Re: ESC with built-in receiver - interesting?

A minor status update, the current prototype is now close to the final form factor, I've made a few (minor) cock-ups in this design, but it was not final anyway. These will be fixed in the next respin. It looks like it will probably work and drive 1.8 amps per channel, I need to do a lot more testi...

Re: Team Ions build diary

Hi everyone! I'm fine. Nearly Everyone is self quarantined at my work. The change to teaching and administrative course management from home is very tedious and time consuming. I haven't had much time for robots and my chinese parts were mia. I also haven't finished ordering stuff like batteries or ...

Re: Team Ions build diary

I also thought about it and I was over thinking it. I'm going to order one of everything else I need from US suppliers and that way I can test out all the tx and rx to make sure they are working while I wait for the slow shipping orders to arrive. Quads seem neat, but I really want to spend my time ...

Re: Team Ions build diary

Just got in my banggood package which obviously traveled through 2 war zones and was sat on by a hippo. I think in the present circumstances, you should be glad they sent it at all. As China is mostly on lockdown a lot of workers are not permitted to go to their place of work, or are on reduced hou...

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

Does this bot have two batteries? Are they two, 1S batteries to distribute the volume to make the design work where a single 2S would be too big; or two, 2S batteries to get more power like one for the wheels and one for the servo? Power side it's just a normal 2S battery. I'm using 2 single cells ...

Re: Team Ions build diary

Just got in my banggood package which obviously traveled through 2 war zones and was sat on by a hippo. I would like to have seen them use something other than a plastic bag for packaging. They literally taped the 4 flysky TX together threw the rx on top and wrapped it in a garbage bag. That's it, n...

Re: Team Ions build diary

I now have 1 jumper T16 transmitter (no batteries) 4 KST ds215mg servos And 5, 5A ESCs Waiting on batteries, 1.8A ESCs, receivers, flysky transm...

Re: Charger question

Most of the Ant robots use packs with 2 or 3 cells, I don't think that charger will be able to charge such a pack, unless you make a splitter cable and charge one cell at a time, which is very inconvenient. It's not clear from the description that the charger can charge a 2S pack by using two chann...

Charger question

Hi Does this charger look good? I know it is just for 1s, but I can't find any that I want (isdt or hobbymate) that are sold by Amazon itself right now and I've got a free $15 off $25 for using their photos app that musy get spent. If this is decent for 1s use I might get it just to use the coupon a...
