As far as battries go the new trakpower shortys run the 5mm bullets and the tubes go from top to bottom so you could actually run the battery wires under the battery as well.

How did you accomplish this? 3D printing could probably be very useful for this type of work. I would LOVE to get this worked out for my TC and 12th scale SERVO/RX.

Had to re-do wires for the Mile High. Not the best but it shows what you can do without anything special.

Very cool it's nice and low and not to big. Is it about the same size as the 3.1 or smaller.

I think the footprint is a little bigger, and it has an external capacitor so it's bigger still, not for a super-tight space.

On the upside, it comes with a flat heat sink as standard but I had replaced it with the finned one when I was messing around with a hot motor (it has no motor limit but will get hot with a big modified), and with the flat heat sink delete it's the lowest-profile 1s esc with a voltage booster I have found.

You can get them in blue or black for about $90 on Ebay, but I think they are out of production.

Not bad at all.

I've never used the Trackstar stuff, how do you like it?

Why on earth did you mount it with the wires going over the fan? it would affect the airflow quite a bit like that.

Flip it 180 and the motor wires would be out the way - and shorter.

The wires will be shorter but less "aligned"...

It's ugly when the power wires are crossed...
