  • Reman: I did double check it with a metre (Mainly because I knew if I didn't check the polarity this would be the time the manufacturer had gone off script and put the negative in the middle of the coax) and felt slightly cheated because it was only making 19.7 volts. :)

  • Bajadre: yeah heat and wring never a good thing only a matter of time :(
    January 04, 2019, 10:12:57
  • Bad Raven: Well, it should! Rated for 24v. Be careful, have you checked the PSU output?  Many psu that (say) are supposed to be 12v actually output 16-18v. Is your 20v actually less than 24v??
    January 04, 2019, 08:41:14
  • Reman: Just modified the cable on a 20V 7A PSU to connect to my TS100........ It.... Erm..... Heats up a bit quicker than it did on 12V. LOL !!!

  • Reman: I didn't try to taste it, but it gave off that kind of smell that gets you in the back of the throat. :)

I'm running an Indoor RC club with the main model raced being a E010/JJRC H36 based Whoover, currently we have 15 racing and four in build.  (by 11-15 years olds)

This new model appears to offer nothing we could use, in fact the temptation (or need) to make it airborne would be a definite safety and damage inducing hazard. (and we do micro quad racing, too!)

It looks like the rear body is wider than the front. If so the model will "nose in" against skirting/track edging (we use square drainpipe) and without getting it airborne can it carry on forwards and turn out of trouble? It can clearly reverse as a quad, but how well controlled if at all is it when staying grounded?   Backwards is not where you want to go anyway, you just need to be able to turn away from a barrier you have slid against.  Can it?

In UK sized halls with UK sized tracks extra size, power, speed and weight is a complete disadvantage, it only induces wider drifts and overspeeding. I have experimented with more power and more weight, ultra light and 3D print frames, also E011 with larger motors................ NO advantage!

It is a novelty in the way an Eflite Convergence is, but like that this seems to be neither one thing nor the other, merely something in between (to quote Paddy Ashdown!), so there seems no lasting practical application for it.

Now if they'd have produced an E010 based purpose made Hovercraft..............................

Hi, interesting analysis. I have yet to receive and review this and will see how it does.

Quick look at Banggood, £72.50 discounted to £60.41.

AFAICS, PLUSES:-

Brushless
Reasonable value when adding up components
Certainly works fairly well



MINUSES:-

Brushless (WHAT, as well??!!)................. well, around here at least Whoover racing is exclusively brushed 6mm motors, so I can hear calls of "you can take your oversized overpowered heap and stick it!!" if attempting to run with the pack. Was it a Freudian slip  that the group rushed to remove the gates when you started?   ;) :laugh:

Lets get real, Whoover racing is either a home made Depron/Frozen Pizza foam/DroneJunkie body with E010 or JJRC H36 gear.  SO LOS racing is £7 plus around £10, with a camera/vtx adding £15, or around HALF the cost of this even if you buy all new and don't recycle a broken quad. And that includes a Transmitter. 

AND no ostracisation from Whoover pilots with the normal race item!  :laugh:

I'm now regularly running std Whoovers at three locations with a spread of fifty miles. With over 40 Whoovers in the group and numbers steadily growing weekly we have not had one single failure despite very hard use, no motor failures, no FC failures, nix.

Whoover racing is getting people into FPV that otherwise would never attempt it as the std whoover is a non-aggressive fun machine that has no fear factor from either users nor if juniors, parents, so where does this fit in?  I'm not sure.

So, do I feel an itch to get one?  Not currently, no.
