E-Flight ASCENT set up ! Very happy !

Max temp on brushed speed 400 ?ASCENT Report This Post | | Revisions: 2 (Post No. 1)


I could not get a good search on this subject ??? mine was running about 120 -- to ,, 130 f ..Question is what is the maximum
temp for a speed 400 electric or any brushed motor ??

Today I mounted and ran and flew my Ascent with MP JET 3.8 gear box (the inline one ) mated to a hobby lobby rocket .
400 ,1500 Kokams 7.4 volt ..It pulled about 8.5 amps swinging a graupner 10 .8 .. folder ,(, turned the shaft down to fit )

Man did it climb +++ 40 degree's .It weighs about 19 Oz and is Surprisingly Quiet I had heard they were noisy .... Not mine

I used a 50 /50 mix of wheel bearing grease and STP + a little dab of graphite ,, super slick ! The STP helps keep the grease from flinging off the gears ,,
I got 6 + great pulls to 400 feet + ,, and a few only took 20 to 30 seconds to get to spec out !~

Very pleased with this set up !

Sounds nice, there's a great thread on the Ascent over in the Electric Sailplane forum.
