Question
FET on the Kyosho Minium board

Hi, all.

I finally can view the part number marking of the FET motor controller on the Kyosho Minium board, like this one: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/attac...mentid=1972229
It says AERA 18. As I dont have acess to my book of transistors and FETs, someone got it and dont returned it yet, can someone here tell me what FET is this one?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Chispas
I used a IRLML2502 on mine and it seems to work fine.

mcross - is the amp max. higher for this one, as compared to the original - or just a replacement?

Hi.

Thanks Mike
I too have the IRLML2502 and its specifications say that it is capable of 3 Amps plus, but i want to know the specifications of the FET on the Minium board.
I suspect that he can sustain 2 Amps but i can't get back my book about FETs in order to decode the AERA 18 markings on it.

I just used it as a replacement, I don't know if it will handle more power, or what the original was. There's some more info here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1004449

Mike, thanks for the link

It enlighted me and brought back memories when i stacked FETs on the Mini-Z boards. I will try that to use with the more powerful motors without removing the FET from the board.
Now only have to get an 7mm SS Blue on 4:1 gearbox this side of the pond.

Thanks again, folks.
