    Having used those motors for a couple of years in Hatchet, I can tell you the magnets like to detach themselves. It’s worth epoxying them in given the amount of shock you’ll be putting through the motor.

    Robots looking great too, very Hatchet-esque

    This a photo of the new motor. It is the same type from the same seller but must be a new version as it has this plastic retaining rings which would mean if one magnet moved they would all move which would be more likely as they are not glued. I remedied this and also glued the plastic mount in place as well to make sure.

    Well By Jove I would say it is complete!

    Well i will need to countersink 18 bolt holes but that should be it.

    The only worry is that of battery power.



    as you see it was run right down after driving around and using the hammer worn it right down but this was after spending 5-10 minates the other day just using the hammer to entertain my nephew and his friends so I simply do not know. One plan is to buy a Optipower 6s 2700 which boosts volts and power.


    As a slight dower my original RX the antenna have snapped off, i have tried to re solder them back on but they broke off. it there a way to fix them or just chuck it ?

    Looks pretty tough, looking forwards to seeing it in action.

    I would have thought soldering it was an option... might be too brittle though. Wonder if it is possible just to replace the antenna?

    After seeing what happed to the first Honey Badge at Granthem I was gonna try my best to build it like a tank.

    on the RX I do have some 26AWG wire which I could try.
