Combat RC / ESC/BEC controllers and motors- Brushed and Brushless
June 9, 2011
Hey LMR I was hoping you could help me with a few questions the internet/google cannot fully teach me haha.
So I am thinking about maybe making a combat robot/battle bot (http://www.robotmarketplace.com/therobots.html) whatever you want to call it with some left over cash. So I have some questions on Brushless and Brushed motors.
What is the difference between Brushed and Brushless? So far I understand that one has three wires and the other two- +, - , brushless has a servo wire( to make it simple for me ;) So what am I missing? Is one geared or what?
Also I think I understand that I have to have a ESC with BEC for another battery for the motor. Am I correct? And would I need two? One per motor?
Sorry for the multiple questions but please help a guy who needs some good teachers to explain it to him :) thanks
Feel free to ask me anything- Such as my intent/ what I know/ anything. Thanks
