Re: Re: Re: Speed 400 6volts only!

When I first started pylon I was told speed 400 6 volts and thats what we have used in the past.
6V motors became standard because the 4.8V motors burn up too fast for most people to consider the event to still be "economy." I never saw 6V in the rules anywhere, except for some of the stock classes (usually with a 150sqin min area). I don't really care because I use a regular 6V motor in my SkaT. I was just trying to keep things as simple as possible. Besides, several people are working on non-6V setups now that we have new props and cells available. I hate to stifle development.

Anyway, I'm satisfied with saying that the motor can only be a 6V... but we'll have to work on the honor system, as we do with the batteries.

have fun,
