What deltangs do you use in yours? I can't seem to find one that has reverse in the built in ESC's.

I use the Rx47 as per:

If you look at the previous page of this thread you can see how I modify it to be plug in so a commercial loom can be used.

Here is the Nano I have built using the new gear motors and bang good receiver and controller that I was discussing under the Resource Website / ebay gear motors.
It was more a platform to try out the components than a serious attempt at a competitive nano.

Here you can see how slow it is.

But at least it has some power.

I did strip one of the gearboxes down but surprisingly it is a single stage epicyclic gearbox so no chance to change the gear ratios.
I might try it in a flea with much larger wheels to see what sort of speed I can get.
