Default Re: New Dream Builder Biker

Yup KiM, I'm coming to my senses. I'm well aware of cheap and light lithium batteries, HK brushless outrunners, Turnigy speed controllers, etc.

I did that experiment of using a brushless motor on a drill to drive another brushless motor. It didnt work. The only thing I got was jitters as the drill wound down to a stop. I'm guessing that the bigger motor on the drill is so mismatched that EMF just locks it up(That's why speed controllers). I'll have to wind another motor just like the one I tried to drive and see if nearly identical motors could work.
