hi guys,
after i've seen the cool zzr 1400 modification sometime before, as a honda fan i want to make a nsr 500 out of the ducati desmosedici. i used the repsol honda nsr 500 kit from tamiya (number 14071). here is the work so far. the rider and the wheels are ready but the fairing still needs some paint work. i'll show you the final result when i've finished the bike.

Tesco's are now selling them for £19.99.

the bike is finished now. the only thing to do is to put the antenna into the rider as with the kyosho hor. i did't want to make a hole into the seatcowling.
here are the pics of the bike without the rider. sorry for the bad quality of my cellphone cam.

That looks really nice....

Where are you putting the battery, and is it easy access?

Very good work, I like that.

By the way I added some lead in the legs of the rider based on these threads...and wow..what difference that made in handling.
There are a lot of products on that site. Can someone give a link to the specific battery, or some clue how to find it?

I only got mine yesterday so it hasn't seen the outside world yet.

Does the electronics handle a 2s lipo directly without damaging it or do you need something to drop the voltage? I've only done a light search of the thread so far, so maybe I'm missing something. I have a couple of BECs I could try - including 5V/6V switchable ones. They're just linear regulators, as far as I can tell, because they get pretty warm.

For now, I think I'll just make up some more NiMH packs, unless someone knows where to get ready made ones at a reasonable price in the UK?

The closest match to the cells in the UK is www.component-shop.co.uk 210mAh 1/2 AAA (under Batteries->Radio control->Single cells):

1.2V 210mAh NiMH 1/2AAA Single Cell

22mm long x 10.3mm diameter with solder tags.
£0.80 each.
£0.74 discounted price for 10+
£0.68 discounted price for 50+

- price is around $1 per cell.

I'll just add some cardboard and tape for end caps and maybe some heat shrink.

Okay, I've skimmed through the thread and I see you can use 2s lipos with the stock bike, but you need to add lead, so I won't bother for now.

To save me some soldering, I ordered three of the 4.8V 210mAh 1/2AAA NiMH Square Battery Pack with a JST lead from here:

http://component-shop.co.uk/html/body_small_packs.html

and carefully sliced them so I could fold them flat, reversed the pins in the JST plugs and taped them up. They're a bit shorter but they fit snugly so that doesn't matter.

The reverse wiring is irritating. I made up a reversing adaptor lead so I could have the option of charging with my Apache 2030, and discharging through my watt meter with the cut off box that came with my Sky Scooter (which works very well).

The idea of reversing the wires in the ESC connector makes sense but I didn't see an easy way to do it, short of cutting and resoldering. I'll just keep these batteries and the reverser lead with the bike for now, and not mix them up with my other small NiMH packs.

I had a serious problem with the bike not responding to the transmitter when I tried it again today, which was cured by unplugging the crystal from the Tx and plugging it back in again. I'm still getting some interference - the throttle goes in little bursts when I'm not pulling the trigger. I guess there's a lot of stray 27MHz about though. People even have 27MHz doorbells.

So, I now have four batteries, including the stock one, all charged and ready to go. I took pictures of the batteries but I'm too lazy to get them off my camera at the moment.

I'll try to find an empty car park to try it out soon.
