Dan,

Brushless systems are generally more efficient than their brushed count-parts... I would expect you to get longer run times with brushless than with brushed given the same battery pack.

Would a brushless system give longer runtime with older cells, than a brushed set-up?

Thanks!

Dennis,

No, you should be able to just drop either the 12.3 or the 13.0 mm rotor into your motor without needing any extra parts. All of the Velociti motors shipped with the large front bearing which the sintered rotors require.

If we have some time we will try to dig up a cyclone around here and see what we can find out about it!
Then your engineer should be even more surprised that it doesn't work with a GT7! Should be easier for him to dig up one of those.

Perhaps there is something different about HRS with FASST, compared with the previous HRS?

Yes, we will have to take a look at it and see what's going on... although he said that there shouldn't be a difference between the one touch programming on the GT7, GTX, and GTB.

Thanks for the info. Will a sintered rotor run cooler? which rotor (12.3/13.0) would you recomend for a 4wd application
Thanks again.

ok Steve so am I on the right track that a BL motor is basically a sinusoidally wound three phase motor driven by three sinewaves input to the phase A,B, and C inputs, shifting them 120 deg from each other? the sinewaves generated by PWM?, a DC supply would be too inefficient IMO. then using an electromagnetic resolver to sense the rotors angular position?>

Overflow:

It's really gonna depend on your personal preference... I seem to like the 13.0 mm rotor most of the time.

Steve,

If I have 145000 xmas lights at an average of .5watts each that runs for 8 hours a day for 45 days. Plus a xmas tree with 1050 lights that average .5watt each that are on for 5-6 hours a day for 45 days. Plus a nativity scene that averages 300watts for 8 hours for 45 days.

How much will that effect my electric bill in Canadian Dollars?

Thanks in advance....
-Shookie <><

OH DENNIS...Better get ready.....Shookie is starting to feel better...SUCKA...

Shookie,

If you run all those lights all that time you might not be able to buy that Xbox 360 for Christmas

Steve, 3 questions for you:

1) If cutting through 2" aluminum plate with a sawzall, what would be a good TPI to start with?

2) How long would it take to cut through 14' of 2" aluminum plate?

3) How loud of a bang does a 400# chunk of aluminum make when it falls 6' and lands on a flooring surface made of 1" thick steel?

I would have to wager about an 8.5 with the stock 12.3 mm rotor... if you are running the 13.0 mm rotor try about 7.6
