Beetleweight Drive Kit

(1 customer review)

From £63.00

Everything electronically and mechanically you need to get a beetle driving – BBB motors, mounts & speed controllers, FingerTech hubs & wheels and the full beetle safety kit. Optional BEC and receiver.
Just add a lipo and transmitter!  We recommend a 3S 700mAh Lipo and a FlySky i6 Transmitter.

We recommend you build a chassis from 10mm HDPE for the walls and 5mm HDPE for lid/base, we have a full beetle build guide here. Any issues or questions during the build, you can email us at or message us on facebook, we’ll be happy to help.

Select Wheel Hubs:
We're stocking Snap Hubs while Twist Hubs can't be manufactured. Requires 2mm hex key & circlip pliers.
Add a Twist Hubs Key:
To smoothly twist on the twist hubs! We made this out of laser cut nylon. Needle nose pliers are another (more scrapey) option.

The Flysky receiver is intended for the Flysky FS-i6 and other AFHDS 2A transmitters, please check your transmitter supports this before purchasing.
