    Sounds as if the out of box motor timing is out for the motor potentially, what voltage is going to it? Given that there are 7 poles on the old 5060 version apparently...

    Ikari
    So the robot was moving and a nano servo arrived today for the clamper/crusher weapon. I got that in, a nice little hook made up and it actually looks "the business".

    Couple of updates.

    Ikari
    Spent the last day or so getting the bodywork done on Ikari 2.0 out of 1mm polycarbonate and now it actually looks rather nifty. Unfortunately, it was sitting at 110g and...

    Team Kaizen Build Diary

    Hey Everyone,

    New year, new starts and all that. 2018 was a busy old year for me for a whole host of reasons. Finally went into not one but two FRA championships and learned a heck of a lot in...

    Hey Everyone!

    After a bit of a wait (apologies :P), I am pleased to announce BotFest will be making a return for 2019!

    Following on from the pilot, we are sticking with the Church so this...

    The ESC you have listed is for a brushless motor whereas the motors you have linked to are both brushed motors. Whilst it is possible to program some brushess ESCs...

    I keep my LiFe batteries in LiPo bags even when inside the robot for added cushioning. Gotta have them if you are running LiPo batteries.

    I honestly don't think it'll be an issue. Whilst speed is nice, control is often better.

    650rpm on 4" wheels is OK, that is about 7.7mph. The Honey Badger 2.2 used 4.33 inch wheels with a motor/gearbox giving about 844rpm at 19.8v meaning about 11mph and if you watch some of the videos...

    Most ESCs are indeed Brushless but the SimonK stuff doesn't make it a brushed ESC (least, not to my knowledge and experience in using the SimonK firmware). The BotBitz ESCs do start off life as a...

    That ESC is a brushless ESC (there are three wires on the opposite side to the power wires) which won't work with a bushed motor such as a 775. You need to match the types (normally) when selecting a...

    Spinners are, by their very nature, dangerous. They are not something I'd recommend a beginner does since the potential for danger is fairly high if not suitably experienced. As others will tell you,...

    You have two mixes go on in the same TX? I did that once in my OrangeRX system I seem to recall which led to a lot of odd stuff going on.

    In the end, I only needed Elevon mixing enabled. I would...

    If you've enabled elevon mixing on the TX for forwards and backwards then it should just "work" for side to side motion. I have known instances where if the TX has mixing enabled and ESC has mixing...

    I have this problem with the XT90-S link on my Middleweight. If I don't push it all the way in, it lights up but then fails to move at all. A good reminder to check it when diagnosing a problem :P

    I second the use of a drill press. I just have one for holding a standard corded drill in, cost about £15 but worth every penny.
