Re: Team Ions build diary

The km1203mdt is, as far as I know, just a different gearing. 6kg torque is still crazy high for an ant, and the faster speed means you can use a less aggressive linkage for the same flip. Personally I wouldn't bother swapping them out, but it's up to you. Getting sent the wrong thing is always anno...
