I sure do! Everyday I think about how or what I could do that would pull a decent living in Australia. I play the lottery with intent of relocating if I win.kiwiev wrote:Here here Rix you really need to come down underRix wrote:Really like the vids you and Kiwi make, this is no exception.

Yeah, pretty much spot on. I didn't include most of it coming back down cause it was so steep the footage was mostly rubbish.Rix wrote:Nice Vid CD, yah, that was super steep. When you can tell its steep on a GP, that means its GNARLY!

In this instance a single cell let go (blew out corner of Cell) and the ensuing voltage differential appears to have fried a bms lead and in the process took out other balance leads. Nothing to do with the bms as the failure occurred before bms. Damage amounts to a few bms join cables and a 5 cell pack written off. The bike was running 20s3p so by disconnecting failed pack and turning bms off my son was able to ride out? If I didn't have the tool to access frame the video may have had a more exciting finale.
Lol it reminds me of grass skis I seam to remember they had a track on rollers could mount a motor to the tracksCowardlyduck wrote:Yeah, the snow was epic! Mind you I'm easy to impress when I haven't been for 3 years.
Would love to hear/see more about the skidoo. Strap a GoPro on next time you head out.
Your skidoo idea got me thinking when I was up there, I haven't seen any electric Skis yet.
I reckon it wouldn't be too difficult to strap a decently powerful RC motor to each boot out from the side with a small paddle wheel on it. Add spring loading to keep it on the ground and a servo to retract it on command and you would have boosted skiing to get you almost anywhere on the mountain.
Batteries could be in a backpack or sit on top of the inner portion of the skis.
What do you think?
True, but they can't complain about what they can't see.kiwiev wrote:Lol it reminds me of grass skis I seam to remember they had a track on rollers could mount a motor to the tracks
The only thing is the fun police, it was really hard to get the electric Skidoo into the national parks.
