Hi Gamba,

just seen this
www.heli-planet.com/timing.html

the last sentence here

"Ein nicht optimales Timing ist manchmal gekennzeichnet durch ein "Kreischen"
des Motors. Wenn man dann das Shift Timing geringfügig verändert, wird man sehen,
ob das Geräusch besser oder schlechter wird. Hier geht Probieren über Studieren.
Allerdings ist Vorsicht geboten und man sollte immer nur kleine Schritte machen.
.... "

my translation

If timing is not optimal, you can hear a "screech" of the motor.
When you chang timing-shifting slightly, you will hear if the noise gets better
or worse. You have to test it, be careful, make only small steps ...

With "screech" I have to think of your problem ... maybe timing is the reason.

best regards

Exactly... I think you are right. But I also think the load is too big. And in my case, the two problems may have a connection. Time will tell. The new propeller has finally arrived. But I'm on holiday in Italy with the family now. So it has to wait ;-)

Hi again.. I've been using MGM controllers too for many years... expensive but very versitile. However, the manual states clearly ( as clearly as their half english can explain) that you can only control ONE motor with one controller.

From what ive seen of that manual it looks excellent , the sort of thing that is missing with my ESC , cant seem to find decent info anywhere I'm looking ( obviously the wrong places :-) ) but even at a glance that MGM manual seemed to fill in a lot of gaps that can be taken for granted or missunderstood . that's for posting that

Sorry, but I think it's irrelevant to talk about "professional" controllers in this thread (whatever professional means in this context). The Eone project is about a 12090 motor and an Alien ESC... and about getting this combination to work. This forum is, among many things, about gathering data and knowledge on different DIY projects and equipment.

I have not yet seen any data confirming that you should use "professional" equipment. It is possible that some of us will come to the same conclusion, that it is cheaper and "smarter" in the long run to buy some expensive equipment from the start. But we're not there yet. We are still collecting data on the somewhat much cheaper "China" equipment.

It's my impression that most people in this forum are here because they think it's fun to make their own EPPG machine. Not only to save money. As time goes by, hopefully there will be enough data that new DIY people don't have to make the same expensive experiences as we are doing now. They can just collecting all the knowledge from this forum and choose the right DIY project that suits them best.

Hi again,

Just reading the threads I caution about getting "our knickers in a knot" over what is "commercial" or not I welcome any comments, especially from anyone who has real experience. Blatant selling is of course relegated to the business corner, but I've not seen that yet. I can also see some opportunities for members to make things for other members and I certainly welcome THAT, as I do not have the time, skill or equipment for some things on my wish list.

Regarding controllers, as I mentioned previously, I have blown up 2 from China and two from MGM. It really isn't hard to do. I do hope that our group finds a slick combo of motor controller that does the job without breaking the bank. It's an exciting path to be on, and there is NOTHING quite like the first time your powertrain boots up (ok maybe oral sex is an exception.. but not by much)...

Power on!!!

Hi there I cant official speak for Bo but I believe he is busy making parts to supply E-one kits but this has to be done outside his regular Business .. ya gotta earn before you play :-)

The forum is very much alive, but as this sport is so weather dependant sometimes it dictates the speed of developments for each individual project .. for my part my project is still waiting for the electrical items to be returned form my supplier ( investigating so issues I have had ) , they recently moved premises so I will have to wait a little bit longer till they settle in before pushing for my parts to be returned and then i'll begin to post update :-)

Oh yes. The Eone project is still alive. But "Wannabeaflyer" is right. I am self-employed and have been very busy with work. But that only explains why I have not moved on with my own Eone project.

Another and much more serious problem is, that I am dependent on parts made by my Eone partner and friend who is the owner of the CNC workshop. I'm only the designer of the Eone. He has been embarking on a huge expansion of his machine shop.

Anyway, I'm not happy with the situation myself, but It's hard for me to do anything about it because it's not a traditional customer-supplier relationship we have going, but a Eone partnership. Sorry !

Regards Bo Gamba

Hi Bo - did you try out the new Prop, I remember reading about you having it on order but not seeing an update on it.
Have you tried or thought of trying a TriBlade prop? I just seen a vid by Tucker Gott flying the Tornado 280 with a triple - I know very little about such things, remember reading about lots of controversy over 2 blades versus 3 - seems to work nice on that 280!
Best Regards, Patrick
