Marc is well on his way.John (all in)
Put me down for one.
Hope you get this project going.
This is this best thread I have read in a while.
He got most of his kit just yesterday for his Aviomania two place G2SA.
So Now I will devote more time to this project and help. But Mark as it about finished and I do not have to write the driver another employee and friend is writing it. If he cannot get it to work I will help re-write the code but I may not be needed at all other than to fund it for PRA and buy the parts in volume for us all.
He has 36 volts now and our first version is for 2 places heavy rotors much more powerful than anything on the market.
The way the gearing is designed we can add a second motor side by side to the gearing and make it even more powerful if we need to.
He has 3 regulators circuit charging the 3 batteries while in flight and a ground system charging it on the ground.
He is a master machinist and knows gearing and where to get them and the right ones. That is part of is business doing projects much like this!!!
When this is done we will all owe Marc !!! I have the BEST friends in the world. I may be one of the riches people in the world in what really matters FRIENDS and Marc and I think alike (His brain is broken too) so we are very close and talk as much as we can!!
Once the heavy weight one is finished it should be easy for anyone to just step down the motor or voltage or both and create a cheaper version for light weight gyroplanes.
However they are going to be more expensive and the only way to reduce the cost is buying in VOLUME. PRA is perfect for that part of this mission!
