Re: What to do w/ a C40-300 Magmotor & 4 Hawker 12v 13ah batts?

Hi voicecoils, The power and rpm are almost exactly right for the lift fan on a small hovercraft. There is a thread on it on the forum here http://www.endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=3492 . Nick A hovercraft would be heaps of fun, but I haven't got the space. Have you found a motor so...

voicecoils, The Astro-Flight controllers aren't available, yet, so no one knows much about them. Here's another source: http://www.4qd.co.uk/index.html?Hom You might be able to accommodate the Mag Motor on one of the "Crank Forward" type bikes or a utility bike, another possibility is the Xtra cycl...

Re: What to do w/ a C40-300 Magmotor & 4 Hawker 12v 13ah batts?

Umm..ahh....I'd just buy some e-bike bits for an e-bike. Either a hub motor or an elation kit (or similar). Your motor is OTT for a pushbike!! :shock: And the batteries are too heavy...and will be dead now anyway. Hub motor would obviously be easier to package in a bike, but I'd like to use this mo...

Re: What to do w/ a C40-300 Magmotor & 4 Hawker 12v 13ah batts?

Here's what I've thought about so far regarding vehicle options: eBike: difficult to package this motor on the bike neatly. Also at 11.9lbs + the weight of the batteries the bike would be quite unwieldily. However, it could be used on the street possibly without attracting too much attention. pusher...

What to do w/ a C40-300 Magmotor & 4 Hawker 12v 13ah batts?

I'm seeking some advice on what to do with some items I've got sitting around for a few years waiting for an EV project.

Re: 08 Version of the Chaos - 72v 20ah

A quick update on how things are going.. I finally fixed the chain skipping issue, streched chain with new rear freewheel = problem Dropped into the local bike shop and asked for a new chain ( took a new freewheel with me ) told them it's no longer a shifting chainline.. just needs to be strong and...

Re: Mark W Mark2 build/butcher thread

The problem I see with A123 cells, apart from the expense, is unless you use dewalt packs as is, then charging is a pain. You either use an RC balancer or lots and lots of single chargers. I need this simple - I charge it everyday (at the moment I charge at work too). I'm not opposed to A123 cells,...

Re: Mark W Mark2 build/butcher thread

Hey Mark, You might want to consider a Thomson seatpost. They're supposed to be extremely strong and well made. http://www.lhthomson.com/seatposts.htm Shame about your pack, would a homebrew A123 pack be more economical in the long run? What's getadirtbike using for his packs? I really like the look...

Re: Dual Suspension Frames with rear steel dropouts!? exists?

re: the OP. I don't know of Aluminum full suspension bikes with steel dropouts but there are a few full steel bikes. BMW (Brooklyn Machine Works) makes two.
