hey i need some input on electronics. i am planning on building an rc "battlebot" to compete against my freinds with. The plan is to have 4 wheels, 2 oneach side with no steering, just left side forward and back, and right side forward and back, like tank controls. i need to know the equip. i'll need and how to use it. That's a lot to ask i know and i'll appriciate any input. thanks.

If you havn't noticed i'm new at making my own custom stuff:(

what kind of electronics do you need? how much money are you willing to spend? why did you post it here? are you going to make it of mini-z parts? so many questions:p

You should be fine w/ 1/10 scale Tx/Rx, and then for the ESC and motors, you need to look for electric wheelchair parts.

there are tyco cars that work like your "battlebot" maybe you could work with those electronics. btw there should be mini-z battlebots. they wouldn't last long:p

i was planning on using all rc components(1/10-1/12 scale). i have lots of radio stuff to use and plan on using 2.2" truck wheels and 20-turn motors. this is not a serious destruction robot, but more of a fun thing my freinds and i do.

you could try some silver can 540 motors instead. they will have more torque and more "destuction time". the 20 turns might be a little fast, unless you want to be running away all the time:p

ok thanks for telling me what to use but it's more inportant to me to see how to use it. like the drivetrain and the esc/reciever/servo and radio. i really have no idea how to do it and cant find it anywhere. thanks alot u guys are helpful
