  • To paraphrase Rudyard Kipling, “If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs … you know you have chosen to keep a safe distance from the Sparkfun aerial competition”. I really enjoyed last year’s event but was somewhat concerned about the safety of my family. It was a tough call but the right one, in my opinion.

  • That sounds pretty cool. Thanks for clarifying!

  • Is there an ETA for when full details will be announced and we can start designing our new bots?

  • I’m curious about the “dangerous obstacles” in the ground course… does this mean they will be actively trying to inflict damage on the competing robots?

  • Here’s a video of a robot I built this weekend using two of these motors powered by an L293D IC with a 9V battery: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hKtEQSAFKA. These motors worked out really well for this project.

No public wish lists :(
