    Oh yes, hello! :D I think it is worth making a prototype of this with some old SLA batteries or something with a load and measure the voltage at each take off to see what happens. You could put in...

    Effectively, yes. A wire is attached to each end of the fuse holder and the fuse acts as a bridge.

    I run my heavier class robots with their batteries in series to up the voltage. These are matching pairs of voltages and capacities so I end up adding in just the one fuse, treating them as a single...

    I get my 80A fuses from Halfords usually. They are wired inline from the battery. Here is one I made for a MW but the same rules apply for a FW. The fuse is in the maxi fuse holder at the top right...

    Aye, just one of those things. Short of a miracle happening, I am not expecting to run an event now until next year. By then... BotFest might have a completely new arena. ;)

    I thought you meant on the receiver? The RC bits I have already have a JST-SH plug on them normally, it'd just push on and then some electrical tape over the wire, plug and RX to hold it in place.

    I use the pins that come on the receiver and put electrical tape around that and the board to keep it in. Have come a cropper with RC wires coming out before.
