Next, machine an aluminium case to replace the silicone one and I know there’s at least one court case that will stop in it’s tracks :wink:

Do you need an additional heat sink for them?? I thought they didn’t get that hot? I haven’t powered mine up yet to test… hopefully a bit later today will get some current through it heh


#1627

Always better to dispel heat where and when you can


#1628

Yeah, but that’s going to get expensive. There’s also a BT module inside – a metal casing is going to be troublesome. Most of the heat comes out of the bottom according to @Deodand, so just heat sinking the bottom should suffice.


#1629

o3o you bet

Ill pm you


#1630

Oh ignore me haha. It was just a joke


#1631

Mike, there’s 4 blind m3 mounting holes on the bottom of the Unity. Why not just mount it on a bigger aluminum plate?


#1632

that’s exactly what i’m doing :slight_smile:

i’m adding a flange so that it can be surface mounted with the bottom exposed to air. the unity will sit on top of it


#1633

Nah, it runs fine. 40 amp battery max doesn’t seem to do much. Never bad to lose all you can though for those sustained rides.

Edit: In the raptor it is attached to a plate. So haven’t tested without.

This was in 5 sprints to about top speed. At 3 Celsius outside though.


#1634

Can anyone confirm for me the hall sensor jst’s are they 2mm? Trying to source some to change over the ones on my tb motor which are too small sadly :frowning: can I run them unsensored in the mean time?


#1635

Yes you can run unsensored, might want to give a hip thrust or a kick push to get started from a dead start

Wish I had known I needed them as it’s $60 shipping to Australia for 2 cables I would of ordered with the original order haha


#1638

eBay or AliExpress will have them


#1639

Amazon has them too


#1640

Thanks mate I had a look they won’t ship to Australia… I ended up ordering from rs online and will make my own adapters was a heap cheaper got everything needed to make several sets for about $20aud heaps cheaper than paying usd and it’s next day delivery which is awesome…


#1641

Nah no need for that loopkey then, thanks for clarifying. How about extra fusing between battery and unity? 10s5p 30q if that answers your next question.


#1642

Yeah, a fuse is always good safety. Maybe 80-100 amp fuse.


#1643

if you find a fuse that fits and works well, maybe drop a link here please?

I know nothing about fuses, so I would be pretty lost trying to find one :rofl:
