    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...

    Jibril So yeah, this weekend didn't go to plan. Managed to get the drive templates made but in cutting the drive shafts, need to go outside to that really and it has been too wet to do so. Still, I...

    We'll see closer to the time. Had a bit of a setback here which means I can't work on it this weekend. It'll happen.

    Jibril The HDPE base panel has been drilled. Doing 32 holes three times over in 3, 8 and 10mm bits is nuts but there you are. Currently mocking up the motor mount bolt pattern on a 1mm sheet of...
