  1. Re: Sponsor a building. Move a city. Help MechWarfare.

    But bullet holes make them more badass, right?

    Has anyone chronographed their mech's guns? They aren't supposed to be super powerful to avoid damage to the scoring system anyway.

  2. Re: Sponsor a building. Move a city. Help MechWarfare.

    Yeah, that sounds cool. Billboards could also be an idea. Maybe for when space on the building face runs out, or maybe as a cheaper option. It would be totally cool if you could commission a whole...
  3. Re: Sponsor a building. Move a city. Help MechWarfare.

    Are we talking billboards on the buildings, or the whole building itself?
  4. Re: Hi from Florida! Does the airsoft beginner league still exist?

    Most competitors have used Xbee for control, and wifi web/IP cameras for video so far. Xbee is still standard for control, but it seems video is switching to 5.8ghz FPV setups.

    There's a good...

    Re: Let's talk 5.8ghz FPV camera setups

    This unit is pretty darn pricey, but it at least appears to be extremely small and high quality. I think I'm going to use it for my mech.

    I'm pretty sure dropping things that interfere with a contestant's mech is against the rules. :tongue:

    Re: Android and bluetooth control questions/ideas

    Yes, the Asus TF700T I will be using has a USB 2.0 port and Host Controller drivers. I've found a handful of apps that are supposed to use FTDI to communicate with serial devices, but so far none of...

    Sticky: Re: Participant Geographic Locations

    I know I'm over a month late on this one, but if this is still a running project put me in as In Progress in Reston, Virginia. It's good to see there are a few competitors on the east coast within...

    Re: Android and bluetooth control questions/ideas

    I got the Xbee starter kit and a shield for my little prototype Spider. I was impressed at how easy it was to get working. It's basically plug and play. I was also surprised by how much juice it...
  11. Re: Why does Trossen not have a nice mech warefare gun product on the market I can buy?

    Perhaps a kit with a super cheap "defender" style gun, a solid state driver, some basic mounting hardware and instructions on how to put it together? It appears that hacking a cheapo gun from...

    So for competition we won't need our own receiver, just the transmitter on our robot? The receiver would be necessary for testing of course, but it wouldn't need to travel to Chicago then. I'm coning...

    Android and bluetooth control questions/ideas

    Hello all! New builder here, and I've got some ideas I'd like to flesh out. Has anyone tried to control their robot with an Android tablet/phone or iPad? I've searched the forums and the only...
