FATBETTY – New power plant test – Home made RC Truck gets a sensored brushless system!
I stripped Fatbetty back down to the chassis to replace the motor and ESC with a new sensored brushless system.
The other brushed motor was binding up for some reason, so I replaced it.
This system should give me more torque and a bit more top end speed. The motor is about 3600kv.
Because the Axial Transmission is mounted back to front on the chassis I had to program a few settings on the ESC to get it to work correctly. I’m not a big fan of doing the electrics, I prefer building the steel bodies and that sort of thing. Just got to remount the truck cab and reconnect all the electrics properly now.
