So I've been doing a bit of riding lately and recently noticed a number of differences between my current (newer) Mini-E and my previous (blown) Mini-E.
My old Mini-E never over heated, and never exceeded about 60C. This was the case on both my 4T HS4080 and my 5T Leaf Motor, however in both cases my top speed with properly tuned settings was 60-70kph...although I can't recall if this was on 18S LiPo or 12S.
Now with my New Mini-E I can hit 85-90 kph on 18S LiPo, with roughly the same tuning, however it overheats super easy the moment I encounter any kind of incline. I've played around a bit with the phase amp limits on the Eco/Normal/Boost modes and managed to make a bit more usable, however it still overheats way too easily IMO.
What do others think? Is there a chance my old Mini-E was a freak performer....I did hit nearly 8KW before I blew it. Or is my new Mini-E a dud?
Or, have I just got a messed up tune? I did crack open and re-seat(epoxy) the hall sensors on my HS4080 since I had my last Mini-E. I also can't remember if I was running 18S or not on the last controller. Does the voltage increase significantly increase heat that much?
When I'm moving at a decent speed, 30-50kph, in Boost mode, this thing just shoots like a rocket up to 70-80kph and scares the hell out of me on the dirt.
It's only when I'm trying to go up steep inclines, it basically becomes unusable unless I use Eco mode and pedal like mad. Keep in mind also that my Mini-E is covered in Heat sinks, cooling fans and thermally sinked to the frame, and it is still overheating reaching 75C.
