Yeah, I did those calcs as well. I'm going to start off with 8s, 2 lots of 4s parallel. if i can control it i'll move up from there. my goal is 12s. Just being different. If the motor...
I haven't tested this yet as I'm still waiting for the Program card from OSE. It should arrive any day now.
I'm sorry about the messy cables, still trying to work out how to make it all neat,...
I emailed the guy and he's running a Leopard brushless with an after market esc, he's also running the batteries in parallel. As you guys have said the Spartan is a handful with 6s in series, I think...
I realised after I hit Post that I should have said in Series.
I know there is a guy called rocket honda who's running 12s parallel. Is any one else running this successfully? If so, how?
If there is anyone in Sydney that wants to catch up for some rc boat fun at Scarborough Pond, Barton Street Kogorah.
Send me a message.
I'm using the TQi with an iPhone 4S on my Spartan Traxxas. The last 3 times I have taken the boat out I squeeze the throttle. All is good until I go past 3/4 throttle, then the speed dies...
I agree, is two completely separate cooling systems. Dual pick up in the rudder. One going to the ESC and the other to the motor, with separate exits from the hull. But if you can't wait for the dual...
If anyone one is running a mamba monster in there Spartan, would you mind sharing what you set up is?
(I just bought a Mamba Monster pack with 1406 5700kv 4 pole with Mamba Max Pro ESC. ESC runs 6s...
I'm in Sydney.
Has anyone had a deformed prop?
I took my Spartan out the other day for a run. The conditions where calm with a few (but not many, just enough to add some fun), waves (about 2-4inches...
I just read up on Coils and Poles. I understand that an increase in Poles and Coils increases the amount of balance in motors as they become bigger in size, but this also increases the...
I just took delivery of my new receiver and TQ1 controller with iPod/iPhone dock.
Just wonder if any one has fitted the telemetry on a Spartan. If so which sensors did you get? Is the...
I know we all talk about prop pitches, lipo batteries and different ESC's. But does anyone know which motor is the best for our Spartans. I'm running the factory Castle Creations, 1800kv...
What a great thread guys. I'm not sure I have the confidence to balance a prop. I'm pretty good at blunting knives in the kitchen, I don't like my chances with props.
I can't give any...
Yep. Apparently he builds for other people and has for his own high rpm nitro boats.
I think I'm going to give it a go. Just after Christmas I'll do a post on it.
I'm waiting on my parts...
I'm just in the process of upgrading shaft to a thicker one. We have a guy here in Sydney who makes them. He says I should get rid of the sleeve in the copper tubing. He recommends...
Are there any Spartans in Sydney that are up for a meet?
They are the numbers I came up with. I just couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the numbers.
I think I need to get a different prop!
I've had my boat for 2 weeks. Already upgraded to Gen Ace 40c 11.1v 5000mah and have the same problem with Chine. At 3/4 throttle the boat starts shaking. Admittedly I haven't checked or...
Sorry if I sound like an idiot, but I can't work out which motor I'm running from factory. Are the 540xl and the Velineon 3500 the same motor?
I want to try and work out how much RPM I'm...
