L.W.S Robotics build diarys

Post by tweedermeister »

let me introduce myself, My name is Jack, I'm 15 years old and have recently decided to build a featherweight, I already have 2 antweights. I decided to start a thread so any other builders can tell me if I'm making any fatal mistakes.

Yeah, thats the one, but you'd need 4 for 4 wheel drive really.

Tes they have leads that go straight to the reciever and 2 leads for the battery and 2 for the motor.
Remember to get the plus and minus from the battery correct, otherwise its pretty straight forward
