Re: Ebike with Lyen 18fet controller & HS3540 motor. Needs TLC.

Any interest? I thought it would have gone quickly at $500!
Lots of great parts there to use on another built or even rebuild this.

The charger alone has over $300 worth of PSU's.
Controller, motor and cycle analysis work as they should.
Feel free to come and take a look!

Ebike with Lyen 18fet controller & HS3540 motor. Needs TLC.

$500 ONO including charger, helmet and armour. Pickup Parkinson, QLD 4115 Hi guys, I loved this beast and enjoyed using it while at uni however, it has sat unused since around 2013 and I think it beyond time to let it go. Here is a post I made explaining most of the build. https://endless-sphere.com...

Re: Micro Chargers - Kids Toy

As to the question about the cars not making it around the track after a few uses, you would think that the makers of the toy would've realized if the cars had bigger diameter wheels it would increase the travel and speed of the cars so they could make it all the way around the track. True, but the...

Re: Micro Chargers - Kids Toy

Hey guys, Reviving this old thread as I've just purchased some of these for my son (not for dad at all.... I swear! :P) No problems so far but we are considering a few more sets/expansions to extend the track and some of the online reviews particularly on the FB page have me a little worried. It see...

Re: New Crystalyte Motor series (HT35 / HS35 and HT24 / HS24

yeah Im sure i have seen a few post with people running mesh, but i think the overall consensus is it limits the airflow. My holes are 18mm. will need a stronger drill if i want to go bigger. :D Edit: for others interested, this thread has some great info on cooling using fans, fins, and also on the...

Re: New Crystalyte Motor series (HT35 / HS35 and HT24 / HS24

If you guys are making that much heat and still not satisfied with the output, you need a bigger motor, not more cooling.. wowzers.. Hahaha very true. Personally im a newb in the experimental stage, still trying a bit of everything to gain my own opinions & experiences. The lessons learned on t...

180!!?! Like a king!! I to was skeptical about dirt and rocks getting in the holes skippic, but after doing some heavy off roading/power sliding and thread reading i'm not worried at all. It is possible, but extremely unlikely. snowchyld, i havent opened my hs35 again yet, but i opened and measured ...

Re: New Crystalyte Motor series (HT35 / HS35 and HT24 / HS24

yeah I already dremeled it out a little when I did my wiring. I really dont expect it to work, the biggest problem will be getting a corner piece in or finding a way to get around the 90 degree turn where the wires exit the axle. All im going to do is see if it will fit, if so, ill hook up a bottle ...

Re: New Crystalyte Motor series (HT35 / HS35 and HT24 / HS24

So ive been thinking over the cooling options and I think im going to experiment with water cooling 1st. I have some very stiff 6mm OD tube i will try squeeze in and go from there. I get it in a 5mm hole for an aquarium co2 setup so thats about the size of 1 10awg... i think. If that doesnt work Ill...

To start I balanced all the packs together on 1 medic to 4.06 4.06 4.06 4.05 4.05 4.05 Also results are taken from the same medic so they are more comparable. Each pack was 6s2p of 6s zippy 5000mah cells. After 1 hour 40mins Stock 4.00...

Re: New Crystalyte Motor series (HT35 / HS35 and HT24 / HS24

Thanks for the 'safe' heat explanation Methods and John. So basically the windings can take a little abuse and I shouldn't worry to much about a weak winding smell at around 90-100c, but more about what spikes I am getting. I'm running 18s lipo, lyen 18fet set to 60/150a 2.5 block 85% max speed for ...

Re: New Crystalyte Motor series (HT35 / HS35 and HT24 / HS24

I'm also curious to what the safe max temp of this motor would be. I hit 100c pretty easily and seem to loose a bit of power if i get to 110c+ so I assume the limit is close to here. I see drbass has his alarm set for 142c on an x5 in his ebike to the future vid, but can't find much for this motor. ...

Re: ebike project by biker-ouf

Yeah im with philistine. I also run a hs3540 on 18s 60/150 amps. It draws around 4000w up steep hills with no pedaling but on flat stays around 2000w. I have cooling holes but at these settings the motor winding still hit 100c + and i can smell the windings. but then then we have had warm weather he...

Thanks guys :-) Choosing the components was a serious mission, but i think the hours of research that went into it turned out alright. The only thing I really cheaped out on was the drive train. And now I know more I think a stronger shock would have been a good choice, but so far the reba is nice. ...

Looks really really good mate. Pretty much puts my 1st build to shame :-( haha. Dunno if you worked out your amp settings yet, but phase amps should be about 2.3-2.6x the battery amps... So if your trying for 40 battery try about 90-95 phase and you may have better results. Personally on my lyen 18f...

Re: New Crystalyte Motor series (HT35 / HS35 and HT24 / HS24

Wow 4KW into the motor? What is the realistic limit without burning out the wires/motor? Ilia recommended 2.5KW at most into my HS3548. I have drilled cooling holes and changed the phase to 10awg outside the axle so should be ok. Will test it out further over the weekend on some steep hills to real...

Re: New Crystalyte Motor series (HT35 / HS35 and HT24 / HS24

Well I had my first ride, and wow!!! The HS35 is very fast. Unfortunately I didn't reset the CA stats before I left so i'm not sure of my true top speed or other stats but when i had the nads for a glance I was just over 60km/h with plenty left. Top speed I got from my 9c 8x8 with the same settings ...
