...your involvement in RC isn't limited to hobby-grade stuff, is it?

I design and manufacture for Ebike, military, and UAV applications. None of which anybody will ever know specifics about because of non-disclosure agreements Got to design the electric motor for a 500lb flying wing UAV last year, that was pretty fun.



And because of these projects I haven't had time to finish up any personal funsies like this rig. The last few months have been 60 hours/ week minimums. I have some files out to other facilities to try and speed up the process.

Any chance you will link the 4 ESC's together? Then maybe have the ability to control the motors via RPM instead of voltage?

Yeah, this one petered out before completion. Been a helluva last few years. Stopped doing contract work and sold the lathe before it burnt me out. Also tons of new vehicle releases keeping me crawler satisfied and occupied.

But.... I could just print housings and throw 380 revolvers into the wheels now (new mini outrunner coming in a weeksh) . Dont need to use sensors at this point either. Ok, I'll put this back on the table. Still have all the parts.
