Cheers, Steve, I don't have a 3D printer (yet) but I think that's a great thing to do. I think it'd be awesome to have a collection of chassis (and other parts, like wheels) designs freely available for people to modify and try to improve.

I like how you've split the store into the weight classes as well. I note the new antweight switch - are you looking to stock switches for the other weight classes? Antweight seems easier to get away with a slideswitch, but the options for the heavier classes seem limited.

We were stocking the Finger Tech switches that are awesome and can handle enough current for feathers but still be small enough for beetles. Hopefully will have these back in stock shortly. I also have a bunch of 1000rpms motor for beetles that I will be putting up soon and am still working on the wifi Rx stuff.

For botbitz I think after 4yrs we are starting to become a bit obsolete with the hacked ESCs. Few people are doing their own plus China has moved on. So hoping to push the Aus competitions and look at a few new products. Moving to class categories is a first step towards other things.

a little off topic but through work i have access to ceiling mount lifting hoists, if this stuff can help with the arena or anything lemme know.

Including powered hoists where you have powered forward and backwards movement in the track.

Was daydreaming about building a powered dropdown claw (skilltester like) for amusement factor in the arena, Smile

Anyways thought id throw it in there, got a large container full of old ceiling mount hoists capable of lifting 200-300 kg which with some minor TLC could get working (gears and motor still work).

Unfortunately as we are moving around to different venues all the time I dont know if it would be something we could actually use.

Hi Guys,

I am closing up for 1-3 months while I redo some of our products, the code base, website and try and get back on top of things post BB.

If anyone needs stuff for Vivid let me know ASAP as I am going to do one last order before shutting down website.
