pre modified ESCs

Post by Hogi » Sat Oct 10, 2015 9:46 am

Hi everyone. i am wondering, would it be possible to use the boards from the pre modified servos on the antshop as nanoweight speed controllers? i just thought that if it was possible it might make things a little easier on those of us who lack the ability to mod servo boards ourselves. thanks, Dan.

I'm not familiar with those boards but if it is something people want I could start putting together nanoweight kits (in the same style as Rorys ant kits, ie no chassis)?

EDIT: Did realise due to postage restrictions I can't do full kits as batteries tend to be hardwired in. However I can do RX, ESC, Motors and wheels.

I think the servo boards in the Antshop are from standard size servos, intended for driving the 12mm motors usually used in ants. They're probably too big to go in a nano. PM PeteC to check.

Hi Alex. i would be interested in a nanoweight kit ( once i get some money) :) if you could look into it that would be great! :) what kind of price would you be asking for them?
