Antweight ESCs

Post by Anty-social »

I have recently been designing a new 2WD antweight flipper, mostly salvaging parts from my broken old one. However, since it's the ESC that died, I'll have to buy a new ESC for my new one. Since the NanoTwo isn't being sold at the moment, what are the best antweight ESCs available? The most promising I have seen so far is the one on the Bristol Bot Builders website, but that doesn't have braking. I would prefer an ESC with braking and not too much necessary soldering, and which is as small as possible. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks in advance.

My ESC with built-in receiver, Malenki-Nano, is available on the BBB web site and has braking built in.

But that *only* works if you use a AFHDS2A compatible transmitter, e.g. Turnigy i6. If you want to use some other transmitter, look elsewhere.
