    I would just use the tracks from a zumo chassis. it's already overweight without any electronics. as far as I know, the maker of the zumo chassis sells the micro gear motors, but you'd need the ones...

    Thanks so much, I found some reverse thread chuck screws on eBay too for about a fiver. The motors I bought seem to be a pair of B&Q drills, a wickes one and another unknown make, two of the chuck...

    Okay, I've found an excuse to bother people with my robot building without coming off as annoying (sorry). Welcome to my build diary! After nearly a year of brainstorming ideas and nothing happening,...

    I mean for maintenance. if I lose one ESC (let's say botbitz 30A) then I can swap it out for another (an extra £30) but if I lose a dual ESC, replacing it will cost £60. in any case, I'm still...

    The Feather2 seems brilliant value, its just the risk of it being one controller for all motors. I guess mounting it in the middle around a ton of foam would be fine. How were the quicruns? did they...

    I'll be messaging Rory at some point to enquire about them. I remember a post by him ages ago saying it can run in 4WD, or that could be his beetleweight controller instead. In any case, I'll be...

    I would, but I'm not sure they can run four 550S motors. It only says 2 in the doc. I'm going to buy 2 of those cheap eBay ones just for testing. They're £10 each so not too much of a loss. After, I...

    They will know which side it is usually, the issue is: if the link is on the bottom, how would they remove it?. They put it on both sides, so it can be accessed if its on either side. Most flippers,...

    Would they work for testing, though? To be honest, I just want a pair of speed controllers that drive the motors for now, I don't think I'll be able to make any events for another 6 months to a year...

    So, building is underway now (I sanded down two edges on a shell I bought from Harry) on my new featherweight. I have motors sorted out, and a battery in mind (Ni-MH. Not LiPo just yet). The only...
