    3s are very common and cheaper use 2 in series it also means you can space out the batteries. Pre made Series leads are also cheap.

    Hooray! It's looking a bit vague at the moment but it sounded like pubs would potentially be allowed to do outside service by mid April, so if I can go and have a pint in a beer garden I would've...

    I know Harry was planning to host it at one point. Whether or not he's still interested IDK, I could always ask Dave what the score is if you want.

    Awesome! Hope we can finally have this! TBH I don't think we'd have an AWS so soon after lockdown is eased so you're probably good on that front.

    Hi, I'm working on a new project and need some 6S ideally 5Ah batteries. They do not need to be new but good working condition, will not be pulling a huge current. Anything safe, and cheaply...

    Hi guys. Thank you. CIM does look like a good option. I have never used gears as I am very new to this stuff so have a few questions that may seem silly. 1) Where do you actually buy them from?...

    I have indeed used CIM motors on the original Kaizen axe, Azriel 0.9's axe and still in Jibril's drive system. They are quite robust little motors but they aren't especially torquey. They do indeed...

    One option for an 11.1V system is a 'CIM' motor. They're rated at 5300rpm at 12V and not too expensive. The downside is that it would need gearing down, perhaps around 10:1, but that would be true of...

    You could potentially use a 12v scooter motor that will run at full capacity, but tend to be 150 watt or abouts. I used one in wanna choppy, an axe bot that was low in height so had to use a smaller...

    Thank you. We will be using a battery that is 11V and the motor you linked, and most of what I have seen on ebay, are 24V. Will they work on 11V or would that be too underpowered?

    Personally id just get another Rx just to test it. Worse case scenario its not the Rx and you now have a spare (they are relatively cheap anyway).
