Hello everyone! I have been browsing this forum for some time now and I thought I’d give it a go myself.
I have a loaded Sama that I would like to motorise using a couple of components I had laying around from previous projects and I would appreciate any feedback or advice.
I am planning on using two Turnigy SK3 63mm 190kv, with Kegel wheels on a Independant truck (200mm). For the wheel drive, the only thing I could get my hands on were two Scramboard motor brackets (ordered few days ago, hope these will fit), an Alien Power wheel pulley for the Kegel wheels and a 15T 5mm pitch motor pulley from amzn.
I plan on using 4×Turnigy 5Ah 3S 20C for maximum range.
Which brings me to the stuff that I think I am missing: *Couple of ESCs: I am based in the UK and I found it really hard to find a good ESC solution at a decent price+shipping. Any advice on this would be highly appreciated! *Tx/Rx: same as above, do you know any place in the UK Europe supplying compact sized, one handed use, cheap controllers? *Wiring diagram: given that I am a total ignorant when it comes to electronics - any resources with regards to how to plug everything together would be a huge help *Anything else missing on this list??
I will keep this thread updated as I progress and I will let you know if this thing ever sees the light or if I end up dropping the ball
PS: the picture shows how I would like the motors set up. Given the size of the cans I don’t fit these will fit side by side (which is a shame really). I might have to go the Diagonal build route… any thoughts?
