    I experimented with the GA250, and it's not completely suitable - you need one you can set gain control granularly on for it to work in a combat robot scenario.

    They are only really that useful to...

    A long, long list:

    The drive

    It's way too fast, even rate limited to 40% as it was at 'dojo
    The ground clearance is dreadful, which is why I got beached against Telekinesis and the fight...

    Well, I've not kept this up to date at all, as it's finished, competed at Robodojo, and now being redesigned for mk.2 :)

    Here's a playlist of how it did at Robodojo Round 4, July 2019:...

    I haven’t been keeping this up to date with progress. Progress is, it’s pretty much finished and ready to run!

    There’s a few 3D printed bits and bobs used to hold links and internal bits, etc,...

    Progress is being made, but still plenty to do! The pulleys are off being machined, so meanwhile it's propped together with 3D printed PLA prototypes, which I printed to check fit and dimensions.

    I did some video tutorials on flashing RedBricks with SimonK some time ago. Maybe these will help?

    Limited progress today, as still waiting for parts after the Christmas break.

    I did however get the drive bolted together and the arm gearbox partially done for a bit of testing:

    Barróg was exceptional for a first featherweight bot! With this new iteration, it seems you are building on what already worked and improving what didn't, whilst keeping the character and distinction...

    Today's progress: bolted the chassis together, and checked everything for fit. Still a long list of things to do, including wedding the wedge parts together, turning down and weight saving the gear...
  13. Team Darklight - Something Completely Different (Beetleweight Meltybrain); Retro

    Despite having run Something Completely Different (SCD) at four Beetleweight events in 2018, I never did write up a build diary for it. Given it's 'retired', it makes sense to do a bit of a write up...
  14. Team Darklight - Sawcerer (Featherweight overhead saw)

    It seems that I've built one too many Featherweights over the last two years I've been building; now in to build number four, and this time, something that's not an axe, but something that's going to...

    Post Extreme Robots Cheltenham

    The Cheltenham event was really good fun, and was a high for Broadax 2, followed by a low.

    So in melee 1 of the Saturday session, Broadax 2 was declared the...

    Preparing for Extreme Robots Cheltenham

    8529

    Many, many tweaks, changes and updates have been made to make it (hopefully) perform better than it did at KOB UK.

    I echo what others have said - if you get the remaining minor issues ironed out, Strix will be a fine machine! I don't think it will take much work either.

    I never got to fight it so you have to...

    I have made two axes bots with chains and one with spurs, and I'll say that there's no right or wrong solution - each has advantages and drawbacks. You do have to be more precise with spur gearing...

    If it were me I would keep it as simple as you can.

    With most transmitters you can set an exponential curve that means the slightest twitch on the channel puts it at 100% throttle / throw. You...

    These were CAD designed by me but I didn't print or make them myself, I got them water jet cut as part of a larger parts order.

    I will be making a V2 hub for these that will be 3d printed, that...

    I use an older revision of that one in Broadax 2 (same thing just with longer aerials). It does failsafe all channels if the failsafe process is followed correctly.

    I would grab a LemonRX receiver for DSMX use with the DX6i transmitter. Many roboteers use these and they have a very simple setup for failsafe

    I thought about this when I built previous robots. I think simplicity is the key, the less there is to go wrong the better generally!

    There's a few ways to do this, for me, the clutch is literally on the transmitter control in that I pull it to stall either direction, and it has rubber stops either end of the travel. If I were to...
