Pure Dead Brilliant

Reversible ESC

Weta will be fitted with a reversible Turnigy 35A ESC so that if the bot is inverted its a simple matter of reversing the direction of the drum to keep on fighting.  I've seen too many drums rendered ineffective by being inverted.

The manual for the ESC and the programming card

The ESC is bigger than advertised and the wires add considerable excessive weight and bulk.  I'll add pictures and details of the actual size and weight and how I trimmed it down to fit


The Fan and power switch were removed, the large Capacitor shoe-goo'd in place and the various wires wire shortened to reduce weight and size.

Weight was reduced from 2.5oz to 1.6oz

Solid models of the lightened ESC can be found here.
