Remember that you’ll need

Basic control:

  • 1 micro servo
  • a 2 channel radio transmitter and receiver.
  • A motor speed controller (ESC)
  • One 540 motor or two micro-motors, depending on the version of the tractor you chose to print.
  • A battery

Full control:

  • 3 micro servos
  • a 3 channel radio transmitter and receiver if you want to use the rear arms.
  • A Y servo cable to move two servos together
  • A servo reverser to invert the direction of one rear servo
  • A motor speed controller (ESC)
  • One 540 motor or two micro-motors, depending on the version of the tractor you chose to print.
  • A battery

Steps:

  • Cables from the motor (or motors) should go connected to the speed controller (ESC).
  • The speed controller black-red-white cable should be connected to the appropriate channel of the receiver (in my case channel 2)
  • Direction servo should be connected to the appropriate channel of the receiver (In my case channel 1)
  • (full control only) One rear arm servo needs a servo reversed because the servos are mounted in opposite direction. If you don’t use one, one servo will go up and the other down.
  • (full control only) Once one servo has been reversed, both rear arm servos should be connected to one Y cable in order to join two cables into one.
  • (full control only) Now that we have only one cable coming from the rear arms, this should be connected to the 3rd channel.
  • Last step would be to connect the battery and… Enjoy!!

Hope this helps!
