Yep, I agree.

Will the Mod 7 main gear hold up to 5kw of E power though?

Im happy with my D3 nitro powered, its hauling ass just fine.
Some aspects of E power are very tempting though.

Ive got 6s 4200 45c packs, and I could raid a YGE120 HV esc off my logo.
Id just need to buy a motor.
Will see how much work is in it for maybe doing a test.

I think Im going to buy the conversion, not really expensive.
But nothing will happen until winter.
Got too much going on with other projects for now.

For the love of the hobby

Gorn,
I understand your worries in case of a crash, but as you know nothing is bullet proofed in RC helicopter flighing. So far I didn't had a crash (touch wood) and I even think this position of batteries is better in case of a crash than another one.

I use a Pyro 700 in combination with a Kontronik HeliJive. The power is absolutely great, no need for me to look for more power - I don't regret that I converted it from nitro to e-power. To be honest, I also would have some concerns using a motor with 5kw...

Hi Ken So

yes of course they will ship to Hong Kong as well. Just write an email to info@hirobo.ch and add the comments you'd like to order this conversion kit. They will send you then an invoice which you have to pay in advance.

Aaron,

The Hirobo 60/90 gearing is mod 1.

As long as the mesh as good, the gear is kept lubed, and you use at least an 11 tooth pinion, it can withstand the power.

Hi everyone, I'm designing a electric chasis for the D3!

My Options
Space for motors from Pyro 700 to scorpion 5025
Adjustable gear "width"
Original D3 "look like"
Batteries in the middle of the frame
Enough space for batteysize like 12s 5000mAh

I think i will have the first prototype in the next two weeks!

Here it is, what do you think?

Best Regards
Dennis

Are you planning on selling them, or just making for yourself?

Looks very nice. Please post more info and pictures of the final product. Are you planning on making them out of carbon or g10? Any idea on what the final weight is going to be?

Thanks

Shure I will post more stuff!
I will make the frames out of carbon!
At the moment I can not say anything about the weight, but it should be a bit lighter than the original chasis!

If I have the first prototype I will check it!

Keep the updates coming. I think you need a center support on your battery tray so you can strap the batteries in independently. Looks great so far.

Hi Tim,

Thank you, but can you please explain what do you meant with strap de batteries independently?
Under the motor is already a plate where you can strap your batteries on, like the Vibe E12

Looks good and a lot of work put in.

2 points from me:

1) how is the cofg as little room to move fore/aft. Other D3 conversions seem to have packs further rearward.

2) The frame could be stronger if you left the sides in place rather than removing not sure on the need for that and lose the base plate in favor of one or 2 frame spacers which could be carbon.

Hoe you don't mind my input (I want one :-)

I imagine he means a middle to the plate that you could run your straps through to just one battery. I like the idea of a plate with both attached with a quick release system. Have batteries pre mounted to spare plates simple swap.
