    Can someone please tell me how I would control two or more escs on a channel?

    I want to build a 4 wheel drive using a motor for each wheel, so controlling two pairs of the TZ85's - one per wheel.

    Failing that then how many feather sized motors could I run from one esc? That's how I currently do it but on ants and beetles etc.

    Thanks

    You can use a Y lead, usually about £2 from model shops or ebay

    Just connect the RC input into the y leads and the other end into the RC receiver.
    you should be able to power 2 motors from one ESC? I wouldn't have thought that would max out the ESC at stall.

    If it's a feather you're going for, one TZ85 should be enough to run two drill motors, I know a few people who have done that.

    With 12V drill-motors/gearboxes running on 3 or 4S it's even possible to do 3 on 1 Tz85.
    But to avoid "problems," fuse each motor with 30A.

    Thanks all,
    I`ve currently wired it to have two motors per esc, on 5s.
    I still need to fit tyres so at the minute its just wheel spinning like crazy which is good fun.
