Ahhh, :shock: will bear that in mind! lol. I dont think it looks to be easy to upgrade the wires on them ....
... where are my 7A ESCs Hobbyking?! Eh? :cry:

Doing some test 3D prints in PLA for the beetleweight frame. Have to make sure it all holds together and works, parts all fit inside etc. :D

Quite pleased with the finish and the dual extrusion support material works well

Got one of Mark's ESC receivers. The two PWM outputs are perfect for the two weapon motors on Kinetic Disassembly - so im now having a nightmare trying to wire this bot up and finish it :D .. i never leave enough room for wires. I need to start CADding wires into my designs..

Drive works but first weapon motor is dead. Tried all channels. Going to have to dewire it and test the parts on their own, since I cant seem to find any reason why it isnt working. :(

Was it making the beeping noises when you armed the robot?

Nope :? and no LEDs, which i thought there was on the 7A Turnigy esc. I checked the power wiring and it looked fine though. Cant remember if ESCs need a signal to come alive or not.
Damn, I suck at the electronics side of bots xD hope to get some time this weekend on it
