Well, my Mercury 64 arrived from HobbyKing today. Wow, it's just a lovely object to behold. I have no airframe to fit it into yet and I really don't care, it's such a nice object I'm happy just to have it on display, even the wife was impressed !
Any suggestions for a good airframe that will be happy with the extra weight of the fan and possibly a 5s lipo are more than welcome.

I think an A10 powered by 2 of these beauties is a great idea !!
I think the sound would be amazing, nice one.

I got a couple of the 3700kv Mercury 64 from http://in2hobbies.com/rcstore/produc...products_id=80 and working on modifying an A10 to fit them. The casing is too large for the A10 foam nacelle compartment.

Hi EPF
I tested my two Mercury 64 3700kv at 5s 4000mah. The first fan ran with 3xfull throttle for each under 10sec. Great performance!
Then i testrun the other fan, wich smoked away at 60A/not full throttle.
I used the same lipo with only 64% capacity left.
Whats going on whith this fan? any idea?

Have you tried a pm?
I've got 4 mercuries and 2 of the old red mototurbines, never had a single problem so far. What was your ESC timing?

I got the fans from Lindinger in austria, they told me to send them back.

to Stuart:
I used the same ESC, an A-Turnigy85A SBEC with automatic timing. That worked at the other fan. The frequency is 8kHz.

A new Mercury 64 3700kv is on the way...
Lindinger makes a good job - 1 week from sending to have the new one in my hands!

Hi Stuart,
i was thinking about the timing of my ESCs. They have a automatic timing wich determines the optimum motor timing, low(7-22deg.) for 2 pole and high(22-30deg.) for 6 and more poles.
With the automatc timing the first fan ran without problem. Now i got the other(burnt out) fan and i will testrun it.
You are more experienced with this fans, would you recommend the automatic timing?

Thanx for your answer
Rudi
