Posted by Nicholas Kirk, Monday, 10 April 2017 on product 10000mAh 6S 22.2v 20C Lipo Battery - Overlander SupersportXL

Question:

Hello John. Please can you help me. I have a 1/4 scale Boeing Peashooter which fly's on a 12S Lipo set up. (2 X 6S) The motor is pulling around 70-75 amps at full throttle. Would the Supersport XL 10000 Lipo be suitable for my model. What I am aiming for is longer flight times. Many thanks. Nick Kirk.

Answers:

  • Posted by John Kliszat on Monday, 10 April 2017

    Hi Nick,

    Running two of the 10000mAh 6S packs in series will let you 70 - 75 amps comfortably.

    Regarding the running time it is hard for my to give you an estimate as it depends on how you are flying.

    If your previous battery was say a 6000mAh 12S in total and say it lasted around 2 hours the 10000mAh pack will last around abit over 3.

    Kind Regards
    John

Posted by paul selley, Monday, 20 June 2016 on product Overlander RC-D100 AC/DC Dual Balance Charger / Discharger

Question:

Hi John, Ive just brought this charger and its great. I called yesterday to seek advise on charging a PB led acid battery (12v / 1A), I was advised by a very helpful lady to charge at a 1C rating. However after re-searching this further, it seem that this rate is much too high, I have seen recomednations of 0.3C / 0.6C and I am very confused. Please could you let me know what is the correct charge rating for my 12v 7A model battery? many thanks, best regards, Paul

Answers:

  • Posted by John Kliszat on Monday, 20 June 2016

    Hi Paul.

    I would recommend charging PB batteries at C/10 so in this case for your 12v 7A battery 0.7A will be fine.

    1C maybe is quite high as a fast charge I wouldn't recommend going above about C/3 at max.

    Hope this helps

Question:

Hi, I have just returned to the world of RC cars and i have bought 4 x Overlander Sport 11.1V 5000mAh 30C LiPo Pack with a Overlander RC-D100 AC/DC Dual Balance Charger/ Discharger, what is the benefit of having this module. Thank you Dean

Answers:

  • Posted by John Kliszat on Monday, 18 January 2016

    Hi Dean,

    Thankyou for your question,

    The main benefit to having the module for the RC-D100 charger is that it is much simpler to change the settings and control the batteries you have on charge.

    All you have to do is download the app for your Iphone or android and you can control the whole thing on there. The only reason you would need to touch the charger is to plug the batteries in.

    On the app you can see how much charge has been put into the battery, how long the battery has been on charge, virtually everything you can see on the charger is shown via the app at the touch of a button.

    Hope this helps

    Looking at the specs from the Annsman charger the pack should be charged in around 18 hours if this was being charged at 180mAh as the charger specs suggest.

Question:

Is it possible to reverse the direction of a brushless motor on the fly with this speed controller or will I have to use a programming card/swap the wires? I was going to use this for a project where i need to be able to reverse the direction of the motors, though it doesn’t matter if this takes a second to do, I just don’t want to have to unplug the wire to reprogram it.

Answers:

  • Posted by John Kliszat on Friday, 11 December 2015

    Hi Theo,

    They can be programmed to go in reverse however you cannot change the direction mid run you will have to re-setup the wires etc unfortunately. So it can either go forward, or reverse.

    For this you will most likely need a quad marine speed controller or a quad car speedcontroller and motor depending on the application.

    Sorry for any inconvenience

Question:

Hi there. Could you tell me, what is maximum under-charge voltage I can go for the 3800mah 7.2v premium sport battery pack, before permanent damage occurs? Thanks in advance.

Answers:

  • Posted by John Kliszat on Monday, 13 July 2015

    Hello,

    Each cell can't go below 0.8v for a Nimh, before permanent damage occurs so in this case the pack can't really go below 4.8v.

Question:

my model weight is 3.6 kilo battery 4 cell 14.8 v prop size 12x6 can you advise me on which motor would be suitable, I have purchased one from this web site a brushless outrunner T4240/10 kv890 watt 540 my esc is 60amp

Answers:

  • Posted by John Kliszat on Monday, 13 July 2015

    Hi William,

    It is recommended that you have 100 watts for every pound which in this case is roughly 8 pounds so 800watts.

    This motor will most likely be pushed to hard as it is 540watts. We would recommend running a 4260/06 on this model this is 900watt and we would recommend running a 14x8 prop with this with a 60A ESC.

    Hope this helps

Question:

Hi, Is it possible to reverse the shaft on overlander motors...? Many Thanks

Answers:

  • Posted by John Kliszat on Monday, 13 July 2015

    Hello,

    Yes you can reverse the shaft on any of our thumper V2 Motors.

    To do this you have to take out the grub scrub, which is located to the side of the shaft at the top of the motor also you must take off the circlip at the base of the shaft.

    Once you have done these you will be able to push the motor shaft through to the other side.

    Hope this helps

Answers:

  • Posted by John Kliszat on Monday, 2 March 2015

    Hi John,

    The motor doesn't actually connect straight to the battery. For the right set up you will need to connect the motor to an ESC first then connect the battery to the ESC. We sell two types of speed controllers one that comes with gold connectors and deans on or another with no connectors. This means you can solder a connector of your choice straight to it.

Hi, What is the difference between the Lipo voltage checker at £15.31 and the Nimh, Lipo voltage checker, capacity... at £12.98? I thought that the £12.98 would do what the £15.31 does but it also gives a digital readout etc., which is better, thanks.

Answers:

  • Posted by John Kliszat on Friday, 4 July 2014

    Hi John

    The only difference between the two checkers is that one of them (SKU 1755) is specifically Lipos only.
    The other one (SKU 2333) can check a range of batteries. This includes Lithium Polymer (LiPo), Lithium Phosphate (LiFe), Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)
    Nickel Cadmium (NiCd).
    There isn't much difference between them both so can't really say which is better, if you want to go off general sales I would think the checker that checks a range of batteries sells more.

Question:

I need to charge and balance a series of 8 LiFe individual batteries which are fully charged at 3.2 volts. If the maximum input voltage is 18 volts how can the charger cope with 8 cells * 3.2 volts = 25.6 volts?

Answers:

    Due to the transformer used in the chargers it steps up the voltage over the balance leads. For example it's possible to charge a 8 cell LiPo which would be 29.6v without any issues. If you have any more problems please contact us on 01524 793328

Question:

Hi do you know if this will plug in to a hubsan spy hawk or will I need a adaptor? and do you know what is the best battery for the hand set. thanks Pete.

Answers:

  • Posted by John Kliszat on Tuesday, 10 June 2014

    Hi Peter

    I have had a look on the web and researched the Hubsan Spy Hawk. They recommend to use a 450mAh 2s battery instead of the 850mAh 2s you are enquiring about. With any battery you would need to get a converter lead because Hubsan use their own special plug that unfortunately we don't stock.
    Regarding the best battery for the handset they also recommend to use 8 x AA single cells. We have just got some of our own Alkaline AA cells in and if you are interested click here and take a look if you like.

    All the best John

Question:

Hi, what ESC timing would you recommend for this motor please? (Running Lipo 3S) Thanks!

Answers:

  • Posted by John Kliszat on Tuesday, 10 June 2014

    Hi Baz

    We would recommend setting the timing to low however you can increase it to medium or high to increase performance. If the motor begins to struggle or run incorrectly then revert to low timing.

    Hope this helps,

    John

Posted by Keith, Tuesday, 10 June 2014 on product 9000mAh 3S 11.1v 30C LiPo Battery - Overlander SupersportXL

Question:

Do these 3S 9000mah packs come with any kind of warranty.? I've over a dozen overlander 3S3350mah packs and never had a bad cell yet, always balance charge and always storage charge after use. Spending a ton on a pack makes me a tad nervous as you can imagine. Just wondered if you have any guarantee on these packs ? Would love to buy a few of these for my FPV build.

    Hi Keith,

    All of our products come with a 1 year warranty, however please follow this link to see the full terms and conditions- http://www.overlander.co.uk/terms

Question:

What is the recommended charge rate for this battery?

Answers:

  • Posted by John Kliszat on Tuesday, 10 June 2014

    Hi Mike,

    We recommend to charge all of our batteries at 1c, this would mean for this particular battery we would say to charge it at no more than 2 amps. For a slow charge we would say charge it at 0.2 amps which would approximatley take 10-12 hours.

    Thanks John
