    Aha, so your 4s is 2x 2s, so you'll take out one 2s, replace it with a 3s and then that makes a 5s... It's almost too simple! :P

    Looking great! Well done on using most of the mass budget. :D



    I may be missing something there, but what's that going with to make 5s? Presumably not the 4s, because that would make 7s? :p

    Nice going! What's the drivetrain made up of, the motors look like something a bit nicer than drills...

    More importantly, is it also going to be pink? :D

    Great stuff! Thanks for taking the time to write all this up. I'll have to try gluing some plans onto the raw material in future, hopefully that'll reduce levels of wonkiness a bit!

    I'd say the drill battery will be fine for testing, but ultimately I would say yeah, just get a lipo and put a fuse in.

    I think the original Haynes manual just uses one of the batteries, which should be fine for testing that it works and a bit of driving around. The battery itself might have some overcurrent...

    Has anyone tested any of them side-by-side? I was going to try measuring coil resistance on my supposed 10.8 V ones but it's too low on a normal meter, so I might try a 4-wire setup if someone with...
