I broke my collar bone into 3 pieces ~2 weeks ago. Now have a plate and screws in my shoulder...
I've begun my rewind (1-1/2 handed
). The start came out good, but I can tell that I can't get double 6turns of 13awg wire on there for a full rewind...sooooo close, but no go. I just got 14awg wire in today so I will be starting over and do a double 14awg 6turn wye wind.
Here is my latest sketchup with what I think will be the final lipo layout on my build.
For charging I'm using:
Meanwell clones for $40 each: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=swi ... supply+24v
(Change the voltage in the search for what you need)
Fechter's Mini Meanwell Limiter V.3: http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewto ... 16s+charge
I'm using a 36v and a 27v with fetcher's board on it.
The total cost comes to ~$110.00 for a 700+ watt user adjustable charger!
For ~$80 more you could double the power to ~1400w by adding 2 more (series) power supplies in parrallel.
Fetchers board can also take a 5v-g signal from things like the cell log-8 to stop charging if any cell goes over ~4.22v: http://epbuddy.com/index.php?main_page= ... qnbnbpv2a7
(They also have all the plugs and cables you could ask for. Hint: check under the "connectors tab for some hidden balance leads, the 8s ones I needed anyway.)
And here are some pics of how it looks now running with only first grear, my old stock 130kv 80-100 motor, a 190-200amp super simple ESC on 6s, with a servo speed regulator and a Multi function watt meter w/ the screen on a ribbon cable and mounted to the dash:
Here is a closeup of my thumb throttle I modded into a finger throttle, I like it!
It is UN-STOPABLE even on only 6s on hills so steep the rear wheel slips or the bike wheelies up!
Though my top speed is only ~7mph..but that was enough to brake my collar bone onto 3 peices...
Ebike: Wallmart Genesis frame, unique Lovejoy 2-speed simplified/redundant drive mounted on custom aluminum swingarm conceptualized by me, machined by Thud. Brushless 80-100~100kv w/halls, 16s6p - 59.9v, 30Ah, 1.7+KWh, Fully Loaded Lyen 12 FET 3077 controller w/ Cycle-Analyst, full custom lighting.
