Hi guys, got my case together today so I charged the 8S 25C Turnigy LiPos using a charger supplied by Hyena. I then took it for a spin, the details are as follows:
Weather 18oC wind from the south at 33 kmh gusting to 43 kmh (normal for Windy-alla) - ride was about 10% into the wind, 10% tail wind and the rest cross wind on mainly flat ground.
27.9 A max, 888W max, 31.3V min, total distance 3.85 km, 1.6Ah used, 51.4Wh consumed, which is 13.35 Wh / km.
Starting volts was 33.2, end is 32.01V with a max diff between the 16 cells is 12mV. I checked the tyre pressures after the ride, 23.5f
- should be 40 min to 65 max.
Max speed was probably about 35kmh and the bike could have gone faster just my legs wouldn't! It's worth noting that into the wind, I could get max spin in 4th gear (24kph?) so this is good.
I'll finish painting the case next weekend (
) and post pics if you're interested.
Edit: and the Hobby King Oz warehouse now stocks LiPo - woo hoo!
