  1. Goit the batteries set up and all the wiring / series / parallel adaptors made using the info from here, the battery performs brilliantly, they last ages way longer than the originals when they were new and 6kg lighter. One more question - What are people doing with the balance wires they are not very strong and I can imagine letting them flap about they wont last long. I would like to see a pic of someones completed battery pack to see how neat or not it looks. Mine currently looks a bit messy!
  2. Sorry to drag up a really old post but I am trying to work out the balance leads for the setup above, is the best solution to buy two parallel balance leads one for each bank of 3 batteries like in the link below or is there a better way? http://www.rc-hero.co.uk/jst-xh-parallel-balance-lead-5s-250mm-6xjst-xh-paraxh5s-6 Do these only need to be plugged in for charging or would you leave them plugged in and use it for the low voltage alarm when riding? I have two chargers for up to 6s batteries and am planning on charging 5s3p I have 6 of these https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-battery-5000mah-5s-20c-lipo-pack-xt-90.html I am fine with what's in the diagram but not 100% on the balance leads for charging as I am new to lipo. Thanks.
  3. Not much choice for bigger tyres. What 3.5 tyre are you looking at? People bang on about the acu tyre rules if your going to do any events, never taken my lad to one so not sure whats what with the rules.
  4. Something that has become very popular at enduro is a shorter than normal race and a practice after. This could be done at trials, 2 laps "real trial" with a time limit of say 2 hours then a 2 hour practice to try any section you like, practice your favourite section from your own route, try some harder ones, whatever you fancy, no scores taken just have a play. Its a good way of getting the riders who only like practice to do a proper event. There are loads of people out practicing every week who never do Trials.
  5. I went and took my little lad along we enjoyed it I must admit I would have preferred to see more mud as to me uk trials = Mud, world round should have terrain that matches the country its held in.
  6. thanks for that gwhy. greg , its a pain in the ass, I am still hoping the ideal hobby king batteries come in stock soon, not sure what the compromise will be if they don't.
  7. I don't know a lot about these batteries, read about them on ebike forums they prefer them over the hobby king batteries. I am going to get a decent battery before summer for my lads 36v oset hobby king have been out of stock for my ideal batteries fir ages so ive been looking for alternatives.
  8. Has anyone made a battery out of something like this? Prices seem to be coming down and they are more popular on ebikes than hobby king model batteries. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/E-bike-Battery-11600mAh-11-6Ah-36V-40x-Panasonic-NCR18650PF-10S4P/262852349786?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D41433%26meid%3D40694652e480425a968a3e6bc0083e59%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D361904339635
  9. He looks a similar size to my 4 year old who is on the 16, def better to be on a slightly bigger bike than a smaller one if they are confident enough.
  10. Agreed. The bms and how to make charging simple is the most complicated part.
  11. The 10s appeared good at first glance but all the extras ruin it on cost. I'm still hoping the other batteries come back into stock before spring.
  12. thanks for the reply, I have nothing for lipo at the moment so am not steered in any direction to suit a existing set up.
  13. Just checked and these have appeared on hk https://hobbyking.com/en_us/zippy-compact-5800mah-10s-25c-lipo-pack.html Pair of those in parallel could be good?
