Re: Part recommendation

Get rid of the point nut that goes on top. Instead you have the thread sit in a bearing supporting the blade at that end. Drill some holes in the blade so the bolts that hold the adapter on go through it, tighten and loctite them. I knew the nut looked odd on the bot. I found these bearings; http:/...

Re: Help!!!

You could take a look at my forum post (under yours) and make sure your wiring is correct. Go to the last page for the final diagram. Not really helping your question, but could you post a picture of how you mounted your blade onto your bot/motor. Im at that stage in the design and im stuck. Again l...

Will do. That gives me a bit more room. :)

I didnt realise how big the motor / how small the bot was until I put the motor into sketchup to play around with positioning.

Re: Part recommendation

Make sure you support the blade on both sides, else the motor will likely break rather quickly. This is usually done by bolting the prop adapter that comes with the motor on the other side of the blade, and then supporting that in a bearing. It's relatively simple and makes for a super strong setup...

Re: Part recommendation

Ah, I see. My diagram wasn't that far off then :D

Do you have a link to where to get that kind of switch?

EDIT: would this switch be better - http://www.robotshop.com/uk/tamiya-mini ... h-2pk.html

Re: Part recommendation

Right diagram has been updated. I've added in a zoomed section to see the Y part. From what I understand, the wires are joined and connected to the original connector from the NanoTwo and use electrical tape to cover up the join. Would the black cable from the switch connect in with the black from t...

Re: Part recommendation

Well you'd have to make one. Damn, was hoping you weren't going to say that. Right so a smaller diagram will be required inside the main one to show the y lead. Okay then, where do I start with the y lead. Im assuming that its not done completely from scratch and that its a few cables with the righ...

Re: Part recommendation

Why hasn't someone invented a small bridge that can be placed in between the battery, NanoTwo and ESC instead of cutting the cables. You mean a Y lead? I put switches in by cutting the red wire on the nanotwo and connecting it, the brushless ESC red wire also attaches to the switch. then splice in ...
