Wiring up a brushless motor
November 24, 2010
So I was in awe at jklug80's "cheater" pinewood derby car and this year my son's pack is doing an anything goes class for the dads. My thought was to use a ducted fan to push the car but I can't figure out how to wire it up.
It's a brushless ducted fan for rc planes and it requires an esc that receives a signal for how much "throttle" to shoot to the motor. So how would I wire it up on the same set of switches he used? Basically I want it either off, or all in. I completely understand Jklug80's use of switches, I just don't know how to wire the esc up to it.
Also, do you guys and gals have an idea on a cheap, lightweight batter to supply either 11.1 V, 29.8 amps or 12.6 V, 35.3 amps?
Or am I asking for a miracle?
Thanks for all your input in advance, this site is awesome.
