Sorry, I meant to say that if you are using BotBitz ESCs to run your drive motors, they will have plenty of spare power (insert praise for the quality of BotBitz here) and you will be able to plug the servo into the Rx. I did this in Abaddon.

I normally cut off the mounting ears to save weight and space. My servos are typically attached with double sided tape.

I am about to change my user profile and might have my account frozen. I won't be ignoring you if I don't reply quickly.

Stig has come to the point where it needs an upgrade. The main problems are the high centre of gravity and the servo becoming unstuck.

Stig wheel stands under acceleration and goes up on one wheel during tight cornering. The other robots are getting better and better. The solution is to simply lower the centre of gravity.

The weapon servo is stuck to cutting board with double sided tape. This has come off at several events. It happened during the first fight on Saturday. I think the problem is the cutting board. The servos that are taped to polycarbonate stay in place.
