Um er , I know its not a quad.
It actually works , sort of, not much good in dirt and i have some work to do on power delivery .
But so far i have foward reverse and with a bit o resource remap nad mixing in the remote i have steering coupled with yaw.
This is a work in progress .
Cheers

I have this fear that without gear reduction you will need a very low kv. Maybe some of the old 2212's from the DJI phantom aftermarket era motors? The ones for 9 and 10 inch props, that come in the 700kv range? I have no idea how low you need to go, what kv are you running? How do they perform? also: I would start with the smallest tires possible just to keep the torque load on the motor low (in hopes that it will work at all). Does it drive on a smooth surface? Off road?

Hi , It motivates as is , but yes different motors or a planetary gear system would be better . But i have to do some mixing and what knot to bring it under control , and yes i will post a crash real . but here are some pics of my drone motor powered crawler (2212 950kv).

I'm just building a similar thing with 6 wheels, drone motors in the wheels but I build a planetary gearbox in the wheels for bigger torque and lower speed :D https://i.imgur.com/DMrTwlW.png

Are you familiar with swapping ball-bearings and bells? Our motors are not made for this, but anyway cool build.

Please tell me that at some point, you'll make a buggy that can transform into a quad and back!

I see some bent motor axles in your near future.

Good lord. You really can't be safely left alone, can you? Look what you've gone and done now?! Absolutely brilliant.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
