    Found a bit of time to cut out the HDPE base plate to mount the components onto. I've managed to get hold of *a* speed controller so when that arrives, the thing should come together somewhat quickly though having read the events at the Euro Beetleweight championships, probably going to need to rethink the armour again (that always seems to be a failing of mine).

    Are you sure two micro metal gearmotors will be up to the job? Regardless, it looks great! By *A* speed controller, do you mean a sabretooth?

    Many thanks!

    I believe so, they have a fair amount of drag on them so I don't think I'll be worrying about torque on this one.

    I do indeed. I may have fluffed up over which one I am getting (a 5A dual) but I don't think the battery puts out that much anyway so... we'll see.

    The Sabretooth controller arrived today and I wasted no time in getting the bits together onto a board to see how it runs. The thing came together fairly rapidly as a proof of concept.

    Moves nicely, if not as quick as I thought it might do though it moves well enough I think.
