I have hit 30 mph on this setup and it only cost me $331. I wanted to go cheap on my first build and I think that’s exactly what I did. It does get pretty hot but it works and its fun. Check out some pictures below!


that seems like a high Kv motor, glad its working for you though :smile:

looks like that case needs some breathing room

Nice work @Mikee! You can get rid of the straps for your enclosure with some 2-ton epoxy. Scuff the bottom of the board with sandpaper, scuff the contact point of the box, dump a glob of the epoxy on the board and let it dry and cure. I have a similar enclosure and once I mounted it it’s never fallen off.

Wow, I never thought of that. Sounds like a good idea. I will try it today or tomorrow. Thanks!!
