RC Helicopter flying, RC Cars and RC boating

Made for other people and me to track what I am doing when with my remote controlled units. It started out with helicopters. Hence the name.

If only one of my units is of interest, this unit can be clicked on the right and only posts regarding that unit shows up.

Light on the Ford

Kyosho Mini-Z Ford GT Posted on Apr 05, 2008 21:00:17

After some experimenting I made a somewhat satisfactory light solution for my Kyosho mini-z Ford GT. The lights looks really good when the car isn’t moving smiley The light intensity however drops when accelerating so perhaps I need a different circuit design so I can eliminate the light intensity drop when accelerating.

I guess I will ask some of the electrical engineers at work on how to improve the light circuit.

Brushless upgrade failed :(

walkera 4#3 Posted on Apr 05, 2008 20:54:55

I spent all thursday last week and lots of last weekend getting the brushless upgrade of the walkera 4#3 working. I couldn’t and then I ordered another ESC. I read these ESCs sometimes cause trouble. I also did some soldering on the ESC. Perhaps this damaged the ESC. When I had finished there was no way the ESC could make the motor go.


Now we will see how it works when I get the new ESC.
