OK simply put I know nothing about how RC cars work and to be honest Im sure I could put together something but it would be a pain in the ass.
OK here is the law out. Some peps and I are trying to build a popper scooper robot thingy. Sorta like a rumba except with shit. Proof of concept type stuff. Here is the thing tho no Lipos. So we are going to run this whole thing off a PSU or something. Easy 12V and 5V. Again proof of concept prototype stuff here. So I was big into the who RC plane thing a while ago and I still have some parts. 80 amp ESC, A Tacon big foot 870KV motor, and a smaller emax 1180kv outrunner. Great motors btw for flying.
This car needs to be going like idk 1 mph less? Rumba speed or whatever. My question is should I run these motors at like say 5V with some gear reduction or 12V(not for the emax) with a shit ton of gear reduction. I dont think Ill have a problem with putting in 5V or 12V into an ESC. I just have no idea if this is like way overkill and I need something else or if I can pull out a lot of gears.
