Beetleweight Drive Kit

(5 customer reviews)

From £91.50

September 2022: We’re currently offering this drive kit with a Tarakan Dual ESC rather than two BBB Dual ESCs – see the Tarakan page for more info on wiring, specs etc.
Everything electronically and mechanically you need to get a beetle driving – BBB motors, mounts & speed controllers, FingerTech hubs & wheels and our full beetle safety kit. Optional BEC, receiver and wiring loom.
Just add a lipo and transmitter!  We recommend a 3S 650mAh 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 bristolbotbuilders@gmail.com or message us on facebook, we’ll be happy to help.

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.

You will need a BEC (Battery Eliminator Circuit) to lower the voltage of your lipo (12V or 16V) down to a safe value for your receiver (5V) and possibly a weapon servo.
Add a Receiver:
The Flysky receiver is intended for the Flysky FS-i6 and other AFHDS 2A transmitters, please check your transmitter supports this before purchasing.

    Great kit, simple enough to be able to get my head around for a first build!

  2. Jimmi Cottam (verified owner)

    Super convenient and super affordable. Definitely grab a set or two as they’re handy to have, especially when you need spares. Quick delivery too!

  3. Jack (verified owner)

    Awesome kit for building a beetle. Enough to get a good start on the electronics without pigeonholing you into a set build/design.

    Can’t recommend enough!

  4. Stuart (verified owner)

    What a great kit. I found is really helpful in finalising my 1st design as it was all there for you to move around and work out your placement and dimensions. I would definitely recommend adding the break out cable as it makes things so much easier.

    Dependable.
    You won’t find a setup cheaper with this level of reliability.
    It’s the first thing I think of when I want to make a drive.
