WOW, and with all the talk of home built brushless motors I'm getting tempted. Some might find the soldering a little on the tricky side though. I keep thinking about the possibility of minature versions for the slowfly scene. I've got some nice neo disk magnets, could be interesting.

I love the smell of soldering resin in the morning :-)

Well... this might be useful to people that do speak German (I think thats what it is...) But since this is an English text forum... it would be appropriate to have a translation of the text available for the people who come to the forum.

I'm not saying speak English or nothing... I'm saying that this forum caters to those who do speak, read, write English. If this were a forum for people that speak, read, write French... then a French translation would be appropriate.

Hi PropBreaker,

Firstly, it's a service. You're free to ignore it, it's only a link, not a huge post.
Secondly, there are enough people in this forum who can at least read (quite) a bit of German: UK's, Scandinavians, Germans, Swiss, Austrians and last but not least the Dutch, famous for their modesty ;-) .
Thirdly, I think it may be an important breakthrough for electric flight, just like the diy torquemax/lrk/brushless outrunners I did some posts about. Important enough to share this knowledge trans-atlantic/trans-channel/trans-pacific/trans-whatever-barrier-there-may-be. Isn't that what the internet is all about?

Maybe, in a few months, you'll see in this forum a enthusiastic report or translation from e.g. Graham above, stating he uses this diy controller, it's a beauty, he loves it, he wants to marry it, he wants to have children and hey, if you need help building it, contact him.

But you do have a point too, in future I will mention the language more clearly.

For those of you who cannot read German you may find this helpfull: http://babelfish.altavista.com/translate.dyn
It does not translate perfectly, but it is good enough to help you out. Just copy/paste the addresses above into the website field, select German to English and away you go. (Thanks for the link MrBungle)

And ...,

Fourthly, it's not a link to a site of my own.
Fifthly, it does have an English version! As I wrote directly after the link!

And Propbreaker,

With a name like Huber (fnhuber@..) there are bound to be some traces left of the old German language in your genes Or is my assumption about your origins wrong?

I figured that was marine heritage. Wouldn't it be fisch???
Anyway, today's exchange rate (6/1/01) was about 2.31 to the dollar, so 140/2.31 = $60.61 US Dollars and 50/2.31 = $21.65 US Dollars.

Hi,

perhaps you dont know that "brown trout" is a joke in German. There are "blue trout" which is a trout that is treated with vinegar while cooking and becomes blue. Then there is "trout a la miller's wife" which is a fried/baked trout. "brown trout" (Forelle braun) is german slang for a fried *herring*

Ok, slightly off-topic!

Regards, Jochen

…I told you I flunked German.

-fish<--not a red herring! fried or otherwise
