Thread: Melty Brain

  1. #1
    Has anyone built a HW melty brain or in fact anyone with a FW in the U.K. that works? I'm going to buy the kit to have a play around and see what RPM it can function at, I think some of the IMU mem devices are even better now. Also the brushless rotax 50cc and bog standard controllers suit the uni-directional constraints

    I believe Team Nuts use melty brain tech in Nuts 2, so you might want to ask them.

    I experimented using the open source melty brain website to make a featherweight a while back. I got it to the stage of being able to move around but university exams took over and I didn't have time to fine tune the logic on the test platform before installing it in a chassis.

    That looks good, like the transition from 2wd to melty as well.

    Are you also running the Orangutan B-328 and ADXL193?

    We looked at open melt but decided it wasn't really suitable for what we needed, so we made a custom PCB with all the required parts on one board, and Gareth wrote all the code from scratch.

    Is there a minimum rotation speed for a Melty brain?

    I'm not sure if it counts but http://www.fightingrobots.co.uk/thre...brain-spinners knightrous mentions a 2 wheel melty being capable of 100rpm translation, a single wheel however appears to need to spin faster
    Team Pushover - Definitely worse at this than you are!
