    Looking real good. Expecting some real competitive matches at Maker Faire 2019.

    Numa V2 looks great. I'm excited in seeing it up close and in action.

    Re: Numa V2 - Quad Mech

    A while ago I was looking at my original Numa thread and wondering why I had so few updates leading up to Robogames. Well now I'm reminded. The list of things to do is never ending (well, I wrote it down and it's only a large sticky note...).

    Since last time... I fixed a lot of things. I now have a walking, turning robot, with controls that are at least as good as what I had with Numa or TwitchMX. I bumped the speed up... a lot. 6 ft in 12-12.5 seconds was my quick test result.

    The real time sinks have been (1) lots of minor code fixes and (2) making BB loading work. Given an extra month I would have done some more major refactoring, and probably just put the BB loading on the turret after all.

    Here's a video from yesterday!

    And testing this morning says my gun system is possibly very functional!

    Re: Numa V2 - Quad Mech

    My writeup of Numa2 over at hackaday.io is finally up!: https://hackaday.io/project/166096-n...-warfare-robot

    At Bay Area MakerFaire 2019, I believe Numa 2's record was L-W-W-L, and it was lots of fun! The R-Team crew hosted the best games I've seen yet. Major thanks to you guys for making this hobby a continued reality!

    By far my biggest issue at BAMF 2019 was that for some reason, the button presses for turning were not transmitting properly, presumably due to RF noise. I ended up spending my first match strafing almost the entire time. As a workaround, I wired a switch in parallel to one of the buttons, and then coded up a "mode" in software that turned the strafing joystick into a combination turning/curved walking joystick, which was... functional. This seems like something that will be hard to test and root-cause, so, TBD what I do for next time.
