Mini RC component links wanted...

Working on a project...
Some one link me to some components for mini rc... I have no idea what is out there right now, or comming out.

I need a small:
reciever... and...
brushless esc with reverse, for a car not a plane...

I can fit a full size RX but I want something smaller...
I might just give in and use that spectrum 2.4ghz radio

Anyway I need the dimensions and stuff so I can put it in cad and size up the space I have available...

Yes this is another of my AWD versions... since its been done, by kyosho/xmod... I plan to make this a very different car now, so different that I do not think it has even been done on any RC chassis yet. But im not saying till I do it.

With this chassis I do not believe there is anything that could be cut by laser... there is no flat part.

If you're talking about 2.4, you probably have 75MHz FM?

Super tiny, decent prices. A buddy uses the multiplex with his JR radio and likes it, but I cannot vouch for the GWS.

That pico RX is perfect sized.. I will likely be using that if this project comes to tangibility beyond the pc...

Now I need a brushless ESC, that can handle more than one motor
I can just wire them in parralel i believe for dual motors... with little issues I think yes? The way brushless is they will always be "matched" right?

My original design was belt driven as well... but I also want all the bodies and rims, as well as custom length/width adjustments on mychassis so I scraped it... for a shaft drive train... wich I might produce... this project is a bit different then both the previous designs . What makes it so hard to crap it all in is the way the autoscales mount... the side body clips are always in the way of some concepts...

Hello,

for the brushless ESC, I plan to buy this
It is fully programmable and has all functions for cars (reverse, brake, abs etc.). And, the most important thing, it is the smallest I've found with these features.

For the receiver, the smallest receiver is the pico 4car but it is hard to find, I;ve found an online shop that sell them but I do not remember the link, when I will find it again I will post it.

Have a nice day!

Manfredi

The Quark is what i currently have CAD'ed up in 3D, in my AWD file... but I would rather have a smaller esc... I do not need all the programing stuff.

Unfortunatly I was also going to call my chassis the QuarRC lol - I need to rename it I guess...

I think with the extra space I saved redesigning this car I am going to have to redo the battery bays into a 6 AAA cell configuration .. maybe it will just be an optional thing.. like my lipo battery bay ... swap them out between the 3.

Need smallest brushed ESC I can get to run a 130 motor.... for non brushless version... the prototype

With all the itty bitty tiny plane esc, I would have thought there would be at least one with reverse out there that wasnt like some 60amp esc LOL... sigh... only need like 5-10A...

Draco, do you have a CNC machine or machining tools?! I wish I knew someone who did who could make my Mini-Z Mini-Clod concept a reality. Heck, it could be 1:24 or even smaller...if I have the ability to make my own professional quality parts.

Drac, I'd try to track down an IPD esc. They have the race 20 (IPD R-20) and the IPD R-18 (newer than the 20). Its a canadian company and they've gone out of business, but the ESC's were super tiny and airplane style, but designed for cars (ie, will setup correctly on a pistol grip etc.). Might post on one18th and see if anyone has one. The people that do love them (you will also find some pics of them ideally). If you want dimensions, I should be able to get them since I know people that have both versions.
