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.

Motor for Bernhard's Jenny

Aero-naut JennyPosted by xilsoe Mar 08, 2012 09:05:39
Bernhard is also building a Jenny. He got stuck on motor, so I bought one for him when I ordered motors for my PT-15. He wanted it to be an inrunner to allow for water cooling, so I found an inrunner with a low kV rating and presumably high torque. This should make for running a quite large propeller, at lower speed, which should be more efficient.

I took a few pictures of the motor. It seems very well constructed.


Motor name: Turnigy 540L V-Spec Inrunner with impeller

Specifications:
Dimension: 58mm x 36mm, 72mm(with shaft)
Weight: 173g (kv1025) (not including connectors)
Diameter of shaft: 5mm
Length of front shaft: 14mm
Battery: 3-4 Cell 4S/14.8V
RPM: 1025kv
Max current: 40A


The motor should be about the same size as a size 600 motor. I am looking forward to see how the motor performs in Bernhard's boat. I expect it to run quite well smiley

Aero-naut Jenny acquired

Today my aero-naut Jenny finally arrived. I bought it on e-bay Germany. No problem.

It will probably be some time (Next year) before I get to build this boat. After a brief look, the kit looks nice and I am looking forward to build it.

Two other guys from the model boat club will also be building this boat so I am looking forward to see what they come up with.

One of the guys has a build log at rc-groups here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1525470
