  • Just a couple of comments if you are looking at tweaking the controller board…. Mil spec stuff tends to have a sprayed on plastic coating to ensure moisture does not interfere with the PCB or bridge contacts during opperation.This may give off a very nasty gas if you heat it too much. The solder is likely to be leaded because even some of the modern military stuff is allowed to be depending on usage due to the tin whisker problem amungst other things.

    If you are going to be driving something with this engine beware of the balance of the shaft you connect to it, at high revs even a little impalance can destroy bearings and anything else connected.

    I look forward to seeing what you guys come up with :-)

No public wish lists :(
