Re: The smart ant's and flea's

yeah sorry about that... mantis had taken a beating against 2 spinners before we faced off... it usually grips really well regardless of holes but my sillicone pads were practically useless by the time we met so i think the holes did actually benefit me this time. i was worried about this fight as l...

Re: Pre modded servo boards for escs?

not a problem... for people that are happy to smash other peoples hard work into tiny pieces inside an arena, outside we are all friendly and helpful... weird huh?

Re: Pre modded servo boards for escs?

in the orientation it is in the pic, the first set of pins is for binding... the bottom row is where you want the black from the battery to go... where black currently is, is the signal...

Re: Pre modded servo boards for escs?

signal pin is usually the innermost pin (closest to the pcb) but this depends on which receiver you are using... the order it goes is yellow/white signal wire red positive and brown/black negative so the red wire from your battery will always be on the centre pin... if you can tell us what receiver ...

Re: Pre modded servo boards for escs?

battery into the receiver... if your receiver supports direct 2s then it will plug straight into the rx with no issues... if it don't support direct 2s then you would need a bec (battery eliminator circuit) to bring the voltage down to 5-6v the placement depends on your rx type... for mine (flysky) ...

i use these esc's or 2x 10a bustophedon in my ants... you are correct, the switch is to enable/disable mixing... as for overpowered... maybe... but its better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it... the H bridges are marked 7886 EK56DR the 16 pin chip is STC branded... really ...
