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.

This blog is open for comments so feel free to leave a comment.

Phantom ready again :)

Monday I received the spare parts for Möwe and for my Phantom. I haven't done anything regarding Möwe yet, but I have installed the coupling in my Phantom. The coupling is: R1445 Robbe Flexible Coupling 3.2-4mm. This fits nicely on the motor with the 3,2mm insert, but I had to make a 4mm to 3mm bushing for the coupling to fit the propeller shaft. Not a big deal just a piece of 4mm brass tube that was split as the bushing that comes along.

Yesterday I tried it out. At first I thought there was something wrong but then it started behaving nicely smiley Perhaps it needed a little running in? I do believe it has become more quiet and less vibration is transferred to the hull smiley

I also decided to try out the amp/temp sensor extension that I have bought for my Quanum/turnigy telemetry system. I couldn't try the Amp sensor at the connectors are incompatible. The temperature sensor did however work nicely, and it is nice to know how hot the motor really is smiley I don't want to burn another motor like I did in the Slo-mo.
