Re: Tesla Model 3

Why our friends from Down Under are so negative and why @TheBeastie and @Hillhater hate Tesla sow much? I was scratching my head to the point of bleeding, and finally it dawned on me. Pacific peso is 1.43 to US $1 (today's rate). They just can't afford to buy Tesla. The only hope for them will be if...

Re: Manned multirotor

Brilliant build. It looks like it is very light, portable and stable in flight I remember watching on TV similar builds supported by large organisations, and IMHO yours is much better. People just don't understand how much it takes to build something that works. Specially building something on a sho...

Re: Dave's 80:1 RC mid drive kit build log

Just as the forum suggested, I did not check the torque on the crank arm bolts, and I lost one during a ride. Found the crank and pedal, but the bolt is long gone. Does anyone know what standard those crank arm bolts are? I tried one I had laying around and the threads were not right. I don't have ...

In China there is no way to tell what came first the egg or the chicken, unless it is a fake egg. These definitely come first and chickens are not part of the process. Check that out :shock: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvEBN8Jd5DE

Re: Small and big block rickshaw motors on Amazon.

Its a clone of the cyclone (Denzel D4500) motors. http://www.eastgem.net/d4500.html Chinese motors are all clones. With these motors it is impassible to tell which one is better because Chinese will cut corners every time they make something. Still for $100 with controller they might be worth the r...

Re: Small and big block rickshaw motors on Amazon.

Bigger than Cyclone 3kW and 2-4kW, with a lot less torque and a fraction of the power? What am I missing? Is the controller just a place holder for the real thing? Price and compactness. Both are very important for a light e-bike build. Now if you planning to build e-tractor Cyclone is a way to go....

Re: Small and big block rickshaw motors on Amazon.

Yes, you can take it all out. This is exactly the same motor that LR is selling for $250/$350 and that without a controller.
And you better be nice or he will not sell it to you. :shock:

With BMS you don't know what is going on until your pack is not working. I don't trust BMS boards made in China and I'm definitely not paranoid if comes to Li-ion batteries.

Re: Bosch mid drive with vesc controller

Thank you for the post. I will definitely use that knowledge on my build. :bigthumb:
Couple of questions:
How is the torque sensor connected to power and is the signal from the sensor wired to the controller?
Is the torque sensor inside of the bottom bracket?
Thanks
