Here’s where I’m at now. Took a few tries to figure out how to mate the CGT to the 44. (Hummie is pictured for scale, 44 is big. )
I tried a stack of heated kydex and tried to make essentially a giant gasket that would mush into the semi-organic curvatures between the two boards. Failed.
I Tried wood. It was super effective. It’s stained black. I’ll post guts later. It’s semi structural. I’m going to glass them or CF reinforce (under vacuum, not for looks) later and permanently attach to the 44 deck.
I have actually put a legit dent into sub 20ah lipo packs (both 10ah 25c and 14ah 25c Tattu 6Sx2 12s Pack’s). They shouldn’t get hot enough to ‘smell’ that they are hot.
So, aluminum for a lipo heatsink lid. That’s why I did that. I’ll cerakote it or blue it later.
Glitzy fake blue carbon fiber vinyl wrap covers an amalgam urethane/epoxy/fiberglass riser I made. It looks like a bondo junkyard fix atm. I’ll perfect it later and pick grown-up/non-bro paint. But now, it’s finally shaped, functional, tough at nails, and gives me a surface to bolt an aluminum hood too.
These motors are the @S5300 battleHardened motors. Thanks to @mackann for the spare after I cracked a magnet. Extra classy.
No new or special specs here.
220kv 6374 x 4. Dual unities on @Janux-esk8 heat sinks.
Mechanical drive train/mounts/trucks/things that spin mostly @Psychotiller.
18t motor, 50t wheel (janux Pom jobs, 15mm. Does 12mm work? Maybe, but I haven’t broken a single 15mm belt in the time it took me to break 3-4 12mm belts. Maybe I’ve dialed in belt tension since then )
I have 240kv 6374s. I think the windings are fixable. Long story how I broke one of those cans. TLDR, always turn off remote if you aren’t riding.
I’m using 2 14ah 6s 25c batteries to race. I think I can fit all 4 14ah lipos for a big pack so I don’t have to worry about charging as frequently or heating up too fast.
Going to rewire everything with over spec’ed turnigy wire. Sydney finally convinced me to get off that amazon crap and make a bulk order from hobbyking (all the awg’s Sizes stocked ) of more wire than I’d like to admit to buying.
Yes, I know CF is conductive.
-using gtb2 moded remote
-meter pro unity plug in obvi
-YPG 12s UBEC for a claimed 20a output with several selectable voltages. Used for creature comforts. (Lights, usb charger)
-using double momentary Unity Power button switches, plan to actually be helpful and show what I’ll do to make it single button. (Again thanks to @mackann for how-to)
-perfect world, someone recommends the perfect smart BMS that can tolerate 200a discharge with reasonable shipping times, I win BJ, learn how to fly and disappear into The sunset.
Otherwise, will totally settle for: Board works, I don’t die racing, maybe throw in a diebiems for Battery telemetry (bypass discharge) and kicks if there is room.
