Twin Pond hopper

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Here is a picture of my twin Pond Hopper. It has two GWS can motors direct drive with two Castle Creation 20amp speed controllors, using 2 Kokam 3 cell packs, one on each esc. It takes off the water very easily and flys well for being over weight. I don't worry about weight to much someday I should start.

Nice work Slocan!

Is this one that you designed? It looks like a lot of fun.

Well now . Is there a reason you are using 2 esc's on the brushed motors? one should drive them both just fine, and one Kokam pack would probably work as well, you might be pulling 6 amps per motor no? So 12 amps total. If one pack can hack it maybe give it a try, light flies better .

Nice flying area btw, no trees .
