Team Joker - Useful Links

Links that we think you might find useful ...
Link NOT currently working! - was a useful site which included rules, events and tips. If anyone knows where they are now please let us know. (Thanks to Roy Bryant, President of SEVENtwentyfour Inc who pointed out our original link to the site was no longer working)
The Wars site, not updated very often but gives news of events to be filmed.
Our speed controller is supplied by this company. They are not cheap but they work well.
R.S. Components: their information books and data sheets are almost essential reading and they provide a good service too but do not deal with the general public.
On the other hand, provide components for all.
A vast site which also deals with events to be televised.
The greatest site devoted to web site coding. We hand coded our site using this resource.
Provide a free, simple, web editing program NoteTab Light, based on Notepad but much enhanced.
Manufacturer of a wide range of geared electric motors.
Explains what to look for in a good speed controller and how they work.
The (new) site of KillerHurtz, a robot which has an axe. (Thanks to Roy Bryant, President of SEVENtwentyfour Inc who pointed out our original link to a Demon hosted site was not working)
Going big? Then look at this site.
Good site for general knowledge about robots.
We wanted to make a machine which operated safely such as Panick Attack.
We were disappointed at first that this robot looked so much like our first machine but then we were delighted that Tornado was so competitive. Perhaps our Joker will be as competitive, if not more so.
I took my Wife to Debenham Robot Rumble and she found it greatly entertaining.
This is "our" John's "daytime" job. Want to learn to drive and live in Ascot/Bracknell area - John is your man!
