TOPIC: Launch assist V02

Launch assist V02 5 months 12 hours ago #987

Hi for all,
I give a try and share some pics and info about my project. Based on 12090 outrunner, Dlux esc, 18650 battery pack (14s10p) and reduction drive. Goal is a launch assit unit to catch thermals and ridge lift. Dudek Komfort harness, low hook in point to get weigth shift. The frame is made from carbon fiber composite. Supporting arms and outer ring now aluminium and later change it to carbon too. Arms can fit with push button springs, very simple and fast locking method.
Now the project is slowed down because I need some money for the battery pack.
Meanwhile I'm making small parts and details and hope time will come soon. :-)
If anyone is interested to the carbon frame I got the mold and can make more backplates. You can make the supporting arms and outer ring for yourself, that is not a big deal but the backplate need more time I know.
Regards, Roland

Hi Rodrigo,
motor is 130kv, reduction 2,25. But not tested yet, got here some other pulleys so I can change the reduction ratio.

New cage on the way. between 2,5-3 kg so it is a bit heavy :-) Can save some weigth with carbon tubes but first it is made from aluminium.

Today I made a small insert to hold my temp sensor. I know this is not the best way to keep eye on the motor temp but is is good for reference.
