View Full Version : Auto cutoff ?
How does your Bleriot behave when out of batteries?
Hey spiff , thanks for your reply , on the motor problem I have talked to some guy who told me to do just what you said about the brass bushin, and also told me that I shold get a new cap screw one with just threads at the end that screws into the motor and have a smoothe shaft for the rest of the screw that goes through propeller and gear also to get a thrust bearing that is used in r/c cars to out in place of the washer thats there now, so I think this will work , as for the preformance question you asked when my batteries get low it sends my servos crazy once it gets to a point where my engine is really low then the reciever I guess can't process the signal correctly and my servo's get thrown to there limits , its nuts but that's what happens to me hope this answers your question...
OK. Your Breriot behaves just like mine.. And "nuts" is the correct word.. If this kind of behavior should occur in the air http://www.ikarus-modellbau.de/ubb/images/icons/frown.gif
Some kind of auto cutoff would have been nice..
My girlfriend made me some brass bushins so now I just have to get them in palce...
And a screw with a smooth shaft will make the construction as perfect as i should have been out of the box..
My Bleriot just lands, or has to fly downhill. I use the Ikarus flow fly controller, Tadiran cells, 20 + minute flights.
With my Simprop Spad S13, can't get it high enough to worry. About 8 minutes of battle to keep it in the air, won't fly on a six cell nicad pack, marginal on 3 x Tadiran. My Taube has a cut out in the speed controller, so the motor stops, 20 + minutes on bigish Nicad (Sub C, unknown capacity).
