Battle of Southbank,

Done some last minute work before this event. Pot Head was going to be underweight so I was thinking of doing a mini bot for him but wasn't sure if I'd have a driver for it. Th ...

I've had a weapon idea playing around in my head that would consist of a grinding disc with a ferrocerium rod feeding into it. Have this in some sort of dragon or unicorn head so that it vomits firey ...

Yeah my 4 motor drive bot would pull over 100A at peak, XT60's handle it fine. Just don't use low quality cables - I used 12G cable from supercheap and melted the wires before the connectors! 12G hobb ...
