Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

I just got pointed to this video yesterday - it might help to visualize how the TSDZ2 clutches work:

Re: TSDZ2 52v battery on 48v motor with 860c and OSF?

For what it's worth, that's the combination I just purchased (48v motor + 52v battery + mbrusa's OSF). Works great. In the menu, you set the motor to 48v & the battery to 52v.

Re: Full suspension mountain bike Friction Drive

Hopefully not too dumb or OT question for someone who might know... Can the FlipSky Mini FSESC 4.20 (which is labelled for 3-13S LiPo) be used with Li-Ion batteries - the ones built from 18650 cells that are often sold for e-bikes? I've been playing with a build using a lesser ESC and a 6S LiPo batt...

Re: TSDZ2 OSF for all displays, VLCD5-VLCD6-XH18, LCD3, 860C.

Slightly off-topic, but still relevant... Does anyone know of a way to flash the APT 850C/860C displays from Linux? The only flashing software I've been able to find is Windows-based . I know that I can flash the TSDZ2 firmwware from Linux , and I'm hoping that someone has a way to avoid Windows for...

Re: TSDZ2 OSF for all displays, VLCD5-VLCD6-XH18, LCD3, 860C.

I'm contemplating a TSDZ2 purchase to use with this great firmware, and I have a question about the 860C display version: Do user-modified settings remain intact if the firmware is updated to a newer version? Unless I'm missing something, it seems like it would be a HUGE chore to have to go into ea...

Re: TSDZ2 OSF for all displays, VLCD5-VLCD6-XH18, LCD3, 860C.

Most settings u can change in the configurator so u upload that to the motor and display, so no need to change a lot manually on the display. Thank you for the reply, but from what I have read, it appears that the 850C & 860C doesn't use the configurator. The firmware files are pre-built . Am I...

Re: Kepler Bottom Bracket Friction Drive For Sale (Finally)

@Kepler, Any suggestions on what to do when the motor just doesn't seem to have enough "oomph" to kick up to the tire when its resting spot is off of the tire? I've tried adjusting the gravity spring to get the motor as close as I can to the tire, but it just doesn't seem to want to kick u...

Re: Commuter Booster - <1kg Friction Drive

Now that this topic seems to have re-ignited a bit, I have a question for anyone who might be able to answer: Would it be possible to 3D print the clamp/pivot bearing that Adrian made out of acetal? Would either ABS or PLA be strong enough to handle the forces that would be involved? Would anyone wi...

Re: Commuter Booster - <1kg Friction Drive

...I realised that I don't think taking this project commercial is a good idea. Adrian, Wow, that's a tough one. I'm sorry to hear that you don't have the time or resources to make a commerial product. I presume you've already considered the Kickstarter route...that would likely get you the funding...

Re: Commuter Booster - <1kg Friction Drive

Adrian, Are you still planning a "next generation" product for sale, or have you given up on the idea? I don't have the metal- and delrin-working skills to make your bracket, and my attempts using wood in place of the delrin kept shattering. I'd still like to have one, but I'll need to pur...

Re: Commuter Booster - <1kg Friction Drive

The answer is to put your button on the analog signal of the POT. Could be as easy as cutting the centre leg, and putting the button in line. I am sure I documented this mod on this thread somewhere. If you are lucky it will be in the index page I start on the first post of the thread. Two thing to...

Re: Commuter Booster - <1kg Friction Drive

Adrian/anyone who can answer... I'm starting an R/C friction drive build with a similar architecture and goals to Adrian's Commuter Booster build. I'm at the point of starting to test on-bike, but I don't have a high-buck e-Bike specific controller to use. I'm using a HobbyKing ESC and a servo teste...
