    Hahaaaa, thanks! Didn't really fancy being rammed into with the metal arms sticking out of it. Sounds promising. I need to read on the specs of the RageBridge but I need it running 8S LiFe...

    Hey there! I still use Gimsons in my Featherweights, solid reliable units. You can get a 13.7:1 motor and gearbox for about £50 per side (though the last time I looked on the Gimson site was a...

    Following on from the last post, I've been busy. Tada! I'll be running out tomorrow to get some M10x100mm bolts or something to screw the motor mounts down with along with some coarse...
