Re: Pneumatic antweight.

I would honestly do a crusher with a massive servo and possibly an external gear reduction. I think you'll do sweet begger all with pneumatics at this scale.

Some transmitters will have this as an option but having it on an esc is usually a good thing. Other wise it's one channel for eac...
