My Giant Big Stick

I thought I ought to add a new blog entry as I had not done one in quite a while now.


This is my Giant Big Stick from Tower Hobbies. I electrified it with a huge Turnigy 63-74 200kv brushless electric motor. It uses two 5000 mah Lipo battery packs in series for 8 cells total. The motor was popular with the electric skateboard and scooter people a few years ago too. It doesn't rev up all that high so I use a 18x12 propeller on it. It doesn't draw a lot of current per se, around 80 amps full throttle and cruises using around 40-46 amps.


I put the servos in the tail as I didn't like the idea of using real long pushrods with it. But to avoid adding a lot of lead to the nose, I opted to use the motor box and mount the motor farther forward.
