    9mph should be quick enough. Keep in mind at live events you'll be thrown in with at least 15 other bots (sometimes more than twice that) so you there will always be an opponent less than 4 feet away.

    Hi Matt. You definitely need a lipo bag. Getting knocked about in battle can damage lipos internally & cause them to catch fire when they are recharged. I've competed at 5 live events this year &...

    Hey Eoin. Just wanna say Barrog did phenomenally well, especially for a relative newcomer & was definitely one of the bots I was rooting for. It was a shame that the one fight that DB12 beat you was...

    Brushless motor compatability

    Hey everybody.

    I know that brushless motors require brushless speed controllers but does the same apply for relay switches?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've never had any issues with it. To be honest when they check charging equipment they're usually more interested in checking you have an adequate lipo bag. Even if hypothetically they did have an...

    My lipo charger uses a PC power supply to power it. As long as the voltage rating for the power supply matches up with the chargers you should be fine.

    More than that, figured I may as well upgrade the drive entirely. Got some GR-EP-45 gearmotors from Gimson, should make Neophyte much faster.
