I think we can safely say: that’s a yes Music i’m telling you richie boy. This is the maddest idea. You have come up with in a considerable time matter than this thing. This is my wl toys brushless one, two, four zero one, eight castle 5700 kv motor weighs quite a bit more than ewl toys, one two, four zero one: nine which i’ve just got in. If you thought this was fast on its first run out, i think this might be absolutely terrifying. What have we got going in this brushless conversion today? Well, providing the power we have a gens ace, milliamp, 50c, 3s lipo, and that is powering this castle system castle. Sidewinder 4, with a 6900 kv brushless motor. I figure out, as this thing weighs around about a pound in weight. This motor is going to be all right for this car, but we shall see, but if it all goes to plan, i have a feeling even on the stock gearing this thing is going to be on a mission, unlike a rocket ship. What else are we going to use in today’s conversion, we’ll be using phone tires, because the speed this thing is going to be going, those stock ones are just going to blow and what else i’m going to need? Well i’ve got this motor mount. I bought two of these the other week. That is because this motor mount that’s on the car. If you try and remove the existing motor to convert this to brushless chances are you’re going to destroy the mount or the screws on the mount at fifteen dollars.
For two it’s, a no brainer to my mind, just apply a bit of heat using a soldering iron to the bottom here, to release the thread lock on. There then take the whole motor and the mount off in one far far easier than trying to save the original mouse. So what else am i going to need? Well, we’ve got to ditch the stock radio, because this is a combined esc and receiver so i’m. Using my trusty dumbo rc radio, 30 bucks buys you this radio and it includes a six channel receiver with a built in gyro that you can turn on and off and control from the top of the transmitter. Put a link to that below. The video is at 30 bucks there, one of the bargains of the century and new receivers. Only ten dollars, oh – and i should have said for this conversion – you’re also going to need a small servo to replace the existing one as it’s a five wire servo. Not a three by one, but i need to go with the demo rate anyway time to get on with my brushless one, two: four: zero one: nine conversion and we’re gon na test it later on this video. And if you like, what you see today, don’t forget to subscribe anyway. Let’S see i’m gon na change. The wheels up okay, new wheels on did that at the start, so i didn’t forget and blow one of the wheels.
When i put the brushless setup in first job, i’ve got to do. Remove all of the electric disconnect the top plate gives me nice access to remove all of the electronics. All the remaining plastic of the gears just pulls off now. All i’ve got to do is remove the two screws to get the servo off and put the heat to the two screws. Underneath this motor mount to release the thread lock on there, then i’m going to take that whole assembly out well i’ve removed the fiberglass servo, and i saved that because they can be quite handy to have. Then we put the sub up server in all the end. I have a really neat way of mounting them. I drill two more holes through here and then literally zip locks. The servo tie down it’s only a pound in weight this car, so the steering servo is not going to work hard it’s, not under huge amount of load anyway. Okay, the 124019 is now ready to have all the new electrics fitted first of all i’m gon na fit the new 6900 kv motor to my new motor. Mount i’ve already got a new steel, pinion and spur gears to fit to the car today, just for test purposes, just purely gon na fit opinion. Okay, new motor mounted up i’m in new mount slides in gear is exactly the same as the one that went off. So we don’t have to worry about the pitch.
Well, the motor’s in on its new bracket time, to get my sidewinder 4 installed. Is it going to squeeze in there well it’s, not going to squeeze in across the car it’s going to have to squeeze in along the length there and it’s, giving me just enough clearance for the holes that i need to drill for the servo? So, actually, first of all i’m going to mount the servo and see how much room i’ve got left in there. You servo in time to put in the esc and then i’m gon na squeeze the receiver in out the back. Here. Okay got my receiver in tidied all the wiring up just got ta tidy the motor wiring on the top and fit this brace in so let’s. Do all that right now then, it’s off to test it with my genesis: 2200 milliamp, 3s pack! Well, my installation pretty much complete to see if that wiring squeezes under the lid, but everything looks good to go now. The one thing i would say with the castle sidewinder turned my transmitter on expected to have to calibrate this. However, it was calibrated straight away. Didn’T have to do anything to it, but i will set the end points on it to be on the safe side and to maximize the speed. Well, i’ve calibrated a throttle quick far up. I think we can safely say this is going to be quite fast. How fast let’s take it up to the college and see? Oh, the battery had just tested that way.
Well, that was only on 34. Okay got all the wiring sorted out, so hopefully the body should fit down flush. The only thing i’ve got to do find something find home for the power switch well still a little bit of work to do on the cables, maybe sitting marginally higher. But overall the thing is on pretty square, so uh let’s go see how it runs. Just remember guys, if you like what you see today, don’t forget to subscribe: well, i’m, not so warm or sunny northern california day. I have brought the wl toys one two, four zero one: nine with its brushless conversion out, but it is damp and the car, even with the phone turns on, is proving a little bit interesting on the handling and the weather. Is that bad that my gps signal is my gps is not picking up all the satellites at the minute, so we’ll come back to that see if we can get a speed run out of it or just have a run up and down see how well the Thing handles or not, but, like i said, it’s a little bit of a handful on here at the minute i’m gon na dull, the steering i got the steering jewel right still that down a bit. Oh man, i’ll tell you. I think this thing is this: thing’s got maybe three figures in it. Wait a little bit it’s gon na take i’m feeding the power in.
I think we might only get a speed run out of this in the dry man. It’S just got so much power it’s. Just ridiculous let’s feed that in oh man, that’s going sideways, probably about 40 or 50. man – definitely should be trying this in the dryer richie Music. Even the phone tells us i’ve got to feed that parent Music. This thing is gon na, be like a missile in the dry just started to drift a bit there, but if you want to go faster than when you one tip one four, four: zero zero one i’m thinking this is: oh man, that’s full breaks on. There definitely need to work on my castle esc set up on it. Music want to lift that inside front man. You know the rubber tires on. This would be huge fun on here. As you see, it’s struggling for great, even the phones on there, but it’s like slot car, quick in terms of acceleration, like i say, 6900 kv brushless motor on air today, which is obviously more than enough power in the way to spit that backhand out. Just the lack of is this as a huge amount of grip when i was driving at home on the drive Music man bear in mind this. This motor all the power with this motor comes in at the top end, one of the downsides of the castle sidewinder setup is it tend to overheat on 3s and the efc over temperature has obviously kicked in either that or a flattened battery, which would be quite Impressive yeah esc over temps kicked in.
I can hear it beeping anyway. I think this thing shows awesome. Potential it’s just got the stock gearing on board here today i am going to do a speed run as soon as the weather clears up, and i can get a gps signal bit frustrating not to get one today, but on the other hand, i think with it Being damp out here, this thing is obviously a bit of a handful, and he’s gon na need a completely dry surface for doing that. Speed run anyway. If you don’t want to miss that i’m sure you don’t, then don’t hit like share and subscribe well thumbs up.
