Are there other BattleBots fans out there?
Robot Videos / High school students in Ohio building competition battle robot
« Last post by gtabasso on April 18, 2016, 11:42:54 AM »
We're sponsoring Euclid High School as they build their battle bot. I bought them the tools, titanium for the body armor, got the machining donated for them and am rooting these kids on! They compete on Apr. 30 at the AWT RoboBots competition. I should have some new video of the completed robot being tested this week, but this was them showing off their weapon! Listen to that noise. It's ready to shred. Their controllers broke last week; so, we bought them new ones from Castle Creations Inc. Anyone buy controllers from them? I did not have a great experience with the company. I paid for overnight delivery ($70) and got the controllers two days later! Too late for the practice session we had scheduled.

Thankyou.  Never before have I seen such a divine first robot. Matrix is Art. Videos 10/10. Congratulations. You are most inspiring.

That you posted this eleven days ago now and not one other person has posted to say hello or thanks?   

Thanks both for the advice, that should make it easier at least. If I find a good source I'll post back for future reference.

 8)  AXON information:
The following are great sources of info;
- Atmel books, projects, and tutorials.
Raspberry PI info.

 ;D Hello!   ;D
I have found a great source of information about the Atmel processors, themselves. The path is;
They also have tutorial software to the processor itself. This should relieve some frustration about
programming, and the internal expectations of the MCU.
Mechanics and Construction / Re: Finding replacement screws for a RAD v1.0 robot

these look like standard thread forming screws for plastics with a pan head and philips drive. it is hard to tell the exact size from your picture without accurate pitch and diameter measurements. if i had to guess i say it might be a #6-16 in .375" and .500" lengths (it could also be a metric screw its hard to tell without accurate measurements)

honestly if you only need a couple i would just take apart some junk electronics, these type of screws are very common for plastic enclosures. just make sure the thread pitch, diameter, and length match up.

note these have a flat tip where wood screws are pointed, you probably wont find these at a hardware store so you would likely need to order a whole box of them.

 ;D Hello!
The screws look like wood screws, but the threading spacing is off. I recommend going online to: -- They are an outlet that has about every construction item you could dream of.
If you find that another type screw would work, and is more available, it might be a good idea to
replace the insert in the device, to accommodate the new screw. Good Luck!!!

 ;D Hello!
      I have found a neat website that was helpful for solving problems with the Raspberry Pi;
I am still working on my Axon, and with my Pi 2, to try to get them to work together.
The AvrFreaks Atmel Community website has a lot of help dedicated to the Axon type
processor, along with the other classes of Atmel processors. For those who are arduously working
trying to solve Pi/Axon problems, I hope this helps.   ;) :) :D ;D
