I don’t have a 3D printer, but just found out I can get things printed at my local library for free (in PLA). With that knowledge and the freebie Beecore Lite board I got in the mail recently, I built my first Boss - a 7x16 frame with the 46mm Nano QX props.
I quickly learned that it was a bit too much for my yard and took it out to a local school field today. Wow!!! That thing rips compared to my ducted Silverwhoops! It can pull a power loop without even cutting the throttle up top!
My BetaFPV motors are coming down super hot, though! Uncormfortable to touch to my lips (but not burn them) - significantly hotter that my ducted quads (which just feel hot to my lips). I read earlier in the thread both that the 46mm props are too much for 6mm but don’t make 7mm too hot, but also comments like “all my brushes motors come down way hot.” How hot is too hot? Is there anything I can do to keep the heat down (and make the motors last longer, I presume)?
Now, if only I can find the time to put together a vacuum forming box and make some canopies…
