Re: Malenki-ESC open source Antweight ESC

This looks awesome, however I’m a little confused. Does this only work through a single signal wire?

All 3 Signal wires are through 1 wire??

Re: Possible escs ?

Yes these work fine.

You have to balance their heavy weight compared to other ESC which are much lighter but much more expensive.

You can desolder the large capacitor to save some weight.

Re: Team BLEEP build diary

I had a pretty fun battle vs Melon. Either your bot or the other axe bot got inside flipit and half cut the power cable which then kept shorting out the receiver. I’ve resoldered the entire robot to fix the problem. So someone’s axe worked!!!!

Re: Pink servo??

@Peter I think they will be very good for nanoweights.

@lima. They look amazing...The 10kg of torque could be a lie though, Chinese sellers have been known to lie...it is definitely worth a buy and do a test on them. Nice find.

Re: Pink servo??

Thank you for all the information, I’ve learnt a lot through reading it. I wish I’d started making robots years ago now, as I’ve not had to “discover” anything but use all the recommended parts instead...N20, polycarbonate and the pink servo. I’ve been searching for a new servo since February, I tho...

Re: Pink servo??

Why do people talk about the pink servo so much? When it seems there are plenty of alternatives that don’t seem to appear on this forum.

Re: Brushless motors

Spin up time drastically decreased with 300MaH battery. Can go half speed instantly now.

Thanks for the help.

Ah that’s the key detail I’ve been missing, 450... I was searching HV or HT...so been stuck for what to use since the pink servo disappeared off hobbyking.

Pink servo??

Stumbled across this on AliExpress while trying to find a replacement for the pink servo, which was discontinued apparently.

Re: Brushless motors

Thanks for the reply, makes a lot more sense now. Yes you are right my battery and esc set up is wrong. I have Sunnysky X2204S motor, This SimonK esc https://banggood.app.link/xRhf4YqMUU and a 180MaH 25c battery. I guess my issue is the undersized battery. I was in the process of hooking up a 300mah...

Brushless motors

Hello, I’ve found with the brushless motor I use that if I put the motor from zero to full throttle it will stall. Then I have to bring the throttle back to zero which will allow the motor to start again. However if I raise the throttle slowly it will get to full power but it will take anywhere up t...

Re: AgoBros team, new member on the platform

I asked this question in another thread. The sporting thing to do is fix it best you can. Replacing a full chassis is like using a brand new robot. If you’ve been smashed to pieces. You’ve most likely lost! I like to think of it like an F1 race. You can replace wheels, wings and front end but if you...
