Re: Mix for smoother steering

If I'm using Tx mixing on the Spectrum, is there a way to make the steering less sensitive/twitchy without reducing straight line speed? not sure if its the case for the dx6i, but in the dx7s the 'Travel' for each channel can be changed. so when i find a robot has very sensitive steering i turn dow...

Re: The smart ant's and flea's

unfotunatly due to the virus in china affecting manufaturing, the NanoESC V1 will defintly not be ready before AWS61.

If any one has some experience of building a walker (my 1st go) advice , do's and don'ts would be very welcome! i'd say i'm qualifyed to answer this :D higher number of legs (i use 4 per side) spinning faster (i use 10:1 motors) on smaller step size (cam offset) makes for better smoother walking. k...

Re: ESC with built-in receiver - interesting?

Could you do that with yours or will it pull too many amps to have 3 N20 or 3 N10 motors on one channel? Is there a way to do that in an esc like this? I don't know exactly how much current n20s take most of the time add in that there are high and low power ones of varying quality. i'd say that if ...

New Website
www.robotmad.co.uk
check it out
I know it's still full of spelling mistakes.
when the NanoESC has been made and tested you will be able to buy them on that site.
I will avoid doing sales outside of this site as it traks stock automaticaly.

Re: ESC with built-in receiver - interesting?

I've found a number of the cheap Chinese ESCs (as well as some servo boards) are a bit 'all or nothing'; soon as you move the stick out of the dead band, the RMS voltage jumps straight up. In driving terms, you're either stationary or driving flat out. As i alredy use nealy the same set up as this ...
