Is anyone willing to get some and ship it to the states? Rory won't :(

It costs me $90 for two fingertech tinyescs plus a separate orangerx and a capacitor to prevent brown-outs...at 4x the size and weight of these, not to mention all the wires x.x

I would love to get two picotwos, with capability of 1.5A per channel and an input for a weapon esc...

I'd like to chime in--I'd also love it if you could ship to the US. We're building a small arena and trying to get a regular group together, and it'd be great if we could get the nanoTwo here somehow...

Hi all, first post on here. I'm looking to make a couple of ant weights, as my son is now obsessed with robot wars and battle bots and keeps pestering me to build one. Not sure I have all the skills and knowledge (or money) to tackle a robot of that scale, so ants might be a good start and something we could do together ish!

Having not wired up a circuit board for a very long time, back at school, the nano two v2 kits would be just the job. Couple of questions, what servo would I need to use for a flipper? Also would this battery, charger and transmitter be ok with the nano two?

I have emailed you but guess your busy.

Thanks in advance for any help from anyone.

Hi mlg678,
That battery is way too big for an antweight, you need to look at a 2 cell LiPo in the 180-300 mah range for an antweight ideally. That charger works fine, just remember you need a power supply to go with it (Something simple like a 12v 2A adapter will do fine).

The Devo 7e is a good transmitter but you need to tweak it a bit as explained here: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2387

A TGY306HV servo works very well as a weapon servo, it can run off the nano two but you get much more out of it if you connect the red servo wire directly to battery voltage instead of the 5V servo output.

Hi thanks for replying,
So this battery?

On the servo, think I'll not to look up how to do that! Don't know electrics at all!

Thanks again for replying.

In the same boat as you Mike and am also looking to use Rory's system. On the spec sheet linked earlier in the thread there are links to recommended parts, the only one that doesn't work is the battery, I'm looking at using https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-nano-tech-180mah-2s-25c-lipoly-pack-compatible-losb0863.html as its the same power as the one Rory recommended.

Cheers
Jeff.

That's the same battery just with a different connector. You'd have to swap the connector but it'd work.

mlg678 that one is bordering on the large size but would work fine as long as you can accommodate the size and weight and would mean less charging.
