A few words about the powertrain that will be used on the trike. As previously mentioned, it will consist of Matt Shumaker’s single stage Edrive kit with a 4kW (5kW Peak) astroflight Astro 3210 Brushless Motor. This electric motor, when … Continue reading
It appears this may be the most complex part of this project. Thus far everything is very much plug and play. That is, each major component be it the motor, controller etc can be attached and plugged directly to each … Continue reading
I finally settled on the batteries that will be used for the eTrike. They are the same ZIPPY Flightmax 5000mAh 6S1P 15C from hobby city that I have previously mentioned. For those not versed in battery speak, 6S is 6 … Continue reading
Following on from my last post I thought I would include the expected cost of the project as it currently stands. This is really a snapshot of where I am currently at. The prices and parts charge all the … Continue reading
I thought I would take some outside breamshots tonight. For comparison I did a side by side shots next to a friends car. The images are in this order: The car headlights only The car and wide beam lights of the trike … Continue reading
Here are some beam shots for those interested. The garage door is approx 2m away. These shots will have to do until the weather clears up and I can take it for a ride. The images are taken in the … Continue reading
Well today I stopped by a factory estate close to my Uni and picked up the pats for the sub $US20 bike light and work light project. I got 4 new MCPCB mounted XP-G LED’s (Q5 bin) and a single … Continue reading
