    Wouldn't this be better in the "wanted" section?

    Last time I checked, Botbitz 30As aren't even enough for most featherweight. In fact, 85As will only just be enough for wheelchair motors, let alone ampflows.

    Hi Colin. Unfortunately, I've already modified the motors and they aren't in the original formation, they didn't quite fit in the chassis with the chucks. The main issue at the moment is finding...

    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...

    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...

    Theo replied to a thread Esc Advice in Featherweights
    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,...
