Re: Farfles Electric Ultralight.

Thanks for adding the pics and videos! That plane looks amazing! I love how you don't have fiddle with fuel air problems or warm it up for 15 minutes before taking flight.

And here comes the questions:

Why don't you add PV modules to the wings, you could have endless flight time! :roll:

Re: Hidden motors - a problem for the future?

Isn't it as simple as weighing all the bikes at the finish line? Any bike that weighed more than say 15 lbs would be suspect and brought in for further investigation.

Hey guys, I just picked up this board for $50 hoping the batteries were at least good, but the ol SLA's registered 0 volts. It also did not come with the controller but I knew that going into the deal. What can I say, it looked like a fun project! :P My plan for the batteries is a pair of ebay 18650...

Re: Posturing and Rants on the Rear End of Things

Very old thread indeed!

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think the geared hubs are only reliable at less than 2000 watts. Aussie Jester had a failure early on and abandoned the geared hub.

Waiting for this vids... My friend did a custom mount for his GoPro off the rear axle, that would be cool to see on this bike off the right side. :twisted:

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

There are sensorless ebike controllers on the market, I think Kelly Controllers sells one. They are bulky, but more robust, IMO.

On the Astro motors issues, it would be nice to have another motor option for the bargain builders out.

Re: The "Best" way to get outsiders interested in EVs?

I still think an organized racing series aimed at kids is the best promotion. You get teachers parents and kids involved, and there is a goal. Start out with go carts for early ages and work up to dirtbikes and ebikes for older aged kids.

Yeah, that sounds exactly the way the owner is describing it voltage wise. I watched a video that says the van weighed like 3600 pounds, but without the batteries it only weighs something in the neighborhood of 1700#'s. That's a lot of lead! I wish I had the extra funds to put some Nissan leaf cells...

Re: Revolt Rv-120/ norco aline ( rc mid drive)

If I'm reading corretly, you want to push the motor past it's max rating? If it holds up, that would make this motor a bargain.

Any idea what it was originally designed for?

Are you concerned with dirt getting flung in the motor from the tire? It would be easy to throw a mud guard on there...

Re: Revolt Rv-120/ norco aline ( rc mid drive)

Great build!

If it works for you, don't change anything until it breaks, then just replace with a stronger component and keep riding. I really like how this was built with common tools and the simple solutions to common problems.

Hat's off to you sir!
