Re: Look what the mailman brought today ! 7 years 10 months ago #11980

Apologies for the rubbish cameraphone pictures:


Nicked the charged battery from my son's Frog, raided the kitchen drawer for 8 x AA cells for the Tx and IT LIVES!
Run it round my (very small) patio and it is very easy to drive. ESC (GM V12) is forwards only, which I might have to change, but turning circle is very tight, so may be OK.
Any comments on the motor?

Hot or not?

Edit: Please can someone tell me how to upload images :angry:

Looks like the link code was right, not sure yet why these images can be hyperlinked.
Could be a temporary error... I'll take it up with Lars.

Another option would be to use the "Add File" button below the text field when writing a post.
You can browse your computer then...
After that, click on "Insert" to make the image appear real size. Otherwise it will be added as a thumbnail.



:y:

Edit - that motor looks very capable. Orion is a good brand. B)
How many turns it is?

Don't know. How can I tell? It doesn't seem to be written on it.

Hi Martin, thank you for pointing this out, as I did not know there was a problem. :)
Anyway it's fixed now, and code pasted from the gallery will show an image in the forum.

Pfew... tough one. Probably by measuring the length (without taking it apart) - if the specs were know.
Or put it on a dyno to check the revs or power consumption.
Least scientific approach would be to estimate by top speed.
Looks like there's many version of it - down to 10T.
Btw - I did see some specifications of these motors. Quite impressive.

I needed a guinea pig for my final installment on painting, so bought the cheapest new lexan body I could find - 14 GBP for a Kyosho Porsche GT3, complete with window masks & decals :y:

It was part of a DeAgostini "Nitro Racer" partwork - if you're not familiar with it, it was a way of paying 600 GBP for a 200 GBP car :whistle: I guess there are a lot of incomplete ones out there, but at least they have some value - unlike the DeAgostini EP partworks...




It actually arrived last Wednesday, but I needed a bit of time to finish it ;)

Chassis is my TT-01 (which usually has an RS200 shell on it) for test fitting, it really needs wheels with 9mm offset :blink:

I doubt if I'll run it, I probably won't even keep it - it's use was really only in the photos I took of the painting process.

Awesome! Love that shell, even if it's not a Tamiya. :woohoo:
