    I would only do this if there was something supporting the motor, you don't want the screwdrivers flying off and doing you any harm. I would look for a ball joint puller - normally for windscreen...

    There is a Starbucks just off Junction 5 of the M53 which we can do a pre-meet at. I can be there at 3.30pm, noting that I would need to shoot off at 4.30pm to get to the cafe to get the place setup...

    I couldn't find an exact match but TechnobotsOnline do seem to sell MFA motor mounts (https://www.technobotsonline.com/motor-and-gearmotor-brackets.html). You may find adapting one of these is the...

    Are you planning to use the pulley itself? If not, I'd cut a slot into it down to the motor shaft with a Dremel or similar and then slide it off.

    Sounds about right, I can make St.Asaph in about 55 minutes if it is all clear, which it usually isn't on the A55. Give me a day or so to work out where we can meet beforehand. It'll very likely...

    Hmm? The meeting starts at 5pm... so you'd need to leave at 5 to get to work? As for pushing it back, I doubt I'll be able to. The cafe itself shuts to the public at 4pm and they need time to...

    I think the next thing to do is verify that all of the radio wires are soldered into the right pads on the ESC (they do look correct but without the wiring diagram, I can't be certain). In the video,...

    XT60's are overkill for Antweights. I would use the same type of plug as what is on the battery.

    Do you have a link to the hubs being used? I've got another lifting arm made that should hopefully negate spinners (hopefully) and a third one in progress specifically for the Nuts event. ;)

    Ah, I see now. When I was prototyping an axe mechanism, I was forever getting it wrong and eating cardboard linkages as result.

    That is a lot of linkages but even so, I can't see why it would burn out a motor unless it was out of sync...?
