I've been pretty busy lately but I've had some time to squeeze in work on robotics between massive amounts of school work and real world responsibilities.
I wired up Butcher late one night. This connector turns my 2 2s packs into a 4s pack. Well at least it was supposed to. I used the female connectors when they need to be male ones to connect to the batteries. This is probably why you should never solder things after midnight.
I got the discs back from the machine shop and they look great. The wiring is mostly done. So as it sits right now it weighs 11lb without the weapon shaft, end caps, and bearings. Hopefully I'll have enough weight left over for some wheel guards. At least that's what the CAD tells me.
My name is Michael Connerton. I am currently a mechanical engineering masters student at Case Western Reserve University. This website is a blog of my exploits into the world of combat robotics.
