Thread: A Beginners Guide to Vapourbots

  1. #21
    Team Riobotz have recently release a high quality tutorial for building robots, it covers nearly everything you will ever need to know about building a combat robot. I've decided to post it here as it has a lot of information that could help people improve their vapourbot designs and improves stats in whole.

    It's a large PDF file, with 300+ pages, but definitely a good read. I highly recommend it, as well as the Paul Hills Website

    Sheesh, Aaron, you're gonna scare all the newcomers away.

    Since posting the motors table it's been revised quite a bit, redone with the help of Leo and Kody among others, and as a result actual sort-of-scientific calculations have been used and it should be more accurate now.

    I'll add other stuff to it in the near future, like a proper writeup of my little battery guide thing and possibly some more featherweight sized motors for the table, but the problems should be sorted now.

    Problem is there isn't a hell of a lot of combat ready brushless motors out there. You either have industrial stuff that is massively heavy with conservative power ratings or model hobby stuff with lightweight with overrated power ratings.

    When you start talking custom brushless there is much to debate about figures and ratings too
