Hyper 7 Brushless conversion - 11.20.2008, 07:25 PM

So it's finally finished! Well, not really, but it's drivable... So far for my first brushless it seems alright... Here's what I got
Feigao 8L motor
Castle Creations Mamba Max with internal BEC disabled. (from BL_RV0)
Airtronics 94357 servo
Futaba 3 ch FM receiver
Protek 5s 20c 4000mah lipo (from KaztheMinotaur)
Some unknown modded 6v Rx battery from an airsoft gun.
Ran great for about 5 minutes, then it did a barrel roll across a 2 lane driveway, and I lost the last setscrew for my pinion
I'm also working on a fan setup for my MM too, with a new tray for it to sit on.
All I'm waiting for now is my BEC to come in and paint for my new body and then I'll be done(for now...)

tell me what you think






The new esc tray

Looking good mike,
Those motor wires are obnoxiously long, Why not rotate the MM 180* so that the wires are right there- thats probably whats causing your range problem. least you can do is braid the motor wires so some of the noise is cancelled


Should be a good time at Trax 70 this upcoming season

well the battery wires are too short to flip it. besides, it was such a pain to take it off last time... 3 hex wrenches, a pair of scissors some vice grips

Did you soldier any additional caps on to the mm esc? With 5s and no caps, that may be pushing it a bit IMO....I can't tell from the pics.

How does it work with the 5s? It's a V2 MM... They don't like 5s too much ! hear. Not sure though as I haven't ran the ESC.


Get me back into RC!

Looks nice. I think you need to step up your game and get an XL though. If you have some money to blow take a look into medusa motors.

well, I didnt solder any extra caps on, mainly because I dont have a soldering iron anymore... mine died :( as for 5s, it runs pretty well on there... the components are all rated for 5s, minus the bec. it does get kinda hot, but thats why I am mounting a 40mm fan on it(see the standoffs on the new esc mount) i do need a new motor but I got this one for basically free so im gonna run it 'til I get money, or steal ben's god-truggy with the mmm combo
