Ordered parts for brushless upgrade

walkera 4#3 Posted on Mar 25, 2008 20:55:17

I am so tired of the walkera 4#3 main motor wearing out so now I have ordered the needed parts to upgrade this bird with a brushless main motor. I would like to express my thanks to the people contributing to the thread mentioned below, who hopefully have made this easy for me smiley

No parts have arrived yet.

I got a Mini-Z for birthday :)

Kyosho Mini-Z Ford GT Posted on Mar 25, 2008 20:50:07

During the easter my brother gave me my birthday present 🙂 A Kyosho Mini-Z Ford GT in black smiley He also has a mini Z so we set up a race track and raced. It was so much fun smiley
Today I upgraded it with ball bearings. Four 2-6-2,5 bearings are needed for the front wheels and three 3-6-2,5 bearings are needed for the rear wheels.

I have also ordered LEDs for lights. 3mm LEDs are needed and the body is prepaired for this. I have an idea for wireing so I will only need LEDs and wires. No resistors will be needed meaning the energy loss is minimized.

The wheels doesn’t look as good as I would like. Instead I think they should be black and at the same time some metal wheel nuts would be nice.

One of the mirrors had come off during racing. This was glued back on today with my plastics super glue.

Here are some pictures:
