Have you put a few flights on it to see if it's putting charge back in your battery? I hope it works out good for you,or lets say i know it will work good for you. What heli did you put it on and did you buy the mounting kit? Did you get the Voltmagic or the LED with it?

Thanks

put it on my spectra g, I have the voltmagic, but I was checking it with my dura lite load tester.
Mounting kit from Raja, I got the gen off a rr member.

Nice bit of kit isnt it? I installed mine on my new Turbine Predator, works like a charm. I was going to put it on my gasser btu never got around to it...will have to get another one!

Its a very sensible thing to fit, the turbine wont have long flight times as such. For gassers though, where you can easily get 40 mins per tank there is no excuse to not fit the Jewel.

Quality takes........time!

Mike you mean you did not buy it from Raja? Your taking a chance that it might not work. Good Luck.

Raja
Let me tell you one thing about Raja and buying his unit's second hand!! If you ever have a problem with it He treats you like the first time buyer when It comes to helping he's the greatest. I picked up a second hand generator and voltmagic. I had problems with the voltmagic and he got the owner on the voltmagic to pm me and they both helped me work out the problems. Now how's that for service after the sale.

Li-Ion battery...

Nice Job.

By the time I got my spectraG I decided to run a duralite 7.4 volts, 5200 mah, External balance, Li-Ion... An expensive choice because of high consumption servos and heavy load gasser.

More than six fligths, 15 minute each, per Charge...

So, you are running your gasser with a simple 4.8 volts, 2000 mah , NiCd and this Onboard-charger?

My dura-lite batt is regulated at 5.1volts, 4000 mah, the gen is regulated at 5.53 volts.

Wait a minute...

The onboard-charger is connected to 7.4 volts li-Ion battery or downstream regulator?

I dont get it.

I dont get it.
Actually yes the on-board generator can be connected to a 7.4v li-ion battery upstream from the regulator as long as the battery is behind a switch when the helicopter is not in use.

Or you can eliminate the use of the second stepdown regulator by just lowering the generator voltage and using a suitable battery to go with that.

My gen is on it's way. Can I use a Gem 2000 battery monitor with it?

Has anyone ever tested the max amperage you can get out of one of Raja's generators? I'm just curious.

Max amps
Helizrule:

Yes you can use a Gem 2000 with it.

Justin:

You can pull 3 amps continuous out of the regulator. It can burst up to 5 amps draw but cannot maintain that and will eventually overheat. If it does it has thermal protection shutdown to avoid damage and will just cycle off and back on within a couple of seconds to keep the temps within the range. As the current drops it will continue to run normally and provide power.

The first amp limit is in the regulator. More current can be had if necessary by doubling up on the regulators, but for most this is not needed. The generator motor itself can handle about 12amps at 5.4v before it starts to overheat.
