Gav's FG marder - The lemon marder - Brushless marder

Postby Gavin » Sat Dec 29, 2012 5:12 pm

Finally back into the largescale petrol club :good:

Sold the brushless pulse and the boat to fund a 23cc FG marder

Have got a killswitch from norco and a tuned pipe on its way from china. Also waiting on hub convertors from rc-car-online so i can run the HPI wheels i got from sphinx.

Looking for hostile mx knightmares or an equivilent for those wheels.

Will be changing radio gear to fly sky gt3 and the servos will be swapped for new ones. Then i need to change the roll cage as its meant for an fg beetle and the wing doesnt fit properly.

Had a few problems with the steering servo today.

http://i1226.photobucket.com/albums/ee4 ... 8F42F0.mp4

Took it apart and found that the screws that hold the motor to the case had come loose and were lodged in the gears. So i screwed them back in and glued them in so they cant move. Also a wire had come unsoldered so soldered it back to the board and its all working again.

Looking good Gav. The HiTec works great in the Marder. I assume the wheels are for this beast?

Good news the rear wheels have beadlocks on them.
