Example robot: The Chilli Daddy. by Jack Franklin

The Chilli Daddy. is Jack’s very spicy four wheel drive horizontal spinner. He uses BBB Brushless Drive ESCs with 1806 brushless conversions for drive. (see this great tutorial) He uses a 5V 3A BEC to power his receiver. Check out his build diary on the forum.

  1. Jack (verified owner)

    Great little ESCs. They’re tiny, lightweight and work great paired with 1806 rotalink conversions. I’ve been running these in both my beetles (Luchador and The Chilli Daddy) for while now and have no reason to use anything else.
