Re: Team Antiquarian build diary

Hi Stuart I really like the tapped 4mm polycarbonate, defiantly a robust method for making an antweight. It looks like the two holes are for a jumper/switch for the receiver BEC. If you were to cut the trace between the holes and solder a 2 pin jumper you could use this jumper to select if you want ...

I work with Ellis Ware who created pulsar, he may be interested in making a very accurate mini pulsar. Look him up on facebook or twitter.

Re: Cheap gear motors and Pololu wheels

I was searching for plastic spur gears and found these gears with a D slot built into them. I thought they were interesting: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/free-shipping-50pcs-diameter-7mm-3mm-D-hole-12-tooth-0-5-modulus-plastic-gear-motor/32336801479.html https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1hRkcHFXXXXX...

Receivers

Found two suppliers of really cheap RXs Hobbyking, really cheap. These require shorting two pins together to bind. Big solder pads so easy to solder. https://hobbyking.com/en_us/orangerx-r614xn-dsm2-dsmx-nano-indoor-diy-receiver-with-cppm-pwm-spektrum-jr-multirotor-quadcopter.html A little smaller a...

Re: A quick question about Brushless Motors, Feat. Spinner Design.

From my experience when the disc is up to speed it's less than 2mm of the tooth that engages. So your tooth needs to stick out at least that from the rest. If you are getting it made by someone else it's worth getting a couple of different designs made and try them out. Also it doesn't look like the...

Re: Das Mikro - £12 dual channel speed controller with mixing

Hey Rory I bought some of these RXs a couple of months ago, the 6ppm input is really nice to free up an IO pin. Not the best chip with no logic protection on those banggood boards, still on the look out for a nice H bridge for 2 cells. I have the A4950 in my first test board. I got it nice and small...

Re: Das Mikro - £12 dual channel speed controller with mixing

I have started playing with my own speedos as a little side project. Is someone with these boards able to read what the h bridges on these boards are?
