Hello all, it's been a while since I've been on.

I'm wondering if any of you know where to find a light weight 16:1 or 10:1 gearbox. We use the banebots gearboxes paired with RS 550s, but they each weight a pound and a bit, which is too much. I'm holding our robot to a 14lb. weight limit because we are incorporating a secondary mouse bot distraction wedge thing that's going to zip around and hopefully pester the other team. Does anyone know where I can find a lighter planetary for an RS550?

I also considered that, but I have no idea how to set that up. Is there a brushless dual motor esc? I have no idea where to begin.

There are no 2 motor brushless esc's currently on the market, that I know of. Our brushless drive system weighs roughly the same, if not more, then our brushed set up.

I have seen 300 series brushless motors work as well as the brushed 550's
