Beetleweight Brushless Drive Kit
Everything electronically and mechanically you need to get a beetle driving – but with a more premium powerful brushless system – BBB brushless ESCs, FingerTech or Repeat Robotics motors, mounts, hubs & wheels and our full beetle safety kit. Optional BEC, receiver and wiring loom. Just add a lipo and transmitter – we recommend a 3S or 4S 500-850mAh Lipo and a FlySky i6 Transmitter.
24mm brushless gearmotors are geared for speed and power, we recommend running smaller wheel sizes or an extra reduction stage, particularly at 4S – this drive setup was on Joe’s Grab Crab at Rapture 2022 with great success! All metal geared 24mm planetary gearbox, beefy hardened steel 6mm shaft – extra length for bearing support or use rotary tool to cut off excess to save weight.
We recommend you build a chassis from 8-10mm HDPE for the walls and 4-5mm HDPE for lid/base, we have a full beetle build guide here. Any issues or questions during the build, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us on facebook, we’ll be happy to help.

Beetle Brushless Wiring Diagram
As with every gearmotor, it is best practice to remove all the screws and reassemble using loctite. A small dab on each screw will be enough to keep them from vibrating loose.
– Since the gearboxes are packed with grease, it will need to be cleaned off of the eight small Phillips screws before applying the loctite.
– Even better than loctite is a product called Vibra-Tite VC-3. Apply it to the screw threads, wait 30min, and it will harden to a plastic-like coating. Since it hardens before touching the greasy gearbox threads, it can do a better job of holding the screws in place.
