Help, advice required on my LIPO purchase

Dear All Ive just taken delivery on my zippy flightmax 40c 3s 4AH cells, 16 of them.

Re: 72v 1500W 40A Hua Tong CA08 XM06AD_P04.1 controller

I had some success today with getting one of my controllers working and im pretty chuffed, so chuffed that i made a little video to convince others about these little controllers. nothing like seeing one power up a motor to get other motivated. Anyway thanks again to the guys on the thread fleshing ...

Re: Adding hall sensors to outrunners

yeah i agree the halls are a long way from the motor but i know that its running sensored cause i wasnt lucky enough to have it work with my first wiring combination only the second, which is still pretty damn lucky, as ive probo mentioned spacing is 17.14 degrees and is pretty accurate measured on ...

Re: Adding hall sensors to outrunners

Just managed to get a 80/100 working with my 48v golden motor controller. This is my first video upload to the sphere and also to youtube. The motor is from Leaderhobby and is the EMP not turnigy. this took me most of the day to cobble together but pretty much struck lucky with the hall wire combina...

Re: the unofficial Aline/removable dropout owners thread ;-)

I dont have an aline but i do own a norco team race DH, it doesnt have removable dropouts but instead i opted for some dr Bass torque plates, and what mine does have is a straight tube on the lower of the triangle which is gonna be perfect for sticking a battery rack to with some exhaust pipe style ...

Re: Doc's ULTIMATE TORQUE ARMS will fit most of the frame UP

This may be a stupid question but I havent seen the answer elsewhere. Just bought a Norco VPS for my second ebike build. This means scrapping the idea of a cheapo steel build. Since the frame is aluminium is there any issues when bonding these steel torque arms to the dropouts. Im talking the galvan...

Re: My Trip to Interbike 2011 in Las Vegas

Hey there, that 4kw hub is indeed an emax one. I managed to Buy one off eBay listed as possible faulty halls. I've bought one of mr lyens testers to check it out. From doing a quick goole check I found the company on Alibaba called proud eagle who sell the controllers. Really want to use the modular...

Re: Teaser Speed Controller

Im excited about this too. Recently i purchased a large Emax scooter hub motor 4Kw at 48v and I could order the controller off Alibaba from proud eagle but i figure that somebody on here has to be making a better controller with more power soon. Im UK based too and have two ebikes, this scooter hubb...

Re: Giant DH Comp - Damageless Torque Arms…

very nice work. I though about doing something similar on my 1000w gm scott ransom 30 alu build. In the end I bought the IDS (interchangable drop out/frame savers) and machined them to fit the hub motor axle so it would sit deep enough in the gap. I think ive been ok up to now as im at 48v though im...

Hey, Doctor Bass, just wanted to show some well earned support for these torque arms. Im in the middle of my second ebike build in the uk and this time im trying to do economy rather than throwing money at the problems like i think i did on the first one.
