went 9 mph, according to the speedometer, but i think i need to adjust the speed setting!dbaker wrote:Fun is good How fast does it go?

I can't find it now, but i remember to read somewhere in the forum from someone that was getting the "halls error 2" message when running the autodetect process and have managed to bypass that error by locking the wheel in the first seconds of the process.GCinDC wrote:purposely didn't finish the bike last sunday, so forced to pedal in all week. great exercise, and esp good for my shoulder.
now i'm trying to finish it tho and am hearing a loud pitched hum on autodetect, and get this error:
tested all halls w/ ebike tester, in case colors were diff w/ mxus 3000. blue/green/yell are halls. red/black for power. white for temp..... right!!?
same pin out wiring as diagram and old motor. actually rewired it twice. same error.
Frack me, look what's out now! Prolly not legal to follow me in traffic, but damn! Amazing that it's waterproof, but I wonder how it'll deal w/ trees!Hyena wrote:Isn't it amazing how far technology has come...
I bet you could use compact, relatively low-power motion sensors or IR sensors around to avoid trees and even very thin features.Hyena wrote:I saw these just yesterday. $1000 retail or $500 if you pre-order. I'm seriously tempted but apparently they're not 100% at this point in time with their prototype. They claim they'll have it sorted by the time they're mass produced, which shouldn't be a drama, but it's still a bit of a gamble considering there's a bunch of other similar products out there now. Again though, for $500 including camera it's a top deal.
I wonder how long before someone chucks one in the air only to find it wasn't properly powered on and it promptly smashes straight into the ground
I reckon give it 12 months and someone will be producing something that can avoid trees and other obstacles. Atleast solid trees - the odd stray fine twiggy protrusion or thin cable would probably still bring one unstuck - short of some advanced image recognition/processessing/AI.
There's already DIY options for sonar and proximity sensors so it won't be long.
I'd be more interested in one that could precisely track a GPS route. Strap it to your back and go ride your trail or route of choice, GPS log it then ride it again and the copter will appear to follow you. Couple it with the existing wifi tracking systems to alter speed as you do, use an precision altimeter/barometer/sonoar/whatever to maintain an exact height so it won't hit power lines or high overhead trees and you're set.
