gives full speed forward and back,
etc., but no faster in the corner
I had been using one TinyESC
and one Botbitz ESC in Saifu, so I
had to replace the Botbitz one with a
TinyESC. Once that was done and
both re-calibrated, Bluehh Cheese
proved to be a very fast little bot!
A 3 mm LED was fitted with an
in-line 270Ω resistor (to limit the
current to about 0.020A, so the LED
does not simply burn up) and a micro
RX connector. This was plugged into
the RX to give a power-on indication.
The LED itself was retained by a blob
of Goop adhesive. The completed
bot can be seen in Figure 7 with the
hatch and one of the wedges fitted.
My first Fairyweight is now ready
for its first competition. SV Figure 7.
