Re: Connecting a Cycle Analyst to a Castle Creations control

I'm messing with a CA3 and an RC ESC that also requires BEC power. Using the above diagram as a guide I connected the yellow CA3 wire to the 5v pot pad on the CA3 board. Im using an external grin shunt with the pass through throttle ground and yellow wire. A strange observation is that the CA3 scree...

Re: The BEST and FIRST Qulbix Raptor mid-drive build!

This website will generate a sprocket .dxf file or cnc code for you using your input of roller diameter and pitch.

I have not tested a sprocket generated from it in the real world but it looks like a nice free tool.

Re: Gas Gas Trials bike conversion

Typically someone would ask for guidance related to specifics in the original poster's thread. So if you want to solve a problem in a similar way as another person its normal to post pics of your own stuff on their thread. That is encouraged and can be helpful. However, once you actually start build...

Re: Controlling throttle speed completely with Arduino

Looks like you got it working. From what I have seen so far you can give the throttle or in your case arduino an independent 5v power source as long as the grounds are shared between the throttle and controller. The way I understand it is that the controller only cares about the voltage between the ...

Re: DH Comp Rotomax Mid drive

That does suck but at least you'll know its done well. My 80100 outrunner had strands of wire that were loose and just hanging out if the bunch. Some were long enough to scrape on the magnets or get wedged in the air gap. Quality control isnt exactly what these motors are known for.

Re: Gas electric hybrid questions.

There was an old commercial on tv about a prius having more lines of computer code than a fighter jet. Balancing ice vs electric power for max efficiency would likely require a computer. I think you would need full continuous control for rpm and torque of both the gas and electric motor so the perce...

What is the rpm/volt for this motor. The spec sheets from most of the vendors just list the max rpm at 5000 but it would be nice to know the kv specifically. Thanks.

Re: DH Comp Rotomax Mid drive

Sorry to hear about the suspension. I'm always amazed they hold up as long as they do. Everything on bikes seems impossibly thin. Looks like you have the skills to repair or remake the suspension parts if you have to. You could probably bore and sleeve some of those parts and they'd be stronger than...

Re: Albatros enduro bike.

Might be a little challenging to tune the output of the torque sensor to match the non-linear tension on the chain. As long as you can map the signal coming from the sensor it should work. I would think you could use a strain gauge in an aluminum bracket holding the chain idler to minimize moving pa...

Re: variable field motor demo

Neat! Looks expensive. If its just a method of field weakening, would there be some advantage to doing it mechanically vs controller? Could this mechanical method be used in addition to controller timing or do both methods reach some practical limit of diminishing returns?

They also aren't as vulnerable to EMF. I would look at an automotive TPS for cost and waterproofing. I'd grab one fr...

Re: 2019 ditch your rear disc brake ?

Using the rear brake extends your stopping distance. The hardest you can stop is with the rear wheel just above the ground. Not challenging that statement but am genuinely curious about your source material. Do have any links or articles explaining it? Seems totally reasonable that the max braking ...

Nobody said you couldn't lock up wheels up with regen. In a nutshell, the same way ICE unconsciously encourages you to speed away from a green light.

Nice plan and work so far. Controllers for these large RC motors have proven challenging for bike use so far which is why you don't see a whole lot of them run to full potential.

Is there a standard thread-on bike Freewheel in there? If so, is the innermost circle of 8 bolts smaller than the minor diameter of the Freewheel threads so they can pass through to the hub? Its hard to see what is going on there? Are you keeping it secret? :wink:
