I've been flying R/C on and mainly off for the last 25 years. I prefer sailplanes and electric assist means I can now spend a good hour flying on one charge. Much more relaxed when you don't have to worry about charging in a field etc. 8) I too have one of the mid size electric heli's. Great fun in ...

Team Works Karting in Birmingham have some great karts. They look like they use an Etek type motor on a 48V system.

Hi Paul, When you say "12Kw from the battery ought to give you a 60mph cruise on the flat." am I right in assuming this is not the power out of the motor, just the electrical power in? I only ask because D & D are quoting power out of their ES-31 Sepex motor taking into account electri...

Hi Nikki, What sort of costs have you found for an AC motor and controller? The best I can find is Metric Mind and Evisol. Thier AC motor and inverters are £6K plus batteries. This is 3 or 4 times the cost of a DC setup. http://www.metricmind.com/index1.htm http://www.evisol.com/ac-motors.html Se...

Hi Martin, The Netgain Impulse 9 motor is very nice, but I believe it's at its most efficient at high voltages 144V, with a max voltage of 170.
