Help! New Dragline build

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Im new around here and getting back into RC stuff finally again and have been starting my new dragline build. If any of you do not know what a dragline is, there will be a picture and small description at the bottom!

Im looking at electronics and for the moment for testing and building I will be going the cheap way and ordering off a site because of credits I have and don't want to put the good pricier stuff in until its complete. So Im wondering if you guys can look this over and tell me if all this will work in the links below. I know this though:

1 motor to 1 speed control. I will be running 3 motors in total.

1) 360 rotation of the machine
2) Top spool
3) Lower real spool

I will need a 4 or more channel Receiver to handle the plug-ins of all the speed controllers.

Radio will be a 2.4ghz, as I hear its the best for price ranges and most common. Will be dual joy sticked for easy movement and you can put 2 different movements to each joy stick.

Here are the links:
Speed Controllers:

Let me please know if all this will work together. Batterys I still have a large amount of lipo and 4-6 cell batts with smart LCD screen charging. Im hoping all this gear will work for mean time.

Thanks everyone!
