    The ESC and its firmware used with Brushless make so much of a difference, that its very hard to give standard rules or values to how much power you will get out of a system. The reason the ESC's are...

    Welcome to the sport!

    Given this rather reminds me of my first build and parts choices I figured I'd weigh in here. I'm going to try and not go too in depth, but rather than simply telling you, I...
  4. Ranglebox Neptune and Saturn Gearboxes

    Wanting to find a pair of each gearbox. I'm also interested in damaged ones; bent shafts de-threaded face plates etc, which I can use to keep the others going in a worst case scenario.

    Its up to you, but I believe the consensus these days is 'Buy once, buy right'. You are better off buying a decent pair of controllers which you can reuse and transfer into future machines than tying...

    Its reached the point where you can't stop the spinners from cutting through your armour or bending your whole robot out of shape. The way forward now IMO is shock mounting your armour to lower the...

    We were at 80A, 12S, 80'000 ERPM on the MVESC's. I think the weight makes a difference (60kg not 110 as mentioned before), and the quality of the Scorpions could play a factor too. I would be willing...

    These are the modified VESC's designed by Rory Mangles of Team Nuts; uprated FETs, Caps and a variety of other tweaks that I can't remember. We are also only driving around 60Kg max on hours which...

    You could put most Beetles on an A4 piece of paper and they wouldn't go outside that area. There are obviously exceptions but they are around that size while being about 50mm tall, or greater...

    The weight of the axe head does play a factor. However a heaver head is harder to swing, takes longer to accelerate, will have a lower top speed, and caused the robot to jump more when compared to a...

    The Scooter motor is the standard 'go to' for a simple FW axe, 300-350W normally, and 500W if you are crazy. They are large and heavy but produce a lot of torque for very little power.

    Gary is very much correct about full body spinners, they are very difficult to build I'm afraid and are extremely dangerous to boot. However if you take your time you may well be able to come up with...

    I can guarantee most teams will not have calculated the MOI or inertia of their weapons. Most teams just ball-park their system against previous known setups, both ones that worked and didn't.
