fight. Looks damn nice, can't wait to see it at the next event.

    I guess they were trying to make it more grungy for Series 3 at the time but with all the palaver with the production at the time, things had to change in Series 4.

    Jibril Despite the rain, I did manage to get a test drive done at a friends house. The drive is OK but once again, the Scythe failed. It fired but didn't complete a full rotation. I couldn't...

    Ocracoke replied to a thread Arena hazards? in Antweights
    Sounds intriguing, I'd like to see the sketch. The 50% drop off thing I thought only applied to arenas being used for AWS (it is one of the reasons why the BotFest one doesn't meet the criterion for...

    James Williams replied to a thread Arena hazards? in Antweights
    This sounds good, I especially like the quarter pipe side idea as I think it will suit more unorthodox designs. Regarding the 50% drop off rule I wouldn't worry about it. There was talk about...

    Jibril The drive is sorted, the Scythe gearbox is pretty much back together and the Scythe has been smoothed a bit to lighten it. With any luck, I might even get to test the robot before the event...

    Ocracoke replied to a thread Project Squirrel in Featherweights
    That depends on how able you are to use Fusion or a similar CAD program and wherever you are comfortable doing that. If you feel confident in using a CAD program to design your robot, cool but...

    Jibril I've fixed the drive issue with a M4 bolts so when a nut is applied on the end, no more drive issues in theory (new nuts were also fitted to the U Bolt to prevent it coming off again and...

    Should be. I am going to be doing this on my Middleweight as the M6 grub screw has fallen out during fights a few times. Ironically, the M5 grub screw on the other side has not fallen out once,...
