That is an exceptionally creative hack. Well done.

I like it a lot.

Is it a small ESC?
Approx 26x24 mm. This is slightly bigger than the Dasmikro, but mine has one more channel (3 channels instead of 2)

Re: Little help requested with a new bot - receiver, material sourcing etc. thanks.

Yes - as Eddie and George already mentioned - the single-wire bus interfaces that drones RXs use, are NOT compatible with most of the speed controllers used in Antweights. In particular, if you want to run more than one ESC (e.g. one for a spinning weapon, and another for the drive), there probably ...

Re: jes's build log

I also use a 3d printed shell to hold drive and weapon motors and for the most part ...

Kyro: Nobody told me which side is supposed to drive, so I put the throttle on the left and steering on the right (+ weapon on the right too), on all my robots / controllers. I realise this is an unconventional setup. The configuration was just copied from the "mode 2" quads which have the throttle ...

Excellent, my decision to build an Axe bot is vindicated, as Axes seem to fair worse than "nothing" :)
