I'm just back from a spontaneous vacation in Spain - "La Mora" Bay close to Tarragona:
A real insider tip - perfect waves for RC-surfers!
I finally had the opportunity to test Blonde Lisa (brushed Mabuchi 540) and Black Lisa (brushless Seaking) "back to back".
Unfortunately, on the fist day Black Lisa's coupling broke after 10 min :-((
So the first photo shooting was only with Blonde Lisa. The pilot was my 10-year old son.
(I will need several posts for all the pics ;-))
Look what Blonde Lisa can do with her brushed Mabuchi 540!!
After some days I managed to repair Black Lisa's coupling.
My son and me had some epic wave rides with both ladies together on one wave!!
It's a pity no one was there to take some photos!
Next day the waves where almost gone. So my son did some jumping loops and 360s over small waves with her - see pics in following post(s).
My personal résumé after this test is:
- For pure wave riding you don't need a brushless motor.
- I used the same 4000mAh-LiPos for both Lisas. The runtime of brushed Blonde Lisa is almost 5 minutes LONGER than brushless Black Lisa's!
- The power of brushless motors can cause damages (coupling). Brushless Black Lisa needs much more maintenance and repairs than brushed Blonde Lisa!
- For jumping you definitely need a brushless motor - GREAT FUN!
