That seems to be a most practical application.
My ESC applies brake when fully throttled back. The blade stops immediately. I would then program my transmitter to apply reverse polarity only in this...

Thanks for your thoughts.
My outlook is that after the EDF aircraft has landed, the throttle stick is usually in an idle or stop position. At that point, an electronic reversal would be engaged by a...

Reverse Thrust Braking?

Has anyone done this with an EDF? Wouldn't it be more practical than mechanical brakes? It would seem pretty easy to electronically reverse the motor wires to create this. I know the tubing isn't...

EDF Motor Maintenance

Hi All,
Do these EDF motors require any lubrication? I have 2 that have hardly been run and somewhere in the rpm range, they both seem like they have a slight rough spot. I don't know if I can...

The 6C would be for an upgraded EDF that I will switch out for the stock EDF. The upgrade has 2x the thrust as the stock one. I feel the need for speed. :)

I definitely have every intention to use them. I bought an F-16 almost 2 years ago and have yet to fly it. Just have been too busy. I even re-subscribed to AMA when I bought it and wasted that money...

That pretty much sums up my question Nigel. I don't know what they'll do when I ask for performance. They've only been used for a couple cycles so far and both cycles were just ground tests, no...

Thanks for your thoughts! I monitor the packs about once every 2 months and they stay above 3.8/cell.

Lipo Question

Hi All,
What is the shelf life of a lipo in storage mode? Does it lose any performance on the shelf or does degradation occur just with cycling?
Should I bring it to full charge in certain...

Hi Dereck,
When I received this Life battery, I charged it to 6.7v. (3.35/c)
When I turn on the transmitter, it still reads this or at least has been toggling between 6.7 - 6.6. Like I...

Lipo vs Life Charging

Are Life batteries the same as Lipo in that they need storage voltage? If so, what is the proper voltage to store? I have one in my transmitter but I've been using it off and on for...

Telemetry

Hi All,
Looking at some alternatives for telemetry sensors. I'm not sure which ones would be compatible for a 10J Futaba. Will FrSky work?
I found this one for voltage.

Thx.

RC Lander 70mm EDF Test

Hello All,
Thought I'd share my tests on this RC Lander. This is also a vid so those interested can hear the 10 blade version.

I used a 6S Revo 3200mah 40C HV lipo charged to 4.30v/cell.
It...

EDF RPMs

Hi All,
I'm trying to figure out the actual RPM of my set-up. Do I need an RPM meter for this? An educated guess says I would multiply my motor kv x my lipo voltage but that doesn't really take in...

Thanks for the motor animations Ron. That helps out with the 3 wire process.
I am however familiar with DC polarity so I would never reverse the power input wires. :)
