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.

Möwe update

Robbe MöwePosted by xilsoe Jul 30, 2011 14:39:33
Today I got the receiver for Möwe. A Spektrum MR200. I was expecting it to be waterproof like the MR3000 as it is a marine receiver, but it seems to be only splash proof, so I should probably secure it further against water.

Further some words on the electronics I have chosen.

I decided to buy a Graupner brushless ESC along with the boat: Best-Nr: 7232. It is designed for up to 4S LiPo and 18A. The BEC delivers 5,5V and 2A. I programmed it today. It seems to be a nice ESC, comparable to the Robbe ROXXY 9XX series. As the motor rotation can be reversed, I am thinking of soldering the motor wires to ESC. This means lighter weight and eliminates connector failures.

For battery I am going to use LiPo. I have some small 2S and 3S.

I also have a Robbe/Futaba S3106 servo lying around. That might go in. Otherwise I might use one from my Lama heli.

As it can bee seen in the pictures below, I started painting. The chosen red colour is Revell 322.
