recommend a good ESC/motor for high efficiency 7.2v vehicle?
December 26, 2010
I bought an RC truck chassis which has "Trinity T-Tech Modified Motor for Tamiya, Duratrax Blast Reversing ESC" (verbiage from listing; the motor and ESC are labeled as such). It is a strong and fast setup. But it goes through batteries like water in the shower. I am thinking about replacing the motor and/or ESC if I can get reasonable speed an power and a much longer battery life. It goes faster than I really need to for most robotics anyway. I am suspicious that the ESC is the culprit. It has a large heat sink.
