Dr MeSawYou is a 3lb. combat robot featuring a linear actuator using a threaded rod driven by a brushed motor and kitchen sink electronics 3A ESC
The drive train consists of 2 brushed D2 motors from BotKits.com and 3A kitchen sink electronics
Saw motor is a timing belt driven brushless 3530 Turnigy airplane motor from Hobbyking.com run by an Afro 20A ESC with Simon K firmware.
Note: I have tried other ESC’s that failed to startup where the Simon K has much better low end and get’s it going every time!
Battery is stuffed in the main steel tube. Battery used is a Nanotec 850mAh from Hobbyking.com
The result is a fast machine that has sawed all the way through opponent’s 1/8″ aluminum body panels on two occasions! Very fun to drive and watch.
Be sure to use carbide tipped blades if attempting such a design and be very careful with sharp edge guards and
