What do I need (electronics) - niceast - 07-05-2017

If I bought a frame kit.

What electronics do I need?

Motor? Battery, charger, controller? Anything else.

Also I new to this rc stuff, any recommendations?

Couldn't find any sticky that had this information.

If you are brand new at this RC world, let's start with a basic guide..

Esc, choose a brushless system (more power) You can't go wrong with any kit if you find it on RCmart or Hobbyking. Any Ampere like 25-100A should work fine in a 1:10 onroad car - If it is a truck in 1:10 then 80-150A should be good.

The Motor, again, brushless with either 3 or 4 poles, though 4 is for the trucks - The KV rating is weird to me, since we use Turns, to determine how fast the motor is, the less it turns the faster the motor - The most common in Formel 1 is 17.5 to 21.5t and in touringcar it's 10.5 to 17.5 while in Drifting it's 10.5t and in trucks it's 5.5 to 10.5. Only those little downforce little 1:12 pan cars use 3.5 which are insanely fast.

The servo. It depends in which way you need it but overall choose one with metal gears, less chance it will strip and more durability. In drift and Touring, 0.05-0.15 sec is requried and the torque between 6 and 15kg should be fine. Are you in a bigger vehicle, then it should be stronger and there is doesn't matter that much if the speed of the servo decreases.

Radio and transmitter. If i have a say in this then it's pretty clear, DON'T buy cheap radio's, because if you like to have perfect control then it's not something you can skip upon - In my point of view, a Sanwa MX-V is a pretty good starter kit and while there is lot's of unnamed kits they don't compare even by half of the settings on the MX-V, but again, your choice but remember, if you get one RC, you will at some point get another and so forth ;) I speak from experince. The benefit from having a better Radio is also that you can have many cars, 1 controller and many receivers that you can bind and choose which one to connect to - Very cool and saves a lot of space (if you are having 5 radio's to 5 cars) and money in the long run.

You will further in, with your ownership and trial/error/accident's repair your vehicle in many ways but it requires good maintance to keep a car running smoothly, like clean and grease bearings, replace oil in the shocks, alter setups and rebuild after a breakage - It's all part of the experince of owning a RC, like having a real car, but the difference is you are it's mechanic so learn to car, see how it's put together, use proper tools and NO Powertools Hand power only for the feels of tension ;).

Good luck out there, it's a big jungle with lot's of moving parts in it.
