Right On! She looks like she handles very well, great job! I'll bet that feels good after all the building. I'd be surprised if I'd ever get to sleep tonight after that kind of a day. So, how long was your 1st flight? Any data logging, amps volts, watts? BTW, the camera work was terrific. Could you ...

Re: Overvolting a minn kota trolling motor

..... Yesterday I knocked up a belt reduction drive so I can do some testing with an outrunner driving the drive leg that I used at the weekend for the cordless boat race.

Re: Cracker Box for my daughter

This is pretty damned cool! I just moved into a house on a lake with my own dock. I keep thinking what type of a boat do I want as this lake only allows electric/man/sail powered craft. I've been busy as hell at work and after with another house remodel so I haven't had much spare time for hobbies. ...

Chain slipping on drive gear means wrong chain or stretched chain or misalignment or worn sprocket.

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Yes, that location [where the wires enter the motor] is most likely the place where if not liquid water, just water vapor from the atmosphere gets into the motor. Apparently the heat of the motor during a typical ride does not vaporize those condensed droplet enough to drive out all the water and v...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

CobraJet You didn't get the two round chrome magnets with your order? They have the hole in them, shown in the picture you posted. You need to attach the sensor and magnet to your brake levers. I think the pedal sensor is optical or similar and does not need a matching magnet, could be wrong. OK, l...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

I just got my kit and have a couple of questions about the add ons I got with it.

I got the Cadence Sensor and the E-Brake cutouts. How do these mount? It seems to me they each should have a magnet along with each sensor but there weren't any.
