Hi Martin and M.Abramowicz
I'd like to send you greetings from russian drivers!
We are only begining to use GM speed controllers and motors, but we are already inspired buy them!
It's all started with my friend, who is visiting Germany very often. He bought first motors (GM Pro 17.5) to try them for new stock class we are going to make.
Currently we have only one stock class, 10.5t LiPo2s, and it's too fast for beginners.
So as we liked GM motors very much I read alot about GM and decided to buy Genius 120 fw7.2 for my stock motor DualSky Track&Field 10.5. It took more then one month for it to get to Russia, but finaly it was here.
Having not much expirience with programming GM speed controller, I used settings wich were published at h_ttp://demonpowerproducts.co.uk/product_info.php?cPath=92_144&products_id=3871
Mode 8 produced lot of heat even on free running, so I set (with transmiter) factory mode 3 and modified it as written. It produced heat also, but i set Reserved 2 to 16. (Additional timing only at full throttle), set ratio to 9.0(previously was 6.0) and whent for race.
I asked my mate to check motor temperature from time to time driving to him. Unfortunately he has not much expirience and when I understood that motor is too hot, it was too late/ It was not yet burned but i think the windings were damaged.
So for next race i set program without additional timing. I drove about one lap and understood that motor is burning.
As I understand, my chineese motor is not sutable to use with GM Genius and all problems i got were because it's rubbish motor
, so i asked my friend to bring GM Pro 10.5 motor #97305. But unfortunately they are not avaluable at the moment, so he will bring GM Pro 10.5 #97290
Also I asked him to buy rotor with fan for that motor #97233.1
Also i'd like to note that i expirienced some issue with my KoPropo EX-10 40 MHz. I had jitter on throttle and steering when car wasmore than 5 meter away runing. tried two different receivers and several freq. but nothing helped. I took 2.4 GHz module and receiver and it became OK.
Now I have some questions
1. Are my proposals about burned motor right, or i did just wrong setup?
2. May the radio bug was caused because the motor was overloaded and produced some extra freq.? Have you tried to use GM Genius 120 with 40MHz radio system?
3. I understand that you wrote much about programming, but maybe you can make .txt file (as the one several pages before for 13.5 LiPo) with settings for the GM motor i'm going to use? (10.5t fw7.2 LiPo2s)
4. My friend is still in Germany. Maybe you can recomend some online or offline shop that store #97305 motor, so he can buy it?
Thanks for your help!
