Had anyone else noticed the TBLE-02 (#45057) 60A release at this years hobby show? It looks like a budget version of the TBLE-01. TamiyaUSA.
Priced pretty good too for a sensored system.
~$50 for the ESC
~$65 for one of the compatible 14T, 16T or 18T TBLM motors (about the right range for most of the basic Tamiya's and vintage re-res). $115 for a sensored 'combo' is quite affordable.
One thing I did notice when looking around at information on it, that there is still no low voltage cut off for Li-Po (6.0v), but only for Li-FE (5.0v). Shame... could have been a good competition to the EX-Run (and similar) full size 540 sensored systems.
I'm sure everyone knows the famous Microsoft keyboard error message. It happens on just about every desktop computer if you turn it on without a keyboard attached. It comes up and says: "Error, No Keyboard... Press F1 to continue" Huh? The smart people that think these things up!
Well, it occured to me tonight that my Futaba transmitter does a similar thing. When the battery voltage becomes too low, it beeps like crazy, flashes every LED and vibrates non-stop until you turn it off... Now wouldn't that use up that limited amount of power that is left even quicker? I've searched the manual and the settings and can not find any way to turn off this overkill warning.
If you've found a similar RC related 'stupid' error, please do post it.
Started working on a new project a few days ago and think it deserves a build thread to document the process.
The build is of a very special Hornet/Grasshopper chassis unlike any made before. The clever ones out there will see what makes it so special as the build progresses, but I'm not giving anything away until someone else spots it.
First part of the build is the steering knuckles and an adaptation of the CRP FX-10 C-hubs. Parts have been modelled in RhinoCAD ready to be cut from aluminium stock with my little Tonsen CNC.
I'll have to do up a 'prize' for the one who guesses first what makes this build so different.
Hope everyone enjoys this build, and I'll update each time I have something else done with either some CAD captures or photos of the actual parts to show.
