Hi,
During one of my dreaming session, I thought of putting a dynamo generator onto my heli. The dynamo generator is the same as those used on bicycles to generate electricity for the lamps.
Why not we use the dynamo to generate electricity to charge the rx battery while we are flying. Of course some modifications have to be made to the rx battery.
And how to place the generator to tap the power from the engine..
If this can be done, say goodbye to field charges!

It's a brainstorming session....please post your comments!

Happy Flying!

Well, If you add the weight of the generator plus the control system and subtract the power extracted by the the system then figure in the added complexity, you may learn to love your field charger.

Sullivan models make or made an on-board generator, if you really want to try it.

Thought it was a while since I had seen them advertised. Probably be able to pick them up second hand, I suppose.

Hmmm

A friend of mine has the Champion that flew for 10 hours, 10 minutes and 10 seconds. They were matching the type of record a real heli had made a few months prior for 10 days, 10 hours and 10 minutes.

If I'm correct, that flight may still hold the record for the longest R/C heli flight.

My buddy actually still has the heli and was thinking about donating it to the AMA museum, but then decided not to.

It had a full on board charging system and am told it worked flawlessly. I will try to get with him later this evenign to get more details for everyone and psosibly some pictures.
