The numbers you are referring to are not rpm, but standard motor sizes, all bigger than the N20 motors you will likely be using in a 150 ant. The rpm should not have much affect on the capacity of ESC needed.
Thanks a lot!

Re: Hello! And some questions - And NEA Build Log of Sorts

Hi there. Thanks for providing the link to the ESCs you bought. I've been looking for an ESC recommendation after struggling to solder a DasMikro! (I'm very much a newbie to robot building). Do you (or anyone else) know if this ESC will work with 500rpm motors? The title on the site says "..This ESC...

Re: Help with first antweight

Hi and welcome. George has answered your questions but there are just a couple of things. First the motors are only 70 rpm so the robot will be extremely slow we normally look for 300 - 400 rpm at 6 V. Also you say you bought a secondhand DX6i which is a great transmitter but the older ones were DS...

Problem is I have no electronics knowledge, zero mechanical knowledge, I’ve never soldered and basically have no clue. So......should be a cin...
