I use the LeTodar 2204 on both Vampire and RBMK. It's stupidly robust (5mm shaft!) and has a good selection of threaded holes to mount blades. It is a bit on the big/heavy side though - 28mm diameter, 20mm tall, 28g.

I like them because they're cheap (£7ish) and I still haven't managed to break one despite all the abuse.

Thanks, my old one weighed 30. The shaft size is the same. But I need to replace it for more torque. So, thanks I might change to them.

If you want more torque (I guess you mean on initial spin-up) you would almost certainly be better off looking at your esc and its settings, or possibly the battery - any decent sized brushless should have more than enough.

Just want to say, your robots are really neat, I love the aesthetics of them - particularly Valkyrie and RBMK. I don't think I've seen any other robot quite like this one!

Many thanks, I'm glad you like them. Personally I'd much rather build something different and interesting than just go all out for competitiveness.

George, can I ask what it is you use for chemical welding polycarb?

I use "EMA plastic weld" and find it works very well, apply it to both parts, then clamp them together for a few hours.

Be aware that the chemicals it contains (methylene chloride) are really VERY nasty, always use in a well ventilated area and wear gloves to avoid any skin contact.
