Default Xr 10 electronics setup? Plz help

I cant really figure out how to set up my xr 10 that i am going to get. For the esc i was just gonna get the holmes hobbies brxl one. I am not planning on using this for comps so keep that in mind. I have no idea what to get for batteries or a charger. I am mainly looking for run times. Thanks so much!

I would look in the XR-10 section to see gear recommendations, I think if you're going to bang them (35T or 40T) you may end up killing the stock gears.

As to the punkdig, I believe you are OK with 3 channels, but not sure.

What radio do you have?? That will make a difference.

I ran a single ESC and a servo dig on a 2.2 Bully MOA.

I figured out the radio situation. Now i need the esc/motor. I was gonna get the integy lathe motors. Would the holmes hobbies brxl work?

There is a great thread "Sticky" in the XR10 section for best choices for many parts of an XR10 Build:

Harley's Complete XR10 Guide

The recommended ESCs are listed. Other people are running Sidewinder Micros with success....I know one guy running the B1r ESCs (Dual ESC setup) and having success. You cannot run just one of them. With the Micro ESCs you need to run a Dual ESC Setup....and do not forget the "required" BEC.

If you are thinking of running a single ESC, please consider running one of my dig controllers:

MOA Dig Controller for Three Position Channel

MOA Dig Controller for Two Position Channel
