    Just thought I would let you know Mute has a new web address and weve finally got round to updating it.

    New link is http://www.team-mute.co.ukwww.team-mute.co.uk

    Theres some new pictures of Mute, Micro Mute and Micro Mute 2 and some videos of Mute doing what it does best.

    Any feedback would be appreciated as were still working on it with some more updates

    Regards
    Adam

    haha you know you're doing it right when the drive motors are bigger than the wheels!

    Will it use the hammer to self-right?

    Are the amp-flows from Robot Market Place etc and are they expensive?

    Yeah the hammer will be used to self, just need to test it to see what happens

    The motors are from Robot Market Place, not much choice really if you want a decent motor, the shipping etc is the worst thing

    I imagine they're really heavy!

    Are these motors the rebranded Mag Motors that La Machine et al used to use back in the day?

    Correct me if I am wrong but I believe these are the motors in question...

    Mag Motors still exist. These are very similar, so far as I know, in weight and power output. They weigh 3.12Kg or 6.9lbs each, so not very much at all given a pair can shift more than 100kg at speed!

    Erm they are not really gear boxes, we mount one gear on the wheel and one on the motor and run the wheel on a fixed shaft.
    We got the gears from HPC Gears, but I've seen Technobots do gears as well.

    Bonk is ready for the weekend, we've added a new point head, we did a quick test as the video below shows and got a bit of bend on 3mm hardox. Got to test out the new drive wheels and rear omni wheels to see if it will drive and if we can manage to hit anything
