Re: My Trance 29ER (work in progress)

Still not worth a picture, this would have to be the hardest thing I've built, and Im not all that happy how its coming out I've decided to make it big enough for the fat zippys and the longer nanos, so the shape sux a bit but I took it for a ride before and it don't get in the way and should be mix...

Re: My Trance 29ER (work in progress)

:) Worth getting a turnigy wattmeter in line for about 30 bucks. Voltage sag and amps will tell you a lot about how much you are using and what you have left to upgrade. What battery config do you have now? I got 6s 8000 nano techs got eight of them and four zippy packs that are just a prick of a s...

Re: My Trance 29ER (work in progress)

Greets from Ballarat. Lemme know if you're ever 'down south'. You would've seen a few 29's on the last group ride. Worth talking to user Revbecca about the Gm controller limit - they are the local importer and top tweakers. Winkinatcha is also a Melb retailer and can help with larger controllers. O...

Re: Tricky43's Giant DH Team Lyen 4115 x5306

Looks like you have some good kit there tricky, I can't really see a drama with those small dints in your frame, though I'm only guessing, carbon would work to strengthen up but might make a new stress point where you finish it, on the thin tube. Guessing again. At least there where you can see em s...

Re: My Trance 29ER (work in progress)

The 29 should make it quicker, I am a bit worried though, it did have a 700 rim 28 inch on it and was cool running I hope the bigger diameter doesn't make it work to hard. I can only relate it back to one the planes I fly a multiplex fun jet, set it up with a 4s 3300mah lipo I had a 4.1 x 4.1( diame...

Re: My Trance 29ER (work in progress)

Spent the day working to make both the zippy s and nanos fit. the zippy s are shorter fatter packs, to wide I've decided, can't get any shape in the guard,will look boxy enough as it is and is already 140 accross so I pulled it off, to play build the top again, hate that. Anybody need 4 6s 8000 zipp...

Re: My Trance 29ER (work in progress)

Still making battrey/ controller compartment, been a bit of a headache fitting it all up so its still removable, might be worth a progress pic tomorrow. Got some more batts, a charger, and got my hub in the 29er rim. Old mate down the shop had 2 goes at it he cut the spokes for a three cross patten ...

Re: Power tail light at controller??

Thanks for taking time to respond there,
The controller is an external one, I think for my limited understanding of how to make the magic smoke stay inside I might run a separate circuit with a rechargeable 4.8 aa pack at 2500 mah it should last a while, and I can handle the bit extra weight.

Re: Power tail light at controller??

I've wondered that myself. An incandecent might take a lot of power and heat up something, but 5v for a light? Trouble is, how do you complete the circuit so the light will light, without engaging the ebrakes? Mmmm, Mabee I can't find that info cause its not a dooable thing. I was thinking earlier ...

Power tail light at controller??

G'day all, I was wanting to power a small led 5v string to incorporate into my battrey holder/mudguard. I have a golden motor controller, can I bunk into the red and black going to the throttle on off switch. Or get 5v out of the controller of something else?? http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor...

Re: Hitec X 2 400 how's this? 2x 400w Anybody using one?

Looking through everywhere I found it hard to grasp what people were using to bulk charge lipo. So I thought I'd stick with what I'm familiar with, I am setting up 3 48v 16a to be put on my bike as single packs then joined 2s2p. So I should have one pack charged one in the bike and one charging. I d...

Hitec X 2 400 how's this? 2x 400w Anybody using one?

My local hobby shop has ordered me a 2 port 2x200 watt charger for my 6s packs for 196 bucks,
Then I see hitec also has this for the same money ish.
I'll grab one I recon, anybody else using one?
