Haven't been following football much this season until recent. I see the Steelers are killing it this year ! If they end up playing the Chiefs,, I hope they put a ''big'' woop'n on Mahones. They lucked out beating my Raiders, that was a real good game though, Sunday night in Vegas. It's funny that the Chiefs got most the penalties & played dirtier. ''That's a switch''. LOL.
No reply's or likes ?? What's going on Guys??
ended up with a 6.1 - 1 gear ratio on the 48v Mini.
10t on the motor & 61t on the rear.
Got it all buttoned up & took it for a couple of ''chilly'' shake down rides. ''It flies'' !! Not as quick as my ''Purple haze'' GX-200 Mini,, but every bit as fast. AUW is only around 75lbs!
On the home stretch now. Waiting on the elect. throttle & just minor final assy.
Am making the frame // batt. housing work,, out of ''very stout'' 3/32 aluminum.
The packs will set in the upper part, with the length of the batt. tray being 11 inches.
It's ''a lot'' of work with out having a press brake, & having to clamp it all to the end of a bench,, & use ''lot's'' of map gas heat, & elbow grease, to get the bends bent & dollied down correctly.
New project in the works for a Guy. Brushless 48v 1800w electric, powered by 2 -13s 3p Li-ion packs that are run in parallel.
Each pack has 39 18650 cells, with each pack also having a ''BMS'' protection/balancing circuit board.
Ah rating for each pack is supposedly 32 ah ea !
Hooking both packs up in parallel,, the Ah rating doubles to 64 Ah.
Full charge voltage for ea. pack is around 56v.
Have always had a love for Hydro's, & had them off & on since the late 80's, of various sorts.
Been looking for one of these little guys for over 1/2 a year, as they were discontinued 5 years ago. It's 18 in. long, & has a 2200kv motor & 30a water cooled ESC. AUW is right around a lb., with the 3s 1000ma lipo. Did a bunch of mods to it, & it cruise's smooth @ about 1/3 thrott. going 30+. - feeling cool
Phil made it out to the field to fly the Toro Flying Lawnmower that he bought from Mike wilson. It was a little hairy, he did a good job. A little tail heavy. should fly smother next flight!
