    Glad you had a good time! I really should have come over and see if I could have helped with the twitchy controls, it reminded me of The Honey Badger 2.x as to how quickly it was going (side note: I...

    I wasn't around for the scrap pile. It isn't a big deal, I have one I can rob from another robot, just a pain. TBH, I'll probably treat myself to a new TX later on in the year.

    The same thing as the first one. It wasn't so much pop as mechanical interference. Where the Axe ESC is, the motor and mechanism is right above it and it is only 100mm tall. When in place, the "680"...
