Lite Machines web Site update


They just did a web site update on the new Corona heli.If you download the Manual it looks very good.The only question it looks they have two types of motors. Electro-Fusion 7 for 7 cells and the Electro-Fusion 6 for 6 cells.So what would the best type and who makes the motors.On the spec for 7 Fusion motor, 150W and 22,700 rpm.

When I looked at the manual, they prefer the 7 cell motor vs. the 6-cell.

I just got this heli a few days ago but went with a Kyosho Atomic Force motor based on discussions I found here. I've been having speed controller heat problems with this motor. If I had to do it again, I would get the motor and controller they recommend and sell. The motor is a Reedy and the controller is a castle creations Pegasus 35H I believe.

In the interest of simplicity, I bought LiteMachine's motor and speed controller with my Corona. It came with the 7 Cell motor. The 6 cell option wasn't listed anywhere when I ordered, and the first I heard about it was in the manual.

The Speed Controller is from Castle Creations, and I think you're right that it's the Pegasus 35 (LiteMachines has their own label on it though, so I can't be sure). The same holds true for the motor...it's got a LiteMachines label on it so I don't know what model it really is. The supplied pinion is 9T.

Now all I have to do is build the thing.

Pegasus 35 Question


The Pegasus 35 has a BEC on it.So would the motor cut out, and crash the heli.I thought you would want one without BEC like the Jeti 300 controller.

There are 2 versions of the P35. 1 is the standard with a LVC (low voltage cutoff). The other is a P35(H) without a LVC made for heli use.

They both have BEC which has nothing to do with the LVC

Hi Fred

I went to there web site and there is no Pegasus 35(H). I this a custom made controller. Looked up here in Canada can only find the P35 with BEC.
