that looks tidy! makes my wiring look like a loom of S#!T. Cant wait to get the time to put together a new bat case, so I can make mine look like that.
Do you need to reconfig for charging?
nope....the db25 connector at the bottom has all 12s cells or 14 pins for balancing and the remaining pins share (-) and (+)....5 each. This is not a new technique, I am copying what alot of people have already done, and it is a neat solution to balance charging lipo.sn0wchyld wrote:Do you need to reconfig for charging?
I think I might be doing something similar already, only I still use the discharge leads for charging too, rather than through the db25. I still have to reconfig as my charger only manages 8s charging, and im running 20s. Using the spare pins for the main leads is a good idea, but how many amps can the pins take? Im charging at 30-40A, so not sure they'll take that...rodgah wrote:nope....the db25 connector at the bottom has all 12s cells or 14 pins for balancing and the remaining pins share (-) and (+)....5 each.

dont worry, i think everyones first attempt looks terrible, mine looked like abortions thats for sure, but the more times you do it, the more you get a feel for how to make it neater and simpler.

One question: Since you were building from scratch, why didn't you make the battery box part of the frame?
Thanks whip.....sometimes I stand back looking at it an go 'wow' myself lolWhiplash wrote:Absolute work of art, one of the very best builds on the Sphere in my opinion! I love the detail work and the simplicity of the look! You are one hell of a craftsman!
its a hope mono floating disc. Plenty of members on this forum use them....doc007 wrote:that is a sweet build! it looks like you are running a floating disc brake. when you get a chance can you show some more pics of it?
Thanks Matt though I have no faith in the postal system delivering any of its promises. I can get stuff to my doorstep faster from Chain reaction or hobby king china than I can from the neighboring states in my own country, but by far the slowest is usually from US/Canada. And even when they guarantee it and its late they blame it on customs . Either way thanks a million .recumpence wrote:Cool!
Your box shipped out yesterday "Express Mail". It is guaranteed to be there next Tuesday.
Make sure you get a build thread started on that Agni bike. I am interested in seeing that too!
