View Full Version : brushless from ikarus for Shock Flyer
has somebody tried the Brushless Motor Set from Ikarus
for the Shock Flyer?
What Motor is it? How many amps ext.
whatever you do, do not buy a motor or controller off ikarus you will be ripped off /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
I have an Axi 2208/26, 9x4.7 prop, and a Phoenix 10 that I use with either a 2 cell 830 mAh or a 3 cell 1200 mAh pack. Both setups have insane power, vertical like mad and a cool motor afterwards.
Also have a look at www.brushlessmotors.co.uk (http://www.brushlessmotors.co.uk/). Running this motor and 2 cell 340s you get about 10 mins of crazy flying and the Shockflyer is so much easier to fly at the much lighter than stock wieght. My learning to hover video is with that motor, see link below. The quality of the C&K motor is excellent but I'm sure you could get a DIY CDrom motor to perform as good with a bit of work.
Hi , I'm interesting for the axi2204/54 do you know if this motor is powerful enough for 3D flying on a shock flyer ?
Yes I think so. It is slightly faster and slightly heavier than the motor I use.
2204/54 (http://www.modelmotors.cz/index.php?id=en&nc=produkty_vypis&kategorie=m_neod ym_ac&id_rady=axi_22&id_produktu=axi_2204_54&nazev _rady=Series%20AXI%2022&hmotnost_rady=(24,5%20-%2057%20g))
Can you fly 3D with your motor ?
Do you think that the axi 2208/34 should be better than the 2204/54 ?
Hi Jean-Maxime My model could fly 3d but I can not yet /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif It hovers at about 60% throttle.
The 2208/34 is more powerful than the 2204, but is twice as heavy. I like to keep the Shocky light. One of the fliers above has a 2208 and likes it, have a look back up to Robdog007.
JJ - you fly yours much outdoors? I always used to fly mine on 3 cell 340 packs so it was light as a feather, but since all my 340 packs decided to die in the space of 1 week I've been running them on 3 cell 880's - no where near as nimble indoors, and harriers are now at a much greater angle to get its speed below walking pace, but outdoors I'm finding it a much more capable machine.
EDIT: Sorry, should say WAS finding it a much more capable machine until Blight did the wall landing with it - I thought when he asked if he could land it on the wall, he meant he'd hover it into a vertical landing on the wall, not just fly into the wall then watch it drop to the floor in pieces /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
Dongle mostly outdoors, just had more opportunity so far. Would have taken it to Halesowen last time, but, er, sort of forgot it http://smilies.networkessence.net/s/otn/love/newblblush.gif
I'm trying various packs though not chance for many flights yet /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif
I will try some bigger ones eventually. I do like flying it even in a breeze at 182 grams, it does surprisingly well. And of course doen't need a runway.
I've been meaning to ask what a "harrier" is <G> some sort of slow high alpha flight?
3DRC.info has pics, descriptions and movies of most maneuvers, you can checkout the HARRIER (http://www.3drc.info/aerobatics/freestyle/harrier.htm) here, scroll down, there's a short video as well...
Theres also some stuff here on 3d manouvers captured from realflight so you can see the sticks moving
Nice picture of their vinyl sticker on the homepage..... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
Left hand side, menu, go to the 5th item: what is 3D?
Btw, that is a real good website and address....
