    Sprouting Potato V4 is signed up, with smaller wheels and a flipper. Hope I get to use the flipper before speeding into the pit. :)

    What that lot said ^^^ :)

    Especially the fight between Melon and Bodacious. I was gonna scrap Melon as a bad idea until that fight. I mean.. it's still a bad idea, but it was so much fun! :D

    You did seem a bit down. Apologies for not being more social, but my son and the whole competition thing overloads my brain, somewhat. I'll get used to it, someday. If I can just get my son...

    Thanks for the advice! I'll give 3S a try, then. It has the advantages of being unlikely to explode the motors, and also means I won't need to buy a new charger. :)

    With that in mind, I've done...

    The motors arrived on Saturday, so now I have a sense of scale. :)

    I've got a FlySky FS-iA6 tx (enormous!) that uses AFHDS, and I used it in one of my ants. It seems fine, and you can get a fairly small 4-channel rx for it.

    It has a small amount of telemetry,...

    I think the AW melon might be easier to finish than tweaking the other AWs, as it requires less printed parts. Just need to build an axe mechanism, and it'll be ready to go!

    Team BLEEP: Melon Axe/Clampy bot (BW)

    Hi all!

    So, for ages my plan has been to build an antweight melon-slice-shaped bot. I first tried a front flipper, but it didn't work out, then I decided an axe would probably be pretty cool. I...

    I would've used n&b wheels, but I only had four, and two of them are on Houmous. There's also the option of Lego wheels, but I'm not sure how to attach them. I didn't have the time to experiment.
