    Ikari really is made of wood and polycarb. All of my ants feature using it in various levels. Azriel's conversion is going to be interesting, in theory. In practice, who knows? :p It should be fine.

    The type of fuse that can be used in the rules isn't limited, so long as it does the job of being a fuse. With that type, I would get some ring crimp connectors, crimp the connectors on both...

    Azriel I've decided to take the plunge to refit Azriel with brushless drive following a successful conversion I did a few months back. I was planning to refit the axe motor with a brushless motor as...

    Looks gorgeous so far, love the use of a single block of aluminum, Does it weigh significantly different compared to the last drum?

    One of the best ways to get a sense of what is used is to come to events and see the robots up close. I guess you might have done this with the VIP tickets for Extreme Robots and/or Robots Live but...

    Hahahahahaa, that we are Sam :D It is also worth bearing in mind the extra rules regarding LiPo batteries under section 7.8.* in the build rules though they are fairly common sense ones like...

    You work out the burst amperage of the battery and get a fuse below that amperage as per the rules: So in that particular batteries case, it is 4 amps * 120C = 480amps (240amps constant)....

    Looks like a neat lifter system, what is the MOD on the gears? As far as working to the limits, I try to think of it like this - if I don't test my robot at the extremes of its operation, it is...

    The thing is, as a one off, it is expensive, yes but you do end up reusing tools and components from one machine to the next as you go along. My Middleweight needs a new body but the parts from the...

    Hahhaa, that it is. I once totaled up how much my second version of The Honey Badger cost me. Close to about £400 but then again, I was things like a pricey transmitter at the time and such.

    Ah, I had missed it was a XT-90. You would need one of these - https://hobbyking.com/en_us/xt90-male-to-xt60-female-2pcs-bag.html - to make the connection.

    I would recommend sticking, for your first machine, with as similar spec as you can. Stick with 4S (which is the cell count in series, meaning 14.8v) if that is what the various components in your...

    The difference between the 80W and 50W versions appear only to be that the 80W supports a higher charge rate looking at the specs. Either would do for a Featherweight.

    I've accidentally done this from time to time. The charger defaults to LiPo but I use LiFe batteries and I can confirm it isn't smart enough to know what battery type it is connected to (and I am not...
