Twin Speed 600 set up
I recently tried running two standard speed 600 can type motors (8.4v) each with it's own 2000mah battery pack and speed controller. The speed controllers were then connected through a Y lead to the reciever.
At full throttle, the 2 produced 156 watts each, but when I tried to transition from full throtle to idle, only one motor reponded proportionally to throttle movement, the other went to an idle speed. As I bought the throttle up again, one motor adavnced whilst the other remined at idle, until I reached full throttle, when they both delivered full power again.
The interesting part was, when I took one of the battery packs off, but left the whattmeter connected to the motor, I found it was actually showing half the voltage from the other pack, but no amps!
This arrangement should work and should give me fully proportional throttle control on both engines. I have seen the same set up in the Koyosho Learjet and on a balsacraft Blenheim.
Can any one help please? This is leaving me very frustrated.
