Re: broke my golden motor controller any one fix these?

If you are going to quote then use quotes if you are going to copy from another contributor then don't do it on the same page of the thread, if you were just pointing out the futility then please don't. Got to be optimistic else I'll never learn how to repair these things

Re: broke my golden motor controller any one fix these?

Checked. Both ways. Beeps both times no other fets showing shorts though, if I replace the fet and not the resistors for gating will the fet just blow again, I thinking yes but I'm not sure.

Re: broke my golden motor controller any one fix these?

so, after it being on my desk as a paper weight i feel like i should have another go at repairing my golden motor controller. I really like the regen and i have no qualms about max Voltage being 48 volts, infact that works well with my wattmeter, (too cheap to buy a CA, and too broke). This is becau...

Re: rode over my lipo battery at wot

yeah I know drafting a barndoor of a cyclist is cheating but just wish there wish more of them about, set a decent pace, police less likely to pick on me if i'm behind a unassisted machine going quickly. plan to never have my lipo run over me but one day it might try and get its own back.

Re: beer cooled motor

I gotta say that's a ridiculous idea, who likes warm beer? plus if you get stopped by the police on a bike which requires water cooling since its overvolted and is already illegal the last thing you need is to be smelling like a brewery. Just a waste of beer. beer cooled biker is what you need.

All up for the idea of a UK race meet but not sure I can do London. you would probs need about 10 to 20 people to make that a reasonable cost of day. there was talk of a meet further north which had offroad cycle track riding. sounds a) cheaper b) more suited to our bikes.

Ill be impressed if you do. 18x2x4 = 144 16x2x5 = 160 basically from my very rough calculations iovay you want to put more lipo inside the frame than i have hanging off the bottom, all i can think is good luck on that.

Tench, A massive fan of the skills. Love the simplicity of this idea and like that it can be made more or less parallel. I do my 18s2p pack in to 9s2p halves but I went the route of a hyperion 1420i (i wanted the chance later on to buy some 4s packs so supplement my 3s subpacks to get a 14s/(28s in ...

Re: Hyperion 1420i For $110!!

I see the point of the usb isolation unit. Ie to not void your warranty. but having said that I can now charge the lipo in the shed outside and monitor it web internets anywhere so I definitely prefer the bluetooth hack.

Yeah trying to make this last since it cost enough to buy and replacements will take time to be delivered. Thanks for the education, I'm new to lipo but I'm getting the hang of it, first kff the other day hopefully the last.

Lipo damage voltage for 18s = sign of the devil

I think its probably generally excepted that lipo's lower voltage limit per cell is 3.7v. I decided to work out what my new 18s pack would read at 18x3.7 to see what voltage to stay above. To my surprise. 66.6 spooky eh? In other news today finished my battery box for 18s 2p of zippy flightmax 40c 3...
