BotBitz sorta formed after people complained that it was still too hard (or they wer...

Re: Maybe...

Thanks Sam and Haz! Dave, I am coming to Deeside, I'll talk to you there. For some reason I had it in my head that Baby Hell used a 100:1 on the axe :-? . A 50:1 motor would be more convenient for delivery too, as BotBitz don't sell a 100:1 option! The whole thing has been created to size with a Sa...

The UP Mini is a good little printer, this is what BotBitz are currently using to do their Antweight Kit

Re: DX5 fail

With the brushless esc's, you need to bind your TX to the RX with the throttle channel at it's lowest setting. This is because a fair few of the RX's failsafe to their initial settings when bound to the TX. So if you turn your TX off, the RX will default the throttle to center stick, which is basica...
