We have a special contest today , two new swift 50a esc and two New axi gold 2800 , this is 350 dollars of motor controllers and high end motors. It's simple to win , post your ideas of how you would use these in your robotic project , you can write a paragraph or more explainong concept , sketches or diagrams showing how you would use it , or even pictures of placement of where it would go in your current robot (that means even lloyd can jump in on this).

#17  
bought some fiber plastic to very light weight,usinfg EZ board ,gyro,and looking at a way to add a altimeter

I think im going to put a pnumatic suspension system on my bot for adjustable ride height and stiffness. Im thinkg about having four seperate pnumatic cylnders oberating 4 individual suspension arms for the road wheels and of course its all powered by the brushless system running a small compressor to fill an air tank. Alao i might wire the suspension to an accelerometer, gyro, flex, or other type of sensor for active stabilization. Finally later i might think about making it amphibious some how.

Imrisaac you win man the idea to use a motor to turn a compressor was really the most creative and you already started the project.
#20  
@imrisaac great project,you deserve it,it will be awhile before i need the motors ,have a few projects to finish first,plus busy looking for a bigger house for my robots and my girlfriend moving it,looking at a 5 bedroom house ,one room to design and build my robots

You dive alot? Those are high rpm motors they may not work well in that situation , underwater props have a 6 times more aggressive pitch than regular props so they spin low rpm. Those motors are high amp high power but you don't want to put them in a completely sealed container they need air to pass through them , at least a little just to stay cool.
